• Logo Redesign. SG Rockets logo

    In December 2022, we announced we are redesigning the Spring Grove Area School District logo to better embody the Rocket spirit in our schools and community. We will still be the "Rockets," but with a fresh look for our logo.

    Staff, students, parents/guardians, and community members will be a part of the redesign process in various ways. We are partnering with Jostens to help us through the process. Once the new logo design is finalized by the committee, it will be announced to the community. The new logo will be phased in over time throughout our schools and campuses as things need to be replaced, repainted, refurbished, etc. 

    We look forward to keeping you updated on our progress and engaging you in our efforts.

Our Progress

  • Community Survey

    The Logo Redesign Committee, comprised of staff, parents, students, and alumni, held its first meeting in early January 2023. Our first action was to gain community input on our future branding through a community survey. The survey was open from January 16th through January 25th. Thank you to everyone who submitted responses!

    Next Step

    In February, Jostens will meet with the Logo Redesign Committee to discuss the community survey results. Your survey responses and input from the committee will help us better develop our school identity and move forward with a vision for the new logo. That vision will guide the Jostens graphic designers in developing new designs for our logo. 

Logo and Mascot History

    • The current SG Rockets logo was designed by former Community Relations Coordinator Lisa Smith in the late 90s.

    • The Rocket mascot came to fruition in 1949 courtesy of a student competition to determine a mascot for the basketball team. Lindy (Miller) Uffleman, a freshman at the time, submitted ROCKET as the mascot, and she won.

    • Thank goodness for her winning submission....skunks and teddy bears were also submitted.

    • The 1952 yearbook was the first high school yearbook to mention the Rockets.

    • The 1953 yearbook prominently featured the Rockets and various images of rockets.
