Georgetown ISD’s second elementary school broke ground June 20.

Wolf Ranch Elementary School will be located off of D.B. Wood Road south of Hwy. 29 and will host 850 students.

“The importance of this type of neighborhood school has been a big value to our community,” GISD board of trustees President Scott Stribling said. “We’ve always been about neighborhood schools, [and] being able to walk to your campuses as an elementary kid is a priority.”

The ceremony is the second held within a week as the district broke ground on Everett L. Williams Elementary School on June 18.

Stribling, who has been on the board for six years, said the groundbreaking was his fifth.

“The growth we have in Georgetown is unprecedented,” Stribling said.

Once complete, Wolf Ranch will become the new home to students from Pickett Elementary School, located at 1100 Thousand Oaks Blvd., Georgetown.

The project will cost $29.7 million and is funded through the 2018 bond voters approved in November.
