    From the beginning, this school was referred to as the Atascocita Elementary, since it was the first school built in the Atascocita area.  

    Preliminary schematic designs were presented by the architectural firm of McKittrick, Drenna, Richardson, and Wallace.  An initial estimate put the cost of the school at $2, 605, 600. 

    A revised drawing of the school put the size of the building at 63,450 square feet, and at a lower construction costs.

    The district purchased a 10+ acre site in the Oaks of Atascocita neighborhood for the location of the school. The contract to clear the land was awarded in June 1978 to J. E. Lewis Construction for $9,950.

    The contract to build the school was awarded in October 1978 to Lee Rowe Construction.

    The Board approved a furniture bid for the school in March 1979 for $127,821.44. Progress was moving very slow on construction of the school, due to bad weather.
