As I drove by Kingwood Middle School this afternoon, sprinklers were sprinkling, grass was growing and the construction equipment was gone. All that remained were two workmen from a landscaping crew packing up their equipment. There may be small jobs yet to do. For instance, will the athletic field have football goal posts?
But I think we can safely move this project into the win column. In three years, it has gone from “distant dream” to “architectural gem” and “community showcase.”
By the start of school in three weeks, Kingwood Middle School should be fully functional – including the athletic fields and new stormwater retention basins that it never had before. See below.

Job Well Done
Congratulations to Humble ISD staff, Superintendent Elizabeth Fagan, School Board, and contractors. Job well done!
This is a great example of how new construction can reduce flood risk…when people care.
