Ilchester Elementary is name of school set to open next fall

November 23, 1995|By Howard Libit | Howard Libit,SUN STAFF

Howard County's newest elementary school finally has a name -- Ilchester Elementary School.

The county school board unanimously approved the name Tuesday night without comment, apparently agreeing with a committee of parents and school officials that Ilchester Elementary is the best name.

The school is scheduled to open next fall. It is being built on Ilchester Road near the Trinity School in Ellicott City, and it will relieve crowding at other elementary schools in the northeastern portion of the county.

The naming committee rejected other suggested names, including Ilchester Woods, Patapsco, Patapsco River and Strawberry Fields.

At a public hearing Nov. 9, no one testified against the name Ilchester Elementary, and only one person -- a member of the naming committee -- testified in favor of it.
