Campus TraditionsOur Colors - Blue and GoldLamar Eagles - Our MascotLamar's mascot was decided by a contest many years ago. A little boy won with his suggestion of an eagle. The Lamar Eagle was born! There was an eagle painted on the cafeteria wall during Mr. Morales time as principal. Mrs. Rosales added an eagle for the gym wall. We have eagles in our display cases. There is also an eagle banner in the hallway by the second grade wing from an Odyssey of the Mind Competition.
