Mr. Joe Gullekson, Principal
Welcome to the Richard E. Cavazos Elementary School website. I am Joe Gullekson the principal. I cannot express the excitement that I feel as we enter the 2017-2018 school year. I have been in the Killeen Independent School District for 27 years. My wife, Toni has been with the school district for 31 years. Together we have two wonderful children, Madison and Rayann.
As your principal, you can expect that I will reach out to you and ask for your support, ideas, suggestions, and involvement. I will encourage you to join our team, where preparing children for the future is our number one priority. I pledge to do my best to ensure that each child is challenged, cared for, and provided with a safe and thought-provoking learning environment.
In order to give each child the best opportunity for success, we ask that we keep children first in all that we do. I know that our community is that kind of community.
As we work together during the year, I invite you to stay in contact and let us know how you and your child(ren) are experiencing school. Please do not hesitate or ever think your comment or concern is unimportant. Through teamwork, open communication, and a dedication to continuous improvement, we can make this school a place for your children to express their committment to learning.
We look forward to working together as partners in learning! Here's to a terrific year!"
