• W.M. Green Elementary School, known by the community as "FWISD's Hidden Treasure" was opened in 1959. The school was named for former FWISD Superintendent William Marvin Green.

    Excerpts from a 1980 essay entitled, "History of W.M. Green" (author Unknown):

    "On December 7, 1959, W. M. Green Elementary School opened its doors to welcome its first group of children, all of whom had previously attended classes at Mitchell Boulevard and Glen Park Elementary Schools."

    "In a rural setting on a large campus surrounded by oak trees, the building, designed by the architectural firm of Wilson, Patterson, Sowden, Dunlap, and Epperly, was built with sixteen classrooms, a cafeteria, library, auditorium, and offices for the principal, secretary, and nurse.  In recent years three temporary buildings for classrooms and a physical education activity building have been added."

    "During the first years the enrollment was small with one class for each of six grades.  In 1966 Village Creek School was closed and those children were sent to Green.  The sixth grade was moved to Forest Oak Middle School in 1969 and state-supported kindergarten classes were added in 1971." 

    "The school, named for Fort Worth superintendent William H. Green, has had only four principals in its twenty year history:  Joseph B. McGee, Evelyn Strong, Earl Nance, and the present principal (in 1980), Curtis Savannah."

    "W.M. Green has grown to its present enrollment (in 1980) of 529 students and twenty something classroom teachers with an ESAA resource teacher and special teachers in reading, speech therapy, and special education."

    "Students in the near future can look forward to the added comfort of air-conditioning and carpeted classrooms.  Also included in plans for expansion is an estimated growth in the population of the prairie dog village which is located north of the school.  These little creatures have provided much enjoyment for the children of W.M. Green Elementary School."

Hello. I'm Nanedra Golding, one of the assistant principals at W. M. Green. With 17 years of experience, I have seen a lot of changes in the educational platform. Although the demands and expectations have continuously shifted, our focus has not - children. One of my main strengths is building relationships. I strive to form a connection with every staff member, student, and parent that I come in contact with. Although it may not always be easy, it is truly necessary. As quoted by John Maxwell, "Students don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."
