CEREMONIES AT NEW SCHOOLS
The district will hold leveling ceremonies for its 12th and 13th elementary schools on July 31. During the ceremonies, the Kyle and Buda Masons will check that the cornerstones of the buildings are level.
The ceremony for Pfluger Elementary, 4951 Marsh Lane in Buda, will begin at 9 a.m. The school is named for former Trustee Ralph Pfluger, who did not run for reelection in May. He served as a mentor to elementary students and will attend that ceremony. He was a member of the district’s first school board in 1967 and served until 1974. He was elected to the board again in 2004.
Robin Kelley-Broadway, former principal of Green Elementary School and a former assistant principal in the Austin school district, will be Pfluger Elementary’s principal.
The ceremony for Carpenter Hill Elementary School, 4410 RM 967 in Buda, will begin at 10:30 a.m. Jodie Wymore, a former Hays district teacher, assistant principal and principal, will be principal.
Staff and volunteers will offer tours of the schools after the ceremonies.
