My kids were selecting schools to send our Great Mail Race letters to Friday. We used schoolbug.org to find them. I was amazed at some of the great names out there. A lot, of course, are named after people or the area, but one really stood out for me, IXL Elementary in Kansas. I am not ashamed to say I spent a minute trying to figure out what the name meant (maybe having a class of 24 in a computer lab with only 17 working computers and about 16 kids who had no idea how to use the Internet helped with the confusion!) Finally it hit me, IXL = I Excel. How cool to name your school something like that! I love the idea of the name guiding the school.
