Help Name the New Southwest Elementary School
15, 2021) Help choose the name of the new Southwest Elementary
School currently under construction on Sandy Porter Road.
The final three name recommendations to choose from are
Ayrsley Town Elementary/Academy
South Pine Elementary/Academy
You can also pick between navy/white and purple/white as school
colors. (The mascot comes later.)
School Name Survey
All votes are due by May 18, 2021 at 3 pm.
These names were chosen for the following reasons:
Ayrsley Town Elementary/Academy -- Proximity to Ayrsley Town
Dogwood Elementary/ Academy -- State flower, which symbolizes
growth, spring, new life, and strength; although the dogwood flower
is small and delicate looking it is actually quite tough. We are
growing strong leaders.
South Pine Elementary/Academy -- The North Carolina state tree
is the long leaf pine and we are located in the southern half of Charlotte.
Pine trees represent wisdom, longevity, and life,
The naming committee will recommend these three names to the Board
Of Education and provide the results of the survey. The members of the Board may choose one of those names
or select a name outside of these recommendations. For the CMS Board
Policy on the name of schools please click on the link:
