Congratulations to Castleton Elementary School's Carl Cougar for being crowned champion of the first Slate Valley Mascot Madness competition! Superintendent Brooke Olsen-Farrell presented the honors to Carl this morning. The trophy was designed and created by one of our Middle School students, Deshawn Ingram, who used both the 3D printer and Glowforge during his Design Class with Mr. VanDerKern. Carl pulled ahead in the year long competition during the month of April, when in one week he attended 5 family lunch events. This busy week launched him to the front, passing Wally Wildcat of Orwell Village School. Thank you to all of our mascots (Wally Wildcat, Benson Bear, Carl Cougar, FHGS Falcon and FHUMHS Slater) for their fun competitiveness and good sportmanship! Until next year...
