Name the Building

As we move into the next couple of months, the building we purchased downtown will undergo some renovation. I would like to ask you to help us name the building. The third floor of the building will be used for teacher professional learning. The second floor of the building will be used for Lenoir City Schools business offices, and the first floor of the building will focus on community, student, and parent activities. With all of these activities going on in the building, I envision it being a center of activity. I know that some of you will have some great suggestions about a name for the building. So, please share with me your thoughts on a name for it.

We will start renovation of the second and third floors on Monday, March 21. The target date for completion of is June 5. We will wait to complete renovation of the first floor until the bank vacates the first floor sometime later this year. I would like to hear your ideas about how to use the space for students, families and community activities. Some suggestions shared so far include a reading room for birth to school-age children, an art gallery for our student's work, open access for student internet access, and student/adult entrepreneur classes.

I look forward to hearing your ideas on both 1) a name for the building, and 2) ideas for uses for the first floor.
