Burnet's Veterans! We proudly celebrate and acknowledge Ms. Michel, Mr. Reeves and Mr. Venable!

Honor. Service. Sacrifice. Duty.

To the men and women of the United States Armed Forces the words hold a special meaning. For hundreds of military veterans in Dallas ISD these values continue to be called upon daily in service to students, families and our community.

With the same devotion they showed to our country, these men and women now serve to create opportunities for the next generation to pursue academic excellence. With

Veterans Day quickly approaching, Dallas ISD is honored to recognize its employees whose sacrifice has made our country a better place. On Tuesday Nov. 11, the district will proudly celebrate and acknowledge these heroes and heroines.
