Recognition & News
For the fourth time and the second year in a row, the Holy Family Catholic School Iron Angels have earned the title of “Texas BEST Robotics Championship Team” proving that our little middle school can “think outside the box” as well as any high school.
This season's challenge - “OUTBREAK, Adjusting to the Threat” – started with twenty-eight teams. Holy Family designed a virtual (CAD) robot named St. Edmund that could isolate cells, detect healthy cells vs. infected cells, and deliver a vaccine when needed giving them a second-place finish in the head to head virtual robotics tournament.
In the COVID Minecraft Challenge, hosted by UT Dallas, they built a clinic, tapped rubber trees and mined to produce PPE and find cures for patients. In round 1 the Holy Family virtual clinic came in sixth place beating over 20 high schools in the Austin area. After round two, we currently stand in first place nationally! The national competition continues until midnight on December 31st.
Other awards earned include a third place finish overall in the BESTMania Skills Quiz and a first place finish in the website design challenge.
The Iron Angels worked online through Microsoft Teams and Zoom to overcome numerous obstacles to ensure they were well represented. Please join us in congratulating this talented, creative, competitive and motivated group of middle school students.

Construction began at Holy Family on April 20th, 2020! This marks the beginning of the progress that we have waited so long for.
We are truly inspired by our friends and families that support us in so many ways. It is particularly wonderful when your support enhances the school environment in both beauty and function. Thank you for sharing our campaign vision - Mission Ready! Growing to Serve.
In accordance with direction provided by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, and in the best interest of the health and safety of our students and staff, Holy Family Catholic School will follow Round Rock ISD schools and offices and remain closed for the remainder of the 2019 -2020 school year. We will continue to provide Distance Learning through the end of the school year calendar. We will have more information soon about picking up personal belongings and materials. All of the faculty and staff appreciate the support and partnership our families have provided us during this challenging time.
