Front Porch: Lake Stevens district seeks name for new school

Name new school

The Lake Stevens School District is looking for a name for Elementary School No. 7, which is under construction. People can submit ideas at until Friday.

Names should represent the area and have some historical or geographic significance. They shouldn’t conflict with the names of other schools in the area. While the school may be named after a historical figure, it is not to be named after anyone still living. Officials plan to submit three to five names to the school board during its Nov. 9 meeting.
