Tyee Mascot Retirement & School Design Info Night

Former Tyee Totem logo and new Tyee Titan logo

July 21 Ceremony & Walk-through

Save the date! Help us retire the Totem mascot with Tyee families, staff, alumni, community members and Friends of Tyee on Thursday, July 21, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Tyee High School.

  • A presentation in the cafeteria will retire the Totem and introduce the Titan mascot. 
  • Learn about the new home for many of the Totem items, which will be on display at the Highline Heritage Museum later this year.
  • Hear from our Native Education Program staff about the state law directing this transition and the district process that was guided by input from the Muckleshoot Tribe.
  • Hear students’ thoughts behind the choice of their new mascot, with a nod to history, and join us in supporting their Tyee school pride into the future.
  • Tour the campus, including the library. (Update: Due to contractor availability for work inside the gymnasium, it will be closed during the event. We are working to display as many of the Totem items from the gym interior in another area for this event.)

See the New School Design & Learn About the November School Bond

See and ask questions about the new Tyee High School architectural design by Integrus Architecture, which will be used to construct a new school if Highline voters approve the next school bond on November 8, 2022. 

Event Information 

  • Thursday, July 21, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
