Washington MS Mascot Update

  • Washington MS Lion PrideLions - Washington MS

    In 2017, a group of Washington Middle School students advocated for a mascot change, citing cultural relevance and appropriateness of their current school mascot. We began with community, parent, and student input by opening the process and collected over 20 suggestions for new mascots. A committee formed of parents, community members, students, and staff narrowed these suggestions to 5 possible mascots: Hornets, Wolverines, Lions, Revolutionaries, and Golden Eagles. After over 600 student votes, School Board presentations, and Superintendent approval, we are proud to announce that Washington Middle School is officially the home of the Lions!

    The fresh produce boxes contained 8-12 different types of produce from local and neighboring state farms. A special thanks to our local farmers; McIlrath Family Farms, Pacific Fresh Produce, and the Washington State Department of Agriculture. We also appreciate the staff support from Crafted Eatery & Single Hill for helping pack the boxes. Thank you for partnering together to provide nutritious local produce for our community!

The kits included coloring pages and mask making supplies. Students and/or parents can comment on any YSD #SafeCelebrations social media post with a picture of their coloring page or mask to be entered to win a prize!
