Our New Tiger Needs A Name
On Friday, September 11th we will be posting and sending home information related to a “Name Our Tiger Contest". Students, staff, parents, and community members will have the opportunity to submit possible names for our new Tiger mascot. You will find he looks a lot different as he has been working out over the summer! Names can be submitted via an envelope that will be placed in each school building office, by sending a message on our district Facebook page, or via an email sent to our district email address at email@example.com. Or, you can submit by commenting on Can the Tan - VHS DECA Facebook page.
We have been working with DECA students and Mrs. Lehman to get this project off and running, as part of a project these students will be working on throughout the year. Names will be collected starting Friday through next Thursday (September 17th). The three students, a few staff members, and a couple selected community members/parents, will help to narrow the list of possible names down to only three.
Starting September 18th, a penny war will be held in each building and out in the community (see video for more information). The penny war will help us to determine which name will be the name we give to our new Tiger mascot. Pennies will be collected until Thursday, September 24th. Per Dr. Ryerson, the money collected as part of the penny war will go towards building up our Tiger Pride Roar Store and assisting other educational and athletic/extra-curricular programs in the future. Penny war money will be counted (like votes being counted). Our Tiger will be presented with his new name during the Homecoming 2015 football game halftime presentation. Also, one lucky person who submits a name could have their name drawn to win a Tiger Pride Roar Store Fan Pack!
The students have worked very hard on a video to provide information about the contest. If you are an elementary teacher or VMS teacher, please try to show the video to your homeroom class either this Friday or Monday if possible. The video will be shown to high school students during lunch on Monday.
