Participate in Naming the Agnews Schools

From September 15 to October 15, we are surveying our community for your school name ideas. We encourage you to submit as many names as you’d like for the committee and Board of Trustees’ consideration.

Submit Your Ideas

Name Our Schools Online Form

In preparation for opening the elementary and middle schools, this fall we begin the process to name all three schools on the Agnews campus. The Board of Trustees will select a name for each school after seeking input from the community. That is where you come in! 

Contribute your ideas through October 15 through the Name Our Schools Online Form.

A board-approved committee with student, parent, community, teacher, classified staff, and school and district administrator representatives will review, research, and consider name options during October and November. In late October, the committee will poll the community on the top names being considered before making their final recommendation to the Board of Trustees in November. The poll will be posted on our website and we hope you participate in that as well.

We also invite you to attend an important, informational meeting with Superintendent Stella Kemp, Elementary School Principal Shehnaz Wadhwania, and Middle School Principal Dawnel Sonntag to learn more about the status of our Agnews campus. Please feel free to attend any one of these sessions for a full project update and to share your feedback.

The meetings are planned for:

  • September 18, 6- 7 p.m. at Mayne Elementary School, Multipurpose Room
  • September 19, 6- 7 p.m. at Montague Elementary School, Multipurpose Room
  • September 25, 6- 7 p.m. at Hughes Elementary School, Multipurpose Room

Stay up to date with timelines, enrollment, and project updates on the Agnews webpages and visit our website after December 13 to view the announcement of the newly named schools.
