In the coming weeks, students, staff and community members will have the opportunity to weigh in on an issue that has created a lot of buzz in the community: Selecting school colors and mascot for the new Lapeer High School, starting in September 2014.
On Tuesday night, Lapeer Community Schools’ Secondary Planning Oversight Committee, made up of a diverse group from the school community, laid the groundwork for the process that will involve the entire community.
“From the start, we wanted this process to be an exciting way to get the community thinking about its future together,” said Lapeer Community Schools Superintendent Matt Wandrie. “This is one facet of the overall transition that we can have fun with, cultivate a little creativity in the community and get the ball rolling on one Lapeer.”
One major component of the process will be an online community survey that will provide the committee with suggestions that it will share with the Superintendent and Board of Education. The survey will go live on May 13 at LapeerSchools.org and will remain on the site through May 24. The survey is open to anyone in the community and can only be taken once.
It is anticipated that a public announcement of the decision will be made during the last week of school.
