We have a name!!

Well if you have heard a rumor that we have a name for our school, it is correct! On Thursday night, the school committee unanimously voted to name our school the "Anne Bradstreet Early Childhood Center". Anne Bradstreet was a well known poet who we will all learn more about as this process of building the addition and preparing for the opening continues. An interesting fact to note is that everyone knows the school on Main St. was also named "Bradstreet School", but this was NOT named after Anne but instead was named after her husband. This early childhood center will be named after Anne, only the second school in North Andover to be named after a female!

At the December 7 School Committee meeting, the Committee announced its intention to name the new kindergarten building.  In compliance with the School Committee policy and procedure for Naming School Facilities, clerk Helen Pickard will chair a subcommittee to organize name suggestions and present a recommendation to the full School Committee for a vote.  

Community members who wish to propose a name should submit their suggestion in writing to by 3:00 pm on January 16, 2018. Please include a brief explanation as to why we should consider the name.

As per our policy, we will consider names with educational significance or inspiration, location/geographical names, names of distinguished leaders who will lend dignity and stature to the school facility or names that include significant or pertinent events.  We will update the community on progress at the School Committee meeting on February 8.  The subcommittee will present all names suggested, along with a recommendation for vote by the School Committee on March 1.
