Waconia Announces New School Name: Laketown Elementary

Waconia’s newest school facility has a name now: Laketown Elementary.

According to the Sun Patriot, people recently gathered for a ceremonial groundbreaking event to hear the announcement.

The school district received more than 300 name suggestion submissions and then it worked to bring that total down to just 10 contenders. The district chose Laketown Elementary to pay homage to Laketown Township.

“As we all know this has a little historical piece,” Waconia Superintendent Pat Divine said at the ceremony. “This is Laketown Township, we know that Laketown Township may not stay in existence forever, but we know at least the name will stay for a long time.”
