Attending the Ceremony
When arriving at RBFCU, follow signage for Employee Entrance Gate C and follow directional signage towards the drive-through check-in. During check-in, you will be added to a waitlist app so that we can text you when it is time for your student’s ceremony. Your family will remain in the car until it is your turn to enter the building. Bathrooms will be available inside the building at any time.
What to expect:
- Families will be ushered into the building at a steady rate.
- Families will stay together until it is time for their student(s) to make their way on stage.
- Everyone will remain standing. Families will walk towards the front center of the auditorium to stand center with the stage.
- The awarded student(s) will walk across the stage while their family is watching from the audience.
- The student(s) will pause for pictures with the Texas PTA President center stage, then reunite with their family.
- Families will exit the auditorium together. There will be another photo opportunity in the lobby.
If your family would like to sit in the auditorium to watch other students receive their awards, you are welcome to do so. Please be considerate to the other students receiving their awards when entering and exiting the auditorium. When your family receives the text that it is time for your ceremony, the student and at least one adult will need to exit the auditorium and check-in with the staff member at the front doors.
Parking and Directions
When on N Loop 1604 E Access Rd, proceed through Entrance C and follow signs for the ceremony check-in. Texas PTA will have a drive-through check-in setup under some tents.
