School Naming Committees
We appreciate the community members who volunteered to serve on the naming committees for the new middle school and the new elementary school.
The school board selected names for our two new schools on April 18, 2018 from the short list of names submitted by each naming committee.
Des Moines Elementary School
Glacier Middle School
The work of each committee included community outreach, a public survey and discussions that resulted in short lists of three to five names submitted to the school board in late March 2018. The school board selected the names of the new facilities from the submitted lists, according to our district Naming Facilities Policy and Procedure. Schools in Highline must be named after people or geographic features.
