Griffin new mascot for Juniper Ridge


Juniper Ridge Community School, 640 24½ Road, has announced its new mascot and school colors that will be used for all grades at the school.

The “Griffin” is a mythical creature with the face, beak, talons and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion, a news release said.

“In its body, the griffin is blessed with the speed, flight, and penetrating vision of the eagle and the strength, courage, and majesty of the lion,” the release said.

“As JRCS teaches children, it is our hope they will be like a ‘flock’ of Griffins, displaying humility and courage as they pursue the true, the beautiful and the good in our community.”

The school colors are purple, black, beige and white, and T-shirts and sweatshirts will be available to order with the mascot displayed.
