SD #25 Board of Trustees is seeking additional public feedback regarding the selection of a new mascot for Pocatello High School.

Please consider the top four (4) choices with the addition of a 5th and modified mascot: Pocatello Bison; Pocatello Phantoms; Pocatello Thunder with a Bison mascot; Pocatello Thunder with Thunder mascot; and Pocatello Mountain Lions. Participants are asked to evaluate each potential mascot based on criteria set by the mascot selection advisory committee, which consists of Pocatello High School alumni, teachers, coaches, parents and community members. The committee’s process also included participation from the PHS student body leadership.

This survey is designed to allow participants to evaluate each of the five finalists and recommend one based on that evaluation. The survey may be taken online or in-person at the School District 25 Education Center, 3115 Pole Line Road M-F from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The survey will be open from Wednesday, November 18 through Wednesday, December 2, 2020. The Board will review the survey feedback at a Work Session scheduled on December 8. At that time the Board will also consider putting the final mascot selection on the agenda for action at the Regular Board Meeting on December 15.
