Houston, TX. — May 22, 2018 — Galena Park School District’s Cloverleaf Elementary held their ground breaking ceremony with community members and both former and current staff members present.

“We look back with nostalgia and forward with excitement as Cloverleaf Elementary students and staff celebrated the ground breaking. It is difficult for us to let go of such a historic part of the Galena Park ISD community, but we know the new building will continue the legacy of serving the families of the Cloverleaf neighborhood,” says Lee Brown, principal of Cloverleaf.

“Cloverleaf is so much more than a building. There is something truly special about the community, teachers and administration at Cloverleaf,” says Ofelia Garza, former Cloverleaf Principal. “It is about family… I know the legacy will remain for future generations, and they will maintain the family atmosphere which has existed since the original campus opened.”
