Waxpool Will Be the Piranhas

The Piranhas will be the mascot of the new Waxpool Elementary, scheduled to open next August.

Waxpool Principal Michael Pellegrino polled students at Mill Run, Moorefield Station and Hillside elementary schools to determine what the new school’s mascot would be. (The final selection came down to Wolves and Piranhas.)

The Piranhas were a landslide winner with 63 percent of the 572 votes cast.
