The Vote is in!

The Givens Community has selected our new mascot and it is…… Ha, you thought we were going to share it. Join us on January 26th for the big reveal (information below).


Our students, led by our student committee, worked together to select a mascot that will represent our school starting in the 2021-2022 school year. We started with about 20 nominations and narrowed it down to 6 choices on the ballot. We spent a lot of time learning about various animals and how they interact with other animals and their habitats. This helped us select the options that would represent our school well. 


We shared the ballot and video with those students that would be voting and students campaigned for the one they wanted to win. Check out some of the cool posters they made. 



We held or election and there were 2 choices that rose to the top. We can’t wait to share them with you on January 26th at 5:30 pm. Join us on Zoom!  We will post the reveal video after our reveal. See you soon!


Our Student Committee also had the opportunity to work with Mr. Jake Simon, a graphic designer, and a Givens parent. He told us all about how he works to tell stories and explain ideas with pictures, shapes,  and colors and showed us how we do the same. He told us about all sorts of cool jobs artists use their skills in. Finally, he shared with us some important tips to remember when selecting our mascot and logo designs and utilized our feedback to start creating our new logo for our school. We enjoyed Mr.Simon and appreciated his words, “No one else is exactly like you, so anything you create is special and important.” 


Mr. Simon and Ms. Cook, our Givens Art Teacher, will be collaborating with us to design our mascot and logo graphics. There will be a sneak peek on January 26th.
