  • District Seeks Help from Residents to Name New Elementary School 

    The Platte County R-3 School District will be asking district residents for name suggestions for the new Kindergarten through 5th Grade Elementary School currently being built in Platte City. The school is located east of Fourth Street/N Highway and south of Emmy Lane, on what is known as the “Duncan Property.” The building is scheduled to open for the 2016-17 school year.

    Starting July 15, 2015, PCR-3 residents will be invited to submit name suggestions by filling out a quick online form which will be linked to the district’s website (www. plattecountyschooldistrict.com) under “Announcements,” or by filling out a suggestion form at any PCR-3 school. Suggestions should include the proposed name and why the name was recommended. Board Policy FF provides guidelines on the process for naming new facilities.

    District residents will have the opportunity to submit name suggestions through August 23. Then a board-appointed committee consisting of community members, students, and staff will meet to narrow the suggested names and recommend a “short list” for consideration by the Board of Education at the September Board of Education meeting on September 17, 2015. The Board will make the final decision on the name of the new elementary building.
