What is Dressed to Learn?

The Lewisville ISD PTA Council Dressed to Learn program provides clothing items to LISD students in need who may be experiencing: Financial hardship, homelessness, parent/guardian unemployment, or home displacement due to fire, etc.

Students in need are identified by Communities In Schools North Texas (CISNT) Site Coordinators and/or school counselors. To ensure student privacy, counselors and/or site coordinators will connect with the Dressed to Learn program to set up a delivery to the campus with the needed items. Depending on the items available in the closet, deliveries may take up to 2-3 days. If you know of a student in need, please contact their school counselor or CISNT Site Coordinator.

Reflections has been a staple arts program in many schools for over 50 years. Through the efforts of our Local PTAs, millions of students have found a creative outlet in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts.

With positive recognition as the focus of this program, rather than competition, students of all ages and abilities can experience the benefits of creative expression and help in finding their own voice in telling their unique story.

Started in 1969 by Mary Lou Anderson, then Colorado PTA President, Reflections has grown to be one of the largest nationwide programs of its kind, with more than 200,000 students participating annually.

Express your artistic talent and tell us how you plan to change the world through Reflections!

  • Who your PTA pays for may be listed in your Standing Rules. If this is not the case, traditionally the dinner for the PTA President, Principal, Award Winners and Guest each are paid for by the local unit, which is dependent on availability of funds and an approved budget expense.
