Central Elementary PTA Scholarship


The Central Elementary School Parent Teacher Association established an independent annual scholarship, in the amount of $500, for a Central Elementary student graduating Rockbridge County High School.


Applicants must have attended Central Elementary School for at least three full grade levels, K through 5, must have shown and continue to show good moral character, good citizenship, service to the school and/or the community, and must plan to attend either an academic or technical school program following graduation.


The application packet with the completed application, letter of intent, and two letters of recommendation must be returned to the RCHS Guidance Office on or before May 1, 2018.  Questions may be directed to  centralbearspta@gmail.com


The scholarship recipient will be announced at the RCHS Senior Night Awards Ceremony, planned for May 24, 2018. 


Family Fun Night on Friday, April 6, was a success!  More than 400 people attended the event and the PTA raised more than $750 for our school!  Thank you to all of the families who attended and to all the volunteers who helped.  




And the Reflections Winners are…


Congratulations to the students who submitted art, literature, and photography pieces related to the theme “Within Reach” for the Central PTA Reflections contest.  Our first place entries have been sent to the Virginia PTA, which will judge students’ artistic efforts from throughout the state.  Central's Reflections entries are on display in the library.   Stop by and check out the artistic talent of these students.



Our 2017-2018 school year has been going great, thanks to the dedicated and talented staff at Central and an amazing team of PTA volunteers!


We appreciate the opportunity to lead our school's PTA, as well as the family support that helps make Central such an outstanding school.    If you have PTA questions, comments, or suggestions, please feel free to contact us.
