Pflugerville ISD is now accepting suggestions for the naming of its next two schools.
 
Voters in 2018 approved a $332 million bond issue to include the construction of three new schools, including two currently under construction adjacent to Weiss High School. Elementary 22 and Middle School 7 are both scheduled for completion in fall 2021.
 
Community members are invited to submit name suggestions via online surveys. Suggestions may include historical, geographical or community sites; a significant individual or family making a significant contribution to public education in the district; or a significant state or national figure. (CW Local Policy)
 
The surveys may be accessed at:

Elementary 22

Middle School 7

Name suggestions will be accepted until 5 p.m. Sept. 17.
 
Elementary 22 will include 117,000 square feet of space, including classrooms with double doors, a Maker Space for hands-on STEM activities, a Community Room for educational opportunities and meetings, dedicated outdoor learning spaces and energy efficient LED lighting. 
 
Middle School 7 will provide 196,000 square feet of space, featuring: 

  • 27 general studios, 
  • nine science labs, 
  • two art labs, 
  • three special education spaces with kitchen and sensory rooms, 
  • band and choir rooms with practice and ensemble rooms, 
  • a 2,000 square-foot multipurpose room, 
  • two gymnasiums with locker rooms and 
  • a parent room for the community. 
     

A PfISD veteran administrator and recent principal of Murchison Elementary, Reese Weirich was selected principal for Elementary 22. Former Westview Middle School Principal Jorge Franco has been named principal for Middle School 7.
 
“I’m excited about this new opportunity Dr. Killian and the Board of Trustees are allowing me,” Weirich said. “I am looking forward to my new challenge. It is an honor to lead PfISD’s newest elementary school, and I aim to be a servant leader and make it a special place for our students to learn and grow together.” 
 
Community members were involved in the naming of the district’s two newest campuses, Mott Elementary, named after former PfISD teacher and current board President Vernagene Mott, and Weiss High School, named after a prominent Pflugerville family.
