RICHLAND, WA - A new elementary school in Richland is not close to being built physically, but the principal is already building its image.

He's putting together a team of local parents and educators to exchange ideas. He's new to the area but Robert Broecker says he loves what he's seen in the Richland School District and is excited to bring something new to the table.

The new school is just off of Keene Road in South Richland across from the new Yokes Fresh Market store. Broecker says construction is ongoing and should be done, next year.

"What'll differentiate this school from any other beautiful building is what's happening inside the classroom. The families that I've met in the are here have been extremely supportive of education, been warm and welcoming so it's an exciting opportunity for all of us I think," said Broecker.

The school still needs a name. The Richland School District is asking people to go to their website to find the form where name suggestions can be submitted. A “core team” will choose from the top nominated names for the school.
