It’s official: our newest school will be named North Star Elementary School!

Tonight, Tuesday, February 12, Bend-La Pine Schools' Board of Directors selected the name North Star out of three finalists for the new elementary school in north-central Bend, which will open to students in the fall.

North Star is the brightest star in the Little Dipper constellation and is known for being a reliable

navigational tool. This star has been known to symbolize freedom, constancy, stability, focus and the internal compass that guides someone’s life.
