New Key School Name: Comments Sought

New Key School Name: Comments Sought
APS has started the process for naming the new elementary school on the current site of the Key Immersion program. In the brainstorming session, the naming committee came up the following list of names.
  We would like LV community feedback on these names. What do you like? What do you not like? Do you have any concerns about any of the names? Do you have any other suggestions?

Please send your thoughts to elizabeth.ferrill@gmail.com before Fri, Jan 8.

The new elementary school needs a name because the Key Spanish/English Immersion program will be continuing to use “Key” in its name and it would be confusing to have two Arlington elementary schools with similar names.
