Katy ISD Announces Proposed Names for Two New Elementary Schools
Katy ISD Naming Selection Committee recently announced the proposed names for the next two new elementary schools which will be opening for school year 2014-2015. Elementary School number 36 located in Pine Mill Ranch and Elementary School number 37 located in Cross Creek Ranch are the institutions with now proposed names.
School 36 which is located at 26906 Pine Mill Drive Katy TX is proposed to be named after retired educators Keiko Davidson. She spent 30 years out of her 35 year education career working in the Katy ISD system. She retired in June 2013 and was formerly principal at Hutsell Elementary School.
Campus Number 37 located at 5303 Flewellen Oaks Lane Fulshear TX is proposed to be named after the late James Randolf. Mr. Randolph began his Katy ISD career in 1996 and spent several years as a beloved PE teacher at Alexander Elementary School. I believe both of my stepsons are very familiar with Mr. Randolph and I understand he was a great guy and teacher. Mr. Randolf truly provided a great role model for all to follow.
A public forum will be held on February 4, 2014 beginning at 6 PM in the Katy ISD Board Room, located at 6301 S. Stadium Lane Katy TX 77493 to discuss the proposed names. Community residents are encouraged to attend this meeting and provide thoughts on these two proposed names.
Katy ISD names its new schools after educators who have taught in their system. I think this is a neat way to honor folks who have provided our children with so much of their life, time, energy and even money.
