Celebrating those who served this Veterans Day: A message from Superintendent Dr. Steve Flores

Round Rock ISD community and family,

We are fortunate to have the opportunity each year to honor the men and women who served and sacrificed for our freedom in the armed forces. Their strength and bravery to defend our nation allow us as a community the opportunity to come together each day to provide our children with a safe learning environment, world-class resources and the ability to discover their passions in life.

This year, I am reminded of how many of our Round Rock ISD family and community members have served in the armed forces as we host our District’s annual Veterans Day Luncheon. It is a proud time to be able to recognize so many men and women in our District family for their service and we are humbled that they have now chosen to serve the students and families in Round Rock ISD. Similar events recognizing our veterans’ efforts are taking place throughout our 55 campuses and I am honored to be a part of a District that continues to place great emphasis on celebrating our veterans.

As a nation, we will come together to celebrate these individuals, their service and our freedom. It’s a responsibility that we should all honor and work toward preserving for generations of Americans.

I would like to send a wholehearted thank you to all veterans in our Round Rock ISD family and community, especially those who are parents, guardians, mentors, role models and educators for our students. Your service shows us the strength of our country and allows our community to educate children of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.

The service and sacrifice of our country’s veterans allow us to continue to pursue our vision of being the Destination District for Public Schools and providing a world-class education to all students. Thank you for your support and for being a part of celebrations of service and freedom.  We are #rrisd1family!

Respectfully,

Steve Flores, Ph.D.
Superintendent of Schools
