History of The Spirit of English
The Spirit of English is a mascot that the seniors create for the current juniors in the AP English Language and Composition course. The Spirit of English inspires and urges us to do our best all year. The mascot moves around the room to different locations to watch over students who need a little extra inspiration for the day. There have been 6 mascots; 3 of which there is no photo documentation. Below are the mascots from 2011 (foot) and 2012 (Poptart). This year we have a lovely bird that will remind us to take flight.
