Reflections 2022-2023


Reflections is back for another year and we love to see what students come up with!  

This year’s theme is Show Your Voice!  What does that mean to you? 


Hi FHES Community!


We are so excited to bring back Reflections this year. For those who are new to Reflections, each year over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. This 50+ year-old program helps them explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.


The program at FHES will run from September 1st - October 21st. All submissions must be submitted online by October 21st. Ready to submit? Click here!


Our school will participate in 2 divisions:

  1. Photography
  2. Literature

Reflections break out each division into different age groups. For elementary school this will be:

  • Primary (Pre-K - Grade 2)
  • Intermediate (Grades 3-5)
  • Middle School (Grades 6-8)
  • Special Artist (Grades K-5, 6-12)

All rules for this program will be posted on the PTA website for all divisions and information on the Special Artist division. Submissions will be made ONLINE (no prints for photography) and must follow all rules included in the attachments. One winner from each division AND age group will be selected by a panel to be submitted to Fairfax County. Those winners can go on to a national level competition. All participants at FHES will receive a recognition award.


We are looking for a few volunteers to help judge submissions for each division and age group. The more volunteers we have will equate to less entries to judge. We are working to obtain an online judging form from FCPS and will share with our panel of judges.


If you are interested in judging please email Alejandra Paulovich, VP of Programs. (Please login to view Alejandra's email.)


Thank you for all of your support with this program for our students!
