School officials sought suggestions in naming the newest Gardner-Edgerton School District elementary and middle schools. The names in contention for the schools will be announced sometime this week.
The district has set up two email addresses for suggestions. Officials will compile the suggestions and principles, staff, students and parents pared down the lists for presentation to the district’s planning committee on Feb. 26. The committee will recommend two or three different names to the school board on March 11.
According to board policy, new school names shall be descriptive of the geographical area in which the school is located and shall not be representative of a single group, individual or subdivision.
