School Board will decide on school names at Dec. 15 meeting

Chuck Kajer, Managing Editor

The New Prague Area School Board received a list of possible names for the two new elementary schools currently under construction, as well as new names for two existing buildings.

The list was presented by members of a naming task force at the board’s December 8 meeting. The district’s new policy on naming facilities calls for the board to choose from among these names or make its own decision. After hearing the presentations, board members decided to seek public input and make a decision at their December 15 meeting.

Three sets of names were submitted for the schools, One set was based on birds, one on geography and one on trees.

Under the bird theme, the New Market building would be called Eagle View Elementary, the current New Prague Primary building would be called Falcon Ridge Elementary and the new New Prague building would be Raven Stream Elementary.

The second option named the buildings (in the same order) Clover Path, Heritage Pond and Raven Stream, while the third option named them Oak View, Cedar Ridge and Birch Wood Elementary.

A separate task force presented three options for the current intermediate building, which will house the sixth grade annex, district offices, special services and community education. The options presented were Central Avenue Education Building, Philipp Creek Education Building and Generations Administration Center.

Bus times

During the open forum portion of the meeting, the board heard from Dan and Peg Koehnen, parents of two St. Wenceslaus School students. Their students are bused each morning to school. They were concerned with the time their children spend on the bus.
