GISD Board Approves New Elementary Names

As our Godley community is aware, next school year we will be transitioning to three elementary campuses. To help lead the process of naming these schools, the District assembled a committee that consisted of community members, faculty, and staff. Using local policy to help guide their decisions, the group was able to narrow down on name recommendations that reflected and helped preserve our community’s rich history.


At tonight’s Godley ISD Board of Trustees meeting, the Godley ISD naming committee presented the board with the top three choices: 

  • R.B. Godley Elementary (current Godley Elementary)
  • Legacy Elementary (current Godley Intermediate 2-4)
  • Pleasant View Elementary (new elementary campus)

The names for the three future elementary campuses were approved unanimously. In the coming weeks, we look forward to diving deeper into the history behind each of the names chosen for our elementary campuses! These are very exciting and historical times for our District, and we are looking forward to seeing what our future holds.
