about our school

DCThe new David Crockett Elementary School opened in August of 2017 as one of three new elementary schools and a renovated facility to serve Marshall ISD students in grades K-5. The project was part of the Legacy 2017 building program born out of the passage of a $109,200,000.00 bond issue approved by MISD voters in May 2015. Huckabee, Inc., served as the architect for the Legacy 2017 building program, with Sedalco serving as the general contractor for DCE Elementary. Project Manager for the Legacy 2017 building program was Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc. (LAN), of Houston, Texas. The new school was constructed on the site of the old David Crockett Elementary, which was closed following the 2016-2017 school year. The old building was demolished following the completion of the new school in late summer 2017.

The new Crockett was a consolidation of both the old Crockett and the old Robert E. Lee Elementary, which was the oldest existing elementary school in MISD when it was closed after the 2016-2017 school year. REL's students were consolidated into the new Crockett Elementary, and the REL campus was sold shortly thereafter.

In recognition of the long heritage of both campuses, the new Crockett includes areas that have been named to honor past educators and campus communities that make up the new school. The Charles Peden Administrative Offices are in honor of Mr. Charles Peden, who was the longest tenured principal at the old Crockett Elementary at 14 years (1968-82). The Gene Stinson Learning Center honors Mr. Gene Stinson, who served as principal at Robert E. Lee Elementary for 25 years (1971-96). The Coach Karen Young Gymnasium is named in honor of Karen Young, who served as P.E. instructor/coach at Crockett from 1986 until her retirement in May 2016. The new school's hallways pay honor to the campus communities that are represented in its history -- Dunbar Hallway, Robert E. Lee Hallway, East End Hallway and Sam Houston Hallway.
