About Our School

  • Ginnings Elementary was built in 1968 and is known as one of the district’s “heritage schools” for its longstanding place in the community and even celebrated its 50th anniversary of serving Denton students. It is named after J.L. Ginnings, a local resident home builder whose family donated the land on which the campus stands.

    The staff at Ginnings has built a strong relationship with the families and businesses in its community through various programs that assist its students in and out of the classroom. Programs like Food Drive, Angel Tree and Clothes Closet help the economically disadvantaged students, while partnerships with local businesses and universities provide outlets for all students to learn, grow and be recognized for their achievements.

    Ginnings students have access to multiple forms of learning technology through computers, mobile devices and other applications as well as interactive displays in most classrooms to keep them engaged. That engagement also continues in the arts with a fifth-grade orchestra, an honors choir and award-winning art programs being popular on campus.

    The staff, students and families celebrate their differences and nationalities, allowing for various multicultural themes for typical school events like book fair, PTA meetings and fundraisers, while also allowing for special events like hot dog socials and technology-free nights where everyone feels like a part of the Ginnings family.
