The Lancaster County school district is looking for feedback from residents on a name, mascot and colors for a new elementary school. Today is the last chance to share suggestions.
A survey the district sent out on Jan. 8 closes at midnight tonight.
Voters approved in March a $199 million school bond that includes money for a new elementary school and high school in the fast-growing Indian Land area.
Superintendent Gene Moore said in March that the elementary school – expected to serve about 970 students – will take about two years to complete. Plans call for adapting an existing school design.

The district naming committee will begin considering the survey feedback later this month.
The committee hopes to propose a school name, mascot and colors for the new elementary school to the Lancaster County school board during its Feb. 20 meeting, according to the school district.
The district hopes to finalize a mascot design by March.
