Construction crews raised the first walls at Elementary School #34 on December 17. By the end of the day, 15 walls stood at 2800 Sauls Drive and the school was provided with an official name – Joe Lee Johnson Elementary.
The Round Rock ISD Board of Trustees approved the naming and attendance zones for Joe Lee Johnson Elementary School, the district’s 34th elementary school, during their December 17 meeting. The school is slated to open August 2016.
Johnson served as a principal, coach, teacher and bus driver for Round Rock ISD from 1950 to 1986. He also attended and graduated from Hopewell School, then served as its principal during the desegregation period in 1966.
Crews are currently working on installing the school’s structural support system and are waiting for additional tilt walls to cure.
