Update: September 2, 2020
Our Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) met last night to review the 900+ responses to our finalist survey. Thank you to all who provided their input. After much discussion, the PAC made a momentous decision for our Mascot and Colors:
Colors: Purple and Black
Mascot Rationale: Eagles reflects the community more so than the other top choices and was the overall favorite when reviewing the survey results.
Colors Rationale: Purple is a combination of red/blue which reflects Freedom Hill, purple reflects a purple heart and patriotic, and purple is majestic like in the song “America the Beautiful”.
Next Step: our school district's Communications Department will create three possible logos for the PAC to review and select. The goal is to have this completed by the end of September.
Update: August 6, 2020
Our Parent Advisory Committee met on August 4 to narrow down the Mascot choices. What an exciting group! Thank you to all who submitted ideas because you are helping to establish our school community. In this next survey you will have the opportunity to pick your top two (2) choices for the Mascot. You will notice coyotes is not one of the choices because a neighboring school has that mascot and the committee felt the duplication was too close us. Results of this survey will be reviewed by the committee on September 1 and the school colors will be coordinated with the Mascot at that time. This survey will close on: August 30, 2020. Thank you for your time as we work together to create an exceptional school.
Name Decision May 26, 2020: Michael Inskeep Elementary School
Attendance Zones Decision May 26, 2020
Parent Advisory Council created by August 2020 and first meeting was on August 4, 2020 to review mascot and color submissions. The committee narrowed down the list of responses to a Top 4 and sent out a 2nd survey to gather input on the 1st and 2nd choice. The committee will meet again on September 1, 2020.
The Parent Advisory Council will work on the process to determine the Mascot using parent and community input via an online survey in August and September.
