What should the Pasco school district name its new elementary school?



The Pasco County school district wants recommendations for the name of its newest elementary school, scheduled to open in the fall.

Located across Mansfield Boulevard from John Long Middle School in Wesley Chapel, the under-construction campus currently is referred to as Elementary W. The School Board aims to give it a real name in March.

It is accepting proposals through Feb. 29. District rules allow for using peoples' names, but if they are a district employee or elected official, they must have been dead or out of office at least two years.

Have an idea? Send it, along with a brief explanation, to district spokeswoman Linda Cobbe via email with the subject line "Elementary W," or send by mail to Linda Cobbe, Communications & Government Relations Dept., 7227 Land O' Lakes Blvd., Land O' Lakes, FL 34638.

Anyone have something more creative than Wiregrass Elementary? Let's hear them.
