Washington Island School held a pep rally earlier this month to introduce their new mascot. The school nicknamed the Bucks had been operating without one. But, to the excitement of the roughly 80 students, that all changed. Washington Island Superintendent Mati Palm-Leis describes the birth of the new mascot.
Palm-Leis and the school are currently conducting a search to hire a qualified Math teacher. He said that the pool of applicants has been very small, because of the uniqueness of living on Washington Island.
