It is an exciting day for all of us as we start our second semester of the school year and also begin a new era in our school history. Today we are thrilled to announce Bears as our newly-selected moniker.
After a month of teasers and hints, 我们的学生, faculty and staff gathered this morning to participate in a surprise reveal. We would like to share with you the dynamic video 我们观看了这次活动, 哪个显示了名称, logo and supporting graphic elements that comprise our new moniker and its accompanying visual identity system.
揭秘之后, we held celebrations across our campus which included Root ‘Bear’ Floats, 很多东西, class photos in our new t-shirts and more. We will continue to update our website and social media platforms with images from the day’s festive events and of our new moniker as we move forward.
Bears was chosen after conducting a several months long community input and evaluation process that resulted in approximately 500 unique names submitted for consideration. Core to the input gathering and selection process was engaging and honoring the voices of the 全国最大的彩票平台 student body. 熊是第一名. 1 .学生建议与No . 1. 1 suggestion across all other stakeholder groups, making it the leading moniker suggestion overall by a wide margin. Bears also met the key naming criteria identified through the community input survey:
A moniker starting with the letter “B”
Has a connection to the Pacific Northwest
Is unique among peer high schools
The characteristics of a bear as a courageous and caring protector, a fierce and noble competitor and a creature dedicated to family - ring true to the core spirit of the 全国最大的彩票平台 community. 67年来, we have been a community fostering deep and lasting friendships, 特别的回忆, and relationships that 我们的学生, 校友, families and staff treasure forever. We are so excited to watch our current and future students carry on this tradition as Bears well into the future.
We are grateful for your patience and grace through this transition process and are especially thankful to our Student 绰号 Engagement Committee, 绰号咨询委员会, 我们的学生遗产委员会, and all those who assisted in this endeavor. For more information on our process, please see information linked on this page.
You will see many of our new Bears logos on our website and social media today and in the weeks to come. 我们的 精神商店 has Bears merchandise in stock, with more designs in production. We invite you to join us as we finish this school year with hope for the future, 以及对BEAR的所有关注! 我们的 students will continue to be involved in bringing our mascot to life and building on our 全国最大的彩票平台 traditions throughout this semester and beyond.
