Join us on Saturday, April 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Cedar Ridge High School, 2801 Gattis School Road in Round Rock for the annual Celebration of Families parent and family resource fair.

Round Rock ISD students of all ages, with their parents, will enjoy demonstrations, interactive activities and access to community resources that feature after-school and teaching and learning opportunities.

Round Rock ISD parent programs is a proud organizer of the Celebration of Families event. There is no cost to attend.

At 11 a.m. the Round Rock Empty Bowls Festival — a service learning project – will welcome guests into the cafeteria for its ninth year of bringing awareness to hunger in the greater Round Rock area.

Districtwide students create one-of-a-kind ceramic bowls available to purchase for a suggested $10.00 donation. Purchase of a bowl includes a lunch meal of soup, bread, and water or lemonade. The modest meal represents the reality of hunger experienced in our community and community at large.

Festival guests will also enjoy wheel-throwing demonstrations, a silent auction and student entertainment.

Proceeds from the Empty Bowl Festival go to feed the hungry in our community via the Round Rock Area Serving Center. The Serving Center has been operating a food pantry for 30 years and serves over 1,000 families every month.
