The new, modernized $25 million campus was funded by the 2017 bond program. According to AISD, “The school was one of the district’s first to introduce two-way dual language education – fitting because the school’s namesake, George Sánchez, was a pioneer in bilingual education.” Friday, April 22, 8:30 a.m. parade, 9:30 a.m. grand opening ceremony, Sánchez Elementary, 73 San Marcos St.
