Little did the visionaries know that their small town would blossom into a thriving community of more than 17,000 people. The current Katy Elementary campus was built in 1965, renovated in 1989, and again in 1995. Today, students play on the same location as the original playground and the first schoolhouse bell hangs in the main entrance of the current campus.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">"Today's paw prints are tomorrow's legacy," said Superintendent Lance Hindt during the ceremony where past generations of students and staff members were present. Among those in the crowd was 92-year-old Melvin Jordan who recalls riding on horseback with his brothers to and from school as a first grader. Currently, there are 11 students attending Katy Elementary who are 5<sup>th</sup> and 6<sup>th</sup> generation members of the original class of Katy Tigers!</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><a href="https://www.facebook.com/pg/Katy-ISD-113148448705253/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1637174009636015">Pictures of Katy Elementary Historical Event</a> </p></div>|
