!!Rank your favorite School names from the list of Semi-Finalist in this survey.!!
Name: Community name submissions have been narrowed down to semi-finalists (rank your favorites in the link above). The School Naming Committee will consider the semi-finalists in a public meeting on November 7, at 5:30 p.m. in the Board Room at the main administration building at 425 E Ninth St., Reno. At this meeting, the semi-finalists may be narrowed down to three finalists for the WCSD Board of Trustees to pick from. Learn more about school naming here. [side note: previous finalist names that were not picked for the final school name automatically become semi-finalists for all future schools – that’s why you see names like “Sun Valley” on the list]
