New school names: Clear Falls and Bayside
There's still a clear theme for the naming of high schools in the Clear Creek school district.
During its meeting last night, the school board approved the name of Clear Falls High School for the district's seventh high school, which will open in August 2010. The $88 million campus is being built in the district's Education Village in League City.
Trustees chose Clear Falls High over options like Clear Tide and Clear Harbor, district spokeswoman Elaina Polsen said. A naming committee had recommended the name of Clear Falls, she said.
The new name keeps intact the district's tradition of its high schools having Clear as the first word and the second word as a body of water.
At the meeting, trustee Ann Hammond said she liked the name of Clear Falls because falls keeps with the district's trend of the second word of its high schools' names being one syllable, Polsen said.
During its meeting last night, the school board also approved the name of Bayside Intermediate School for the district's 10th intermediate school. It too is being built in the district's Education Village and will open in August 2010.
The school board also considered the names of Harborside and Bayshore before deciding on Bayside, Polsen said. It was chosen because of the new school's proximity to Galveston Bay, she said.
