Round Rock ISD counseling services have prepared a seminar series designed to inform the community about timely health and well-being topics affecting today’s high school students.
“The topics selected for the F.Y.I. Seminar Series were identified in a survey by parents of high school students as subject matters they wanted to know more about,” Dr. Christina Wiswell, director of counseling services, said. “The sessions are open to everyone in the community, but are most appropriate for high school students and parents of high school students.”
Sessions will be at the 700 building of Round Rock High School located at the Old Hopewell building, 1311 Round Rock Ave. Round Rock (just across from Sonic) from 6 to 7 p.m.
