New Nottingham Elementary becomes a reality as school staff tours the new campus



Nottingham Elementary teachers and staff recently took a guided tour throughout the new campus and had the opportunity to see new classes, the cafeteria and collaborative spaces. 

“We are so excited to tour the new Nottingham campus!” said Becky Hagan, Nottingham principal. “Everyone has worked very hard on this project and I am excited to see it all become a reality!” 

The new Nottingham Elementary is part of the 2017 Bond Program, approved by 80% of voters in Nov. 2017. The 2017 Bond Program continues the transformation of district facilities that began with the 2007 Bond Program. 

Guided by Travis Stanford, SBISD Associate Superintendent for Operations, Nottingham teachers and staff walked through the hallways of the new campus, which sits adjacent to the existing building. 

“We are thrilled to be able to walk the staff through Nottingham,” said Stanford. “We are excited to see all the great teaching that will happen here and are so thankful to the community for allowing us to do this work through the 2017 Bond Program.” 

The new campus brings an innovative design with a vibrant and bright style. The floor plans include learning pods and shared spaces that create a collaborative environment and promote student learning. Spring Branch ISD will celebrate the grand opening of the new Nottingham on Sept. 27.  

Michelle Murphy, Nottingham librarian, was filled with wonder as she walked through the library. Murphy explored the area and was excited to see the amount of space she would now have. 

“This library will allow us to have an outdoor garden and an outdoor space where we can collaborate and enjoy nature,” said Murphy. “I love the natural light and the smart use of space, I can’t wait to move into our new building!”
