It’s Never Too Early to Start Planning for College Scholarships!

The Rockwall Council of PTAs is an association of all of the local PTA groups in our district.  The Council meets several times a year.  Each PTA is represented by their president and at least one council delegate at each meeting.  School principals are also invited to attend.

Most meetings occur during the school day, but the next meeting has been moved to the evening.  This meeting will feature a special program called “Successful Scholarship Applications”.  It will be beneficial for parents, teachers, and students in the 5th grade and up.  This program is presented by Heather Ashwell-Hair, Vice-President Leadership, TX PTA with guidance by Marty Barbieri, Director of Counseling Services, RISD and will take place Tuesday, February 7, 2017 at 7:00pm following the Council PTA meeting at Rockwall High School Cafeteria Annex.
