Sherwood Park, AB. — Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is seeking further community input on naming its new school in Sherwood Park—a K-6 school being built in the Davidson Creek area and slated to open in fall 2018.

In April, EIPS collected name suggestions from the community for the new school. Using those suggestions, the Division now has a shortlist of possible names. Before a final decision is made, EIPS is inviting the community to participate in a brief online survey.


Survey opens: June 12
Survey deadline: June 28

Once the survey closes, EIPS Administration will review the feedback from the survey and recommend a final name to the Board of Trustees. The Board is expected to approve the name in August.


EIPS is one of Alberta’s largest school divisions, serving approximately 17,100 students in 42 schools. We are proud to be an integral part of our communities, including Sherwood Park, Fort Saskatchewan, Vegreville, Strathcona and Lamont counties and the western portion of the County of Minburn.
