LTISD administration has requested the help of the community in picking a name and mascot for the school located on Bee Creek Road. Rough Hollow Elementary and Bee Creek Elementary are among the considered school names. Mascot suggestions included the Rough Hollow Rough Riders and Bee Creek Rangers.
A total of 729 community members participated in the survey that took place on the online platform Thoughtexchange, which was made available on Sept. 3. The district also distributed newsletters, emails, flyers and social media posts.
Community members were able to provide feedback using Thoughtexchange, which allowed users to rate and score different school name options. Rough Hollow Elementary was the highest-rated name.
Elementary School No. 7 is scheduled to open in August 2020 following the large scale construction project, which is on track, according to Robert Winovitch, director of facilities and construction.
