Nominate a Name for the New Elementary School

What do you think the new elementary school should be named? 
The community was invited to submit ideas for naming Elementary School #6, which is currently under construction to open next fall of 2016. From November 9 - December 6, all were invited to submit a nomination. And, people could submit more that one name suggestion, pertaining to the following nomination criteria:
  • Nominated names should be known and significant to the people in the District.
  • Names submitted should not conflict with the names of the other schools in the District and area.
  • The use of names of any person should be avoided.
The survey is now closed.

Timeline for the naming process:
  • November 9- December 6 – Open nominations are welcomed from families, staff, and the community. Submissions will be received via an online survey, plus hard copy forms will be available at each school and the District Office.
