New Red Deer school needs a name

A new public elementary school in east Red Deer needs a name.

Red Deer Public School District board decided this week to strike a committee to recommend a name for the school that will open in Timberlands in September 2014.

Construction is underway on the kindergarten to Grade 5 school at 290 Timothy Drive. The 12-classroom school will hold 500 students, with options for doubling its population by adding 12 more relocatable classrooms.

It’s being built with 11 other schools in a $288-million provincial government private-public partnership.

The City of Red Deer contributed $450,000 towards the capital cost so the building could house Red Deer Public Library’s newest branch.
