Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) have approved the name of their new public school.
 
Sherwood Park's latest K-6 school will be called Davidson Creek Elementary.
 
“Given the public input and the fact the school is located in the Davidson Creek neighbourhood, the board felt Davidson Creek Elementary was by far the most fitting name,” said Trina Boymook, board chair of EIPS. “It gives the school a community identity and is immediately recognizable for students, families and residents.”
 
All names submitted were reviewed by a naming committee made up of senior administrators, the incoming principal and community members.
 
“We want to thank everyone who provided valuable suggestions and feedback on the name for our new school.”
 
Davidson Creek Elementary is scheduled to open in the fall of 2018.
