PTA Holiday Shop: December 12-16
Every class is assigned a day to come shop. Envelopes will go home ahead of time so parents can help make shopping lists and set spending limits. We’ll need several PTA volunteers throughout the week to help our shoppers so we can move classes through on schedule. A sign up genius will go out for this a few weeks before the event.

 PTA Holiday Event: Tuesday December  13, 6-7:30
This is a fun family event. We will open the holiday shop for this evening and also have holiday games and activities for the family. Note that we do  not have a December general PTA meeting – we encourage our families to join us for our Holiday Event. We will also need PTA volunteers for set-up/clean-up and help during the event. A sign up genius will also go out for this prior to the event.

Parent Connection: Inviting all parents!

Parent Connection: Inviting all parents!

Rockwall ISD has a great event coming up to benefit parents with children of all ages.  This went out in our newsletter recently but we wanted to tell you a little more about the event here.

On Saturday, October 1, 8:30 AM to noon, Rockwall ISD counseling staff will be hosting an event at Cain Middle School.  They are inviting parents in the district with children of all ages to come out to learn more about healthy communication with your child.  They’ve brought in some great speakers for the event.  The morning will be divided into different sessions you may attend.  The graphic tells a little more about each session.

The event is free but you must register to attend on the website.  No childcare will be provided at the event.
