Spring ISD will celebrate the opening of Springwoods Village Middle School with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Oct 5 at 9:30 a.m., according to a Sept. 30 news release. Located at 1120 Crossgate Blvd., Spring, the school officially opened Aug. 14—the start of the 2019-20 school year.

The two-story, 149,207-square-foot campus features classrooms; fine arts and dining facilities; a library; and gymnasiums on the first floor, with additional classrooms on the second floor, according to the release. The campus also features naturally lit classrooms, flexible learning areas, a maker-space area, a courtyard and athletic fields.

With a capacity of 725 students, the school is also working to become home to an International Baccalaureate Program.

“We are very excited to welcome everyone to see our new facility,” Principal Kimberly Culley said in a statement. “Now is the perfect time to host the official ribbon-cutting because everyone will be able to see how well this beautiful building is working for our students.”

The $44.6 million project was part of a $330 million SISD bond program passed by voters in November 2016.

“Our community was very supportive of our bond program and saw this investment into Springwoods Village Middle School as key to strengthening our district,” SISD Superintendent Rodney Watson said in a statement. “I’m looking forward to being able to celebrate this school with an official ceremony that brings everyone together.”

The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held in one of the school’s two gymnasiums and will be followed by guided tours of the campus, the release states. 281-891-6000. www.springisd.org
