Names sought for new school

The search is underway to name the new elementary school in Mandan, and the school district is seeking suggestions from the public on what the name of the school will be.

Anyone who would like to place a submission can go online to the Mandan School District’s website at

The school district previously held similar open contests to name new buildings during the naming of the Brave Center and the former junior high, which was named the Great Plains Academy.

After all of the submissions are received, the school board will narrow the list down and then make their selection for the school.

The new kindergarten through fifth-grade elementary school will be located at the intersection of Lewis Road and 37th Avenue N.W.
