Work is nearing completion on the Rockwall Independent School District’s newest elementary school.
The district released a photo this week, showing the progress of Garcia Elementary School, which is scheduled to open for the fall semester.
On January 5, the Rockwall ISD board of trustees’ Naming Facilities Committee began accepting nominations for the designation of Elementary School 16 located at 310 Williamsburg Parkway in Fate.
In February, the board voted to name the campus Lupe Garcia Elementary School, after the longtime classroom educator. Garcia’s career spanned 40 years serving as a Dobbs Elenentary School teacher. The school will open in fall 2021.
During the same meeting Steven Pesek was named as the school’s first principal. Pesek has 19 years of public education experience, including five years as the principal of Shannon Elementary School.
