Celebrating the Groundbreaking for the Rebuild of Clear Creek ISD's League City Elementary
League City, TX – On May 30th, Clear Creek ISD celebrated breaking ground on the rebuild of League City Elementary School. The demolition of the original 57 year old building was completed earlier this month and the new school will be built on the same site. The building will house grades PreK-5 and has a capacity of 900 students.
Ken Hutchens, VLK Principal, said ,“We are excited to see the rebuild of League City Elementary School begin construction and look forward to the day students, families, and teachers step into their new learning environment and discover what has been designed for them! We greatly appreciate our continued partnership with Clear Creek ISD and their trust in VLK Architects to help them meet the needs of the communities they serve.”
The core of this new campus is made up of administration, gymnasium, and cafeteria spaces. Two classroom wings coming off of the shared core space allow public events to be held in the evenings while closing off the classroom areas. The building also features a “Communities in School” space for adult learning classes as well as collaboration spaces in each pod and throughout the building.
“The new League City will be state of the art while deeply rooted in its rich and important history,” said Dr. Greg Smith, Clear Creek ISD Superintendent. “It will be exciting for the students here to watch their new school house emerge from the soil we are standing on today.”
The site of the new facility incorporated the existing skate park with an added canopy cover, and recreated an outdoor Science Habitat similar to the one at the previous building. Additional outdoor spaces dedicated to Art, Science, and Engineering/STEM classrooms will have both grass and hard surfaces for educational and recreational experiences. The new school is expected to open August 2019.
