PHARR – Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD (PSJA ISD) held a groundbreaking ceremony for Phase II additions and renovations of LBJ Middle School in Pharr on Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2021. 

Renovations to the campus were first completed in 2012 with Phase I of the project including demolishing almost the entire campus and replacing it with new facilities. Today, Phase II will create a new practice gym, cafeteria with a large production kitchen, and converting an existing gym into a fine arts complex.
