Paperjack, Starr, Hillside: Elementary schools receive new names
New Richmond Wisconsin 127 South Knowles Avenue 54017

The New Richmond School Board voted Wednesday, May 7 on names for all three elementary schools in the District.

Frank Norton, principal of West Elementary, presented the top five names the elementary students chose for each building.

The Board voted to go with the elementary schoolers' suggestions. West Elementary will now be called Starr Elementary (this name is conditional on Norton's research of its origins in New Richmond to be certain it is a suitable name for an elementary school). West Elementary is located on Starr Avenue.

East Elementary School will be called Paperjack Elementary due to the Paperjack Creek running nearby.

The new school, sitting atop a hill, will be known as Hillside Elementary.

The Board unanimously adopted the new school names because the elementary school children helped in naming the schools.
