Before the consolidation, the nickname for the Mohall school district was the Yellowjackets.

Climate

This climatic region is typified by large seasonal temperature differences, with warm to hot (and often humid) summers and cold (sometimes severely cold) winters. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Mohall has a humid continental climate, abbreviated "Dfb" on climate maps.[12] Mohall has a surprising amount of seasonal lag for a location so far inland, more akin to what one would see in New England than in the Great Plains. The hottest month is August and the coldest month is January, and February and March are the months where the all-time record lows occurred.
