Maize's five elementary schools now have official mascots

During the December regular monthly Maize Board of Education meeting, board members approved proposed elementary school mascots. Last semester, elementary school administrators engaged with students, staff members, and parents to identify new school mascots to further create school identities and build school pride.

Board members voted to approve the recommended mascots:

  • Maize Central Elementary School Mustangs
  • Maize Elementary School Panthers
  • Maize South Elementary School Wolves
  • Pray-Woodman Elementary School Pride (Lions)
  • Vermillion Elementary School Chameleons

Schools worked on a shared timeline within parameters to have their own unique selection process to identify their own school mascot. Future work may identify official school logos and colors for purposes of branding and school pride.
