Elkridge, Name Your New Elementary School

The school system wants input from the Elkridge community.

Construction on Ducketts Lane has commenced and now school officials are  in naming the new elementary school before it opens in fall 2013.

What would you name the new school? Tell us in the comments. 

These are suggested references, according to the Board of Education's naming policy, which states: "All schools shall be named for geographic terms related to areas of the county served."

  • Streets
  • Water bodies
  • Neighborhoods
  • Landforms
  • Community identity

Ducketts Lane Elementary School or Duckey's Run Elementary School

Patapsco River Elementary School. So much history with the river.

Patapsco River would be nice -- but there is already a Patapsco Middle School in Howard County as well as a Patapsco Elementary Middle School in Baltimore City. The confusion by adding this one as Patapsco River Elementary probably wouldn't be worth it.

"ABF Elementary" following the criteria above that "All schools shall be named for geographic terms". That is what the children will be seeing and hearing when in the classroom or outside at recess.

There is another community that borders the property called Glen Cove Estates. What about Glen Cove Elementary School?
