Pittsboro, NC - The Chatham County Board of Education and a Name the School Committee is soliciting suggestions from staff, students, and the community as it goes through the process of naming the new elementary school currently being built in Siler City.

Individuals interested in offering recommendations should use the following criteria in helping identify possible names for the new building:

The school, which the district plans to open in the fall of 2007, will be located off Alston Bridge Road in Siler City.

Recommendations of names for the school are being accepted through Friday, February 10. There is a bilingual PDF form on the district website at (See attachments at the bottom of this page.); copies of the form are in schools and at the central office; and forms are available at the Chatham County United Chamber of Commerce in Siler City, the Wrenn Memorial Library in Siler City, WNCA radio in Siler City, and the Pittsboro Memorial Library in Pittsboro. Completed forms should be returned to one of two locations:
