Cherry Creek soliciting name suggestions for new elementary school

585

AURORA | Cherry Creek Schools is soliciting suggestions from the public on what to name its newest elementary school.

Currently labeled Elementary School #45, the school is being constructed with money from the $150 million bond increase passed by voters in the 2020 election. It will help reduce overcrowding in the southeast area of the district, and will likely be the last school the district builds.

The school is scheduled to open for the 2022-2023 school year and will be located in the Blackstone neighborhood of Aurora on S. Blackstone Parkway. Construction began in May. 

Through Jan. 24, community members can submit ideas for the school’s name and mascot through an online form. A final decision will be made by the school board in the spring.
