“We are grateful to the community for submitting so many great name suggestions for this new elementary school,” Committee Chairman Frank Perez said in a statement released by the district. “It was truly difficult to narrow it down to only 10 semi-finalists. The School Naming Committee has a tough job ahead to pick between these great remaining candidates. It is truly an honor for all of us on the committee to be a part of something this meaningful, and greatly appreciate the community’s input on this major decision.”
