Prairie View Elementary and Middle School selects mascot

The E-8 school set to open for the 2017-2018 school year in Otsego has officially chosen a mascot, Principal Kari Sampson told parents and guardians April 19.

“We are now the Prairie View Hawks! Stay tuned for our school logo!” Sampson wrote in an email.

Earlier this month, Sampson announced the official colors of the school would be royal blue and white, with green incorporated into the school’s logo and mascot design.

The school will hold its first parent involvement meeting 6:45-8 p.m. May 2 at Prairie Center in Otsego. School leaders hope the group will provide valuable input for the school in the coming months and begin fundraising efforts, Sampson said. All parents are welcome to attend.

Further, kindergarten parents are invited to attend an informational meeting 6:30-7:20 p.m. May 16 at Rogers Elementary School. — Rachel Minske, Contributing Writer
