Principal Carrie Pierce poses by three logo options for Curtis Elementary

At its first community meeting ever on Wednesday, April 25, Principal Carrie Pierce of Lizzie Curtis Elementary School revealed the new school’s colors and mascot. When the campus officially opens next school year, students will wear navy blue, silver and white, and they will be called the Lizzie Curtis Legends.

Mrs. Pierce explained that the mascot comes from the namesake of the school, Lizzie Curtis, and her status as the first teacher in the area, becoming legendary in her own right. Prior to Haslet Elementary School opening, Ms. Curtis taught students in their homes and later in a one-room school known as Blue Mound School.

“Lizzie Curtis left a legendary mark upon our community as the first teacher in Haslet, and we are proud to bear her name,” she wrote in a letter provided to meeting attendees. “We strive to follow her legacy of learning at Curtis Elementary School as we educate the whole child through academic, social and emotional learning.”

The meeting was held at Schluter Elementary School, which served a dual purpose: both schools will feed into the new Adams Middle School located nearby, and Schluter shares the same school layout as Curtis.

Attendees met the school’s teachers and voted for one of three options for the school’s logo, all of which include a star and the word “Legends,” and two of which integrate the letter “C.” Mrs. Pierce plans to inform families of the winning choice soon. Additionally, the school will launch its campus website in the coming weeks.

Curtis Elementary School is slated to open at the start of the 2018-19 school year in the Revelstoke subdivision, located north of U.S. Highway 287, east of F.M. 156 and south of Bonds Ranch Road. It was designed by Stantec and is currently being constructed by Balfour Beatty.
