Dear Parents and Guardians,
There is still time left to name the new North Bay elementary school!
Near North District School Board’s (NNDSB) New North Bay Public School Naming Committee has received many thoughtful and creative names and rationales via this link to name the new elementary school in North Bay.
Slated to open in September 2023, the new elementary school will be located at 790 Norman Ave. in North Bay and will accommodate Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 students. It will be home to the Grade 5/6 Extended French Program.
Individuals or groups are invited to help name the new school in accordance with the following guidelines:
- the street on which the facility is located;
- the area which the facility serves;
- a geographical feature specific to Near North District School Board;
- wording that is supportive of the Board’s mission, vision and Multi-Year Strategic Plan, meets the best interests of the school’s students and is culturally responsive to the community.
Submissions should include reasoning for the name, background or history of the suggested name, and the submitter’s name, address, and email address. Please use this link to enter your submission. Submissions can also be dropped off in writing by 4 p.m. Feb. 27, 2023 to the attention of The New North Bay Public School Naming Committee, Near North District School Board Office, 963 Airport Rd., North Bay, ON.
