Allentown School District School Solicits Community Submissions to Name New School
Posted on 12/20/2019

Construction on the new elementary school located on 12th and Gordon Street is rapidly progressing. As we prepare for the building to open in the fall of 2020, the Allentown School District is excited to mark this historic occasion by calling for community input on the future name of the building.

Naming a building or portion of a facility is something that takes a significant amount of consideration, and input from our community is vital. Students, staff, and community members are invited to use this form to propose a name for the new school. Submissions will be open between December and January.

Those wishing to submit a name for consideration can do so using this form: The submission window has now closed.   

The four-story building will contain state of the art classrooms allowing the district to provide students space to learn and play. Integrated technology will support personalized learning and instruction at all levels. Community space will enable the District to connect deeply with families and the neighborhood surrounding the school. The community area will host a food pantry, an adult learning room, an independent pre-school program, and has the potential to offer health services.

More information can be found about the full process in ASD policy 701.1, Naming/Renaming District Facilities. Board approval will be required for the naming or renaming of all District facilities, including schools or distinct portions thereof, in accordance with board policy 701.1. This policy is available in its entirety on our district website:
