In October, 2006, the Rockingham County School Board voted to approve the construction of an elementary school on the Montevideo Middle School site, and to request funding for up to $16.2 million from the Board of Supervisors. In Feburary, 2007 the Board voted to approve a resolution which authorizes an $11.1 million loan application to the VPSA for the school. Later that month, the Board accepted the low bid from Nielson Builders, Inc. for the construction of the school. Construction began in March, 2007. The school is expected to open in August, 2008.
At the January 8, 2008 School Board meeting, Kenny Boyers was appointed as the first principal of Cub Run Elementary.
When students from Peak View, Lacey Spring, Pleasant Valley and McGaheysville Elementary Schools visited Cub Run Elementary School on May 23, 2008, they voted for their selection of a school mascot based on the top three student-nominated names. The mascot selected by a majority of rising Cub Run students was the Cubs.
