The Lee County School District has released six finalists for the name of the newly constructed East District elementary school in Lehigh Acres.

The school, currently under construction by J Elementary, will begin construction this spring along Sunrise Avenue in Lehigh Acres, right next to the new Lehigh Acres Middle School. The district says the school will open to students in August 2023.

Here are the six names that have been selected to the final round of the school:

  • Amanecer . Elementary School
  • Roberto Clemente Elementary School
  • Thomas Edison Elementary School
  • Gerald Gould Primary School
  • Lee Ratner Elementary School
  • Sunrise Elementary School

A second survey is available for the community to vote on which name they would like to choose for the school. You have until 6 p.m. on Thursday, February 10, to vote. You can do so by multiply here.

The Lee County School District provided some background information on the names they selected as finalists.

Amanecer means sunrise in Spanish, and the school is located on Sunrise Blvd. Roberto Clemente is a League Baseball player who trained with the Pittsburgh Pirates at Fort Myers. Thomas Edison was America’s greatest inventor with a winter home in Fort Myers. Gerald Gould was the first president of Lehigh Corp., the company that developed Lehigh Acres. Lee Ratner partnered with Lehigh Corp to develop his farm into Lehigh Acres. Sunrise is the name of the street where the new school is located.

Once the second survey is complete, the same committee that reviewed the initial submissions will review the results and recommend names to the School Board for approval on February 22.

A vote to officially name J Elementary is expected at the March 8 meeting.
