Special Features Planned
for District’s 33rd Elementary

The design for the district’s 33rd elementary school will be unveiled at tonight’s Board of Trustees’ meeting. WRA Architects will present the schematic design for the school to be built south of Interstate 20 at the intersection of Lawson and Lasater roads.

It’s an impressive plan, designed first and foremost to support the instructional practices. The proposal calls for the campus to offer an abundance of natural light, and research shows this promotes learning. In addition, the octagon-shaped Library is completely accessible to classrooms, making it easy for classes to visit for research projects.

Features unique to our district elementary schools include a learning courtyard between two classroom wings with benches and ground-level covering for students to sit on during outdoor instruction. The walking trail that will compliment the school’s outdoor playground is also like none other.

This new campus will be built in a highly populated area of Mesquite ISD. It will relieve crowding at Mackey and Gray elementaries.

With board approval, the project will go out for bids this February, and construction will begin in March 2014. The school will open in August of 2015.
