Communications
The student-led committee, made up of North Middle School and Menomonee Falls High School students, has selected their four finalist mascot names which include: Phoenix, Ravens, Titans, and Falcons. Students worked together to create the "why" behind each of their choices and created a poster that will be displayed at all six SDMF schools. The students also discussed creating a video to share with elementary students.

The week of March 9, 2020, students from the committee will visit both the middle school and high school to present the four names to students. Students will vote on March 13, 2020. The mascot name chosen will be announced on March 13, 2020.
