I personally like Piney Church Elementary. Drop the "Road". I think we need to steer away some from naming the schools after individuals. Just my opinion.

I COMPLETELY agree... drop the "Road" part and contructively name it "Piney Church Elementary". It not only steers away from individual names placed on many schools in Charles County but it also gives people an idea of the new school location when searching for its where abouts.
