Help Lethbridge School District No. 51 name our new westside middle school

Lethbridge School District No. 51’s Board of Trustees is seeking community participation in the process to name the new westside middle school currently under construction southwest of Dr. Probe Elementary School. Naming of the new school, anticipated to open in September of 2018, is a major milestone in the project. Once named, the new middle school will become part of the city’s fabric for the next 50-100 years, or more.

Suggested names may honour individuals, geographic landmarks or historic events. Submissions should include a reason (150 words maximum) for a recommended name.

Submissions can be made by filling out the School Naming Submission Form, and sending it to Garrett Simmons at

Submissions can also be made online, by filling out this form

The deadline for submissions is December 1, 2017.

A committee will review the submissions and later in December, will submit a short list of names to be considered by the Board of Trustees. The School Board will announce the name of the school at the December 19, 2017 meeting.
