This fall, a new elementary school will open in Woodbridge.
Called the “Prince William Parkway” Elementary School, the facility seeks to address overcrowding at several county schools.
Now, officials are looking to name the school, which will be located at 4060 Prince William Parkway, according to a release.
Earlier this week, the Prince William County School Board approved boundary changes that are a result of the school’s opening.
Name suggestions will be accepted by the “Prince William Parkway” Elementary School Naming Committee at an input session on January 24.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at Gar-Field High School in Woodbridge.
School Board Chairman Babur Lateef, and School Board members Lillie Jessie and Diane Raulston are on the committee, which will review names relating to geography, history and public figures.
Those interested in giving a suggestion should provide details about the name.
Ideas can be emailed to HalseySM@pwcs.edu, or mailed to the Office of Facilities Services — School Naming Committee, P.O. Box 389, Manassas, VA 20108.
Community members may also provide name recommendations, ask questions or offer feedback to the Office of Facilities Services by calling 703-791-7312.
The committee plans to present its suggestions to the School Board on February 6. The board is expected to vote on the name on February 20.
