Williams Elementary School was built in 1975 and has been kept up to maintain the modern and cared-for look, said a school official.

The school has a separate gymnasium used for physical education classes and assemblies, and has recently added new heating and air conditioning system.

The classrooms have computers wired for Internet access, and the school has a full computer lab, with 28 new computers provided by a grant.

Williams Elementary School prides itself on its parental participation. Its students' parents are involved in the parent teacher association meetings, fund-raisers, and weekly and monthly school activities, according to a school representative.

The school sponsors an annual picnic, and hosts amusing activities like dress-up days, such as hat day, 50's day, pajama day and twin day. Students participate in events like the Circle of Champions recognition assemblies, the Veteran's Day assembly, the U-Can-Share food drive, an annual book fair and the Texas Independence Day Celebration.

The school's fifth grade Science Camp in Oklahoma is a high point for many students, a spokesperson said. Other school events include Principal of the Day, a spelling bee, a school-wide read-a-thon and a Science Fair.

Williams Elementary School is a magnet school that focuses on real-world experience. The facility has an in-school bank, a post office, a bookstore, a candy store, a television station and a journalism department. The array of classes provides exciting opportunities to students who participate in the school-based businesses.

Older students run the businesses after going through the application and interview process, and student leadership is stressed at Williams Elementary School.
