MHS mascot ideas from Elementary kids

Students in Janet Cary's third-grade classroom at Oak Grove Elementary have written letters and designed new t-shirts for a new mascot at Montrose High School. Their suggestions are Western Slope animals, from black bears to mountain goats. 

As the mascot committees are meeting for the second time this week to discuss concrete discussions for the mascot replacement, a third-grade classroom at Oak Grove Elementary School has brainstormed ideas of their own for the new Montrose High School mascot.

“As a teacher, we’re always looking for opportunities for the students to have some authentic, purposeful writing. When I saw that they were looking for community input for the new mascot, I thought that that would be a really good fit for the students,” classroom teacher Janet Cary said.
