As Austin’s most international district, the North Lamar/Georgian Acres neighborhood plan contact team believes that every resident is a valued member of our community, deserves to be treated fairly and with respect, and that when some of our residents live in fear of contact with public officials it makes all of us less safe, and has a negative impact on our community.

Apertura del nuevo campus escolar / Opening of new school campus

“Change is inevitable. Transformation is a choice.” “El cambio es inevitable. La transformación es una elección”.

Principal Veronica Sharp led students, families, and neighbors from Georgian Acres and Highland neighborhoods  in celebration of TA Brown Elementary and Webb Primary coming together at a new campus.

La directora Veronica Sharp dirigió a estudiantes, familias y vecinos de los vecindarios de Georgian Acres y Highland para celebrar que TA Brown Elementary y Webb Primary se unan en un nuevo campus.

Webb Primary was housed in portables on the Webb MS campus for seven years. TA Brown has been in portables at Barrington for two years, while the old unsafe building was demolished and the new one planned and constructed. For most of the 500 students at the opening celebration, this was the first time they had attended school in a school building.

And what a building it is! The design features walls of windows for natural light and connection to the outdoors, flexible classrooms and collaboration spaces, and LEED silver energy efficiency.

Durante siete años, Webb Primary se alojó en edificios portátiles en el campus de Webb MS. TA Brown ha estado en portátiles en Barrington durante dos años, mientras que el antiguo edificio inseguro fue demolido y el nuevo planificado y construido. Para la mayoría de los 500 estudiantes en la celebración de apertura, esta fue la primera vez que asistieron a la escuela en un edificio escolar.

¡Y qué edificio es! El diseño presenta paredes de ventanas para luz natural y conexión al exterior, aulas flexibles y espacios de colaboración, y eficiencia energética LEED silver.
