Each of the schools in the Northeast School Corporation will now be the green and white thunder birds and be named Northeast Elementary, Middle or High School.

The changes come after a vote to close Union High School and Dugger Elementary.

The school board hopes the changes will unite the students.

Northeast Middle School Principal JT Roberts says the adjustments have come easy for teachers, "I'm calling it almost a little chaotic but it's also kind of exciting at the same time, because there's so many new things that are on board. We've never had a middle school before."

Northeast students return to school on August 5th.
