Aug. 21, 2012- As summer dwindles down, the Klein ISD is ready to open its 28th elementary campus in Zwink Elementary, located at 22200 Frassati Way, Spring, Texas 77389. The new school is a part of the 2008 Bond project that was devoted to address growth, renovations, safety and security, and technology in the district.
The zebra mascot for the campus was voted by students earlier in the year, and fits the exciting and unique culture Jenny McGown, campus principal, has built already. Zwink’s motto is “High Expectations…High Support!,” which she explained isn’t just for the students, but for the whole community.
“We have high expectations for ourselves and everyone, including parents, students and staff members,” McGown said. “Support has to be given by all to ensure success, and here at Zwink we are focused on having this at the core of our accomplishments.”
Zwink encompasses 125,000 square feet and was built to meet the standards of a Texas Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) Verified campus. It is the first building with the new design by PBK architects, which contains seven classrooms grouped into separate wings per grade level, and is first in the district to have enclosed elementary classrooms for the students. Zwink is the second Klein ISD campus to be built to the TX-CHPS requirements and is the first constructed from start to finish under these standards.
