Plattsburgh City School District Announces New Logos

We are "happy" to introduce the new mascot of the Plattsburgh City School District - Happy the Hornet!

While we are sad that Monty Bear and his friends, Buddy (at Bailey Avenue Elementary) and Jaggy the Jaguar (at Oak Street Elementary), are retiring - we are excited to have a new mascot that unites the five school buildings in the Plattsburgh City School District!
