      Hi Katelyn, FLVS Flex does not have a mascot. But we have revealed the three new mascots for Florida Virtual Elementary, Middle, and High School.

          They should make a flvs flex mascot competition, don’t you think? That would really spark creativity in some of us. I’m a flex student also 🙂
