BEND, OR -- Bend's new elementary school finally has a name.  The Bend-La Pine school board chose "Silver Rail Elementary" at Tuesday's meeting.  Silver Rail is still under construction in Southeast Bend and is slated to open in the fall.

 

"Silver Rail" beat out three other naming options, including "Horse Ridge" and "Homestead."  Another option, "Amelia Earhart Elementary," caused a bit of controversy with the Des Chutes Historical Museum after rumors surfaced that Earhart had ties to Bend.

 

Also last night, the school board named Shay Mikalson as their top choice for Superintendent.  
Mikalson is currently an assistant superintendent for the district and would take over when Ron Wilkinson retires, July first.
