New SISD School Named Cactus Trails Elementary School, Mascot will be Diamondbacks

The Socorro Independent School District Board of Trustees approved the name of the district’s newest elementary school: Cactus Trails Elementary School.

The district’s 49th campus is being built in the Pebble Hills area and will accommodate about 800 elementary students. The new campus will serve the rapidly expanding east side of Team SISD and alleviate James P. Butler Elementary School, which now overflows students to other schools in the area.

The $28.4 million facility is scheduled to be open for the 2019-2020 school year.

Leslie Thomas, formerly the principal of Jane A. Hambric School, will be the principal of Cactus Trails Elementary School.

Trustees and Superintendent Espinoza also approved the school mascot and colors. The mascot will be diamondbacks and the school colors will be gray, teal and white.

Trustees voted at the regular school board meeting on November 13, 2018.
