New Moniker Unveiled

Welcome to Bear Country! On Wednesday, January 26, 2022 we unveiled our new moniker and mascot, the Bears, with a surprise celebration on campus for our students, faculty and staff. A special and dynamic video announced the evolution, Root 'Bear' Floats, lots of new swag, a photo booth and class pictures in new t-shirts, and flag raising ceremony were part of the day as we move forward into a new chapter in our school's history.
Bears was chosen after conducting a several months long community input and evaluation process that resulted in approximately 500 unique names submitted for consideration. Core to the input gathering and selection process was engaging and honoring the voices of the BBHS student body. Bears was the No. 1 student suggestion and the No. 1 suggestion across all other stakeholder groups, making it the leading moniker suggestion overall by a wide margin. Bears also met the key naming criteria identified through the community input survey:
  • A moniker starting with the letter “B” 
  • Is an animal
  • Has a connection to the Pacific Northwest
  • Is unique among peer high schools
