Add your voice: Name selection for Boise-Eliot/Humboldt Elementary School.

Parents, school staff, and district representatives invite all members of our Boise, Eliot, and Humboldt neighborhoods to participate in a conversation for the selection of an official name for our local public Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade school, currently known as Boise-Eliot/Humboldt Elementary School. All members of the communities; parents and non-parents, housing providers, social service providers, business operators, and residents are all welcome to join the conversation by attending the next two Site Council meetings. All of these meetings are open to the public. Site Council Meetings happen on the second Wednesday of the month. The next two meetings are October 8th and November 12th, 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm in the Boise-Eliot/Humboldt School Library.

Also a larger, community gathering is being planned for early December to discuss the name selection. We want to engage and inform all our neighbors of the history and current events surrounding the name selection. We are asking people to use their voices, express their thoughts, and share their histories in these neighborhoods and with the original schools that now form an integrated, educational home for our children. Please attend the Site Council Meetings in order to participate and learn more.

Your voice is important and your input critical. If you are unable to attend a Site Council Meeting, email your thoughts or concerns to April Reda, the Principal’s Secretary, Please include how we can best communicate information to you. Alternatively, you can mail or hand deliver a letter or note directly to the school:
