Leo the Lion has long been the mascot of Lore Elementary School. Leo can be seen throughout Lore School, and he is often in attendance at community events. In fact, the word leo means lion in Latin. Throughout history, the lion has been seen as a symbol of strength and courage, and what is most unique about lions is the fact that they live in a group, or pride. They live within their group, helping each other to survive, and a lion’s roar is what marks its territory, what makes it “home”. Much like lions, the students of Lore School are proud to live as a group each day, helping each other to succeed and excel, roaring to mark our territory and make our strong, positive, powerful voices heard in the community around us.
This year, the students of Lore School will continue to honor the history of Leo the Lion and celebrate his powerful character traits through our ROAR initiative. The acronym ROAR stands for Respect, Ownership, Achievement, Responsibility, the four expectations we will celebrate and honor throughout the school year. Like lions, we will work together, stand with pride, and roar to mark our territory. We will continue to grow as individuals and as a school community, and we will continue to make Lore School a place where we work to make the world a better place.
