Edmond Schools is seeking input from the public to help name its newest elementary school which will be built southwest of the intersection of NW 150th St and N. Pennsylvania Ave adjacent to Epworth Villa. The school is scheduled to open in 2021.
UPDATE: The deadline to submit names has passed.
The district is also planning to open Redbud Elementary at Douglas and Coffee Creek, east of I-35 in 2021. Both schools will help to offset the considerable growth in student population at district elementary schools in the north, northeast and southwest quadrants of the district.
School names should reflect one of the following criteria:
- A natural event, feature, or features
- Memorials in honor of a deceased national, state or community leader
- Historical sites or events
- Geographical locations
- Landmark significance
Individuals should submit their suggestions via Google Forms here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfddtTdswk8NGcZAqsy09PchYYAVDyOipVUTBEw7qV-hH1Mcw/viewform
Or, or individuals may have them emailed to them upon request by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Forms should be returned by mail to Price Brown, Executive Director of Elementary Education, EPS Administrative Center, 1001 W. Danforth, Edmond, Oklahoma 73003 and must be submitted by noon on Dec. 2.
A committee of patrons, teachers, and district personnel will research the submissions and recommend potential school names for Superintendent Bret Towne’s consideration. The Board of Education will then vote on the final name.
The new bond-funded school will be the nineteenth elementary school in the district.
