I would like to thank all of the students and parents that submitted names for consideration. I would also like to thank the wonderful PTA moms that joined me on the Naming Committee. As a Naming Committee we sifted through the submitted names, weighed pro and cons, and used consensus and voting procedures to decide on three potential names--Thunder Ridge, Skyview, and Hillside. Those names were submitted to the the Board of Education two weeks ago for their consideration. Tonight the Board of Education announced that our new school will officially be named Thunder Ridge Elementary!
The Special Needs school being built right next door has been named Horizon School.
The other new elementary school being built behind Wal-Mart has been dubbed Riverview Elementary.
