District officials along with members of Pogue Construction and Corgan Architects joined in the ceremony to launch the beginning of Elementary School #3 in Argyle ISD. The future campus is located on 16 acres in the Canyon Falls community at the corner of Denton Creek Blvd. and Prairie Ridge Rd. in Flower Mound.
“This is an exciting day for the future of Argyle ISD,” said Dr. Telena Wright, Argyle ISD Superintendent. “The shoveling and turning of dirt today is the beginning of the construction of an elementary school that will provide instructional space for 850 students. We are very grateful for our community which approved the 2017 bond that made this campus possible.”
Elementary School #3 will be the sixth school campus in the district. It will serve grades pre-kindergarten through 5th grade and will offer Eagle students core academics, music, art, PE, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) and technology applications. All three elementary schools in Argyle ISD will shift to the PreK-5th grade configuration when the school opens in August 2022. The campus is scheduled to welcome Eagles students at the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year.
The new campus is part of the voter-approved $166 million Argyle ISD 2017 Bond package, which also included Argyle West Elementary. Argyle West opened to start the 2019-2020 school year. ES #3 will be designed very similar to West Elementary, which is located in the Harvest community.
“We are excited to break ground on our third elementary school and grateful for the Argyle ISD voters that passed the 2017 bond to make this school possible,” said Argyle ISD School Board President Sam Slaton. “The passing of the 2017 bond allows AISD to continue to meet the ever-increasing community growth needs as well as continue to provide our students with the best learning environment for their educational experience. We are grateful for the selfless efforts from our members of the bond information and bond oversight committees; their dedication to the success of this district is one of the many characteristics that help us continue to be the best school district in the State of Texas.”
This will be the second Argyle ISD campus located in Canyon Falls in Flower Mound. The new Argyle High School, which is transitioning from previously serving as Argyle Middle School, will open in August 2021 as part of Phase II in the 2017 bond.
