School on Eagle Mountain

The Abbotsford School District is now accepting submissions from the public for the name of the future elementary school on Eagle Mountain. Submissions should include the name and contact information of the person or group making the suggestion and a rationale for the suggested name. Submissions close June 8th, 2021.

As per Board Policy 21, the following criteria must be considered when submitting a name for school district facilities/property: 

  • 2.1 The Board will approve facility names based on notable Canadian and international figures (eg. humanitarians, historians, government leaders, people involved in such fields as sports, sciences or the arts) or for people or places important to the local community or geographic area in which the facility is located.
  • 2.2 Wherever possible, if the building is to be named in honour of a person, the consent of the individual will be obtained. If it is to be named posthumously, except for a person of distinction, the close surviving relatives should approve.
  • 2.3 Whenever appropriate, the Board may consider a specific naming recognition for part of a facility created by a significant donation to the facility’s cost.

As suggested by the 2021 Naming Committee, Indigenous and/or Halq’eméylem names will also be considered within the criteria considerations.

Submissions can also be submitted in writing to the Secretary-Treasurer’s office at 2790 Tims Street, Abbotsford, BC, V2T 4M7.
