In preparation for the highly-anticipated homecoming football game and dance, the week of Sept. 11 is officially the 2017 homecoming spirit week.

Mickey Monday kicks off the event with people dressing up as Disney characters and then rolls onto Tourist Tuesday where students are encouraged to dress in Hawaiian shirts and flip-flops. Western Wednesday is up next with students dressing in rodeo attire and then as their favorite super hero or villain on Thrilling Thursday. The week is capped off by Football Friday where football spirit gear is encouraged along with items like mums and garters.

In addition to the fun and quirky outfits that will be seen throughout the school during that week, the homecoming pep rally will be held from six to eight pm Wednesday night at the CPHS football field.

The student council, who is organizing the spirit week and homecoming dance, highly encourage students of all grades to participate in the festivities as the event is a unique and interesting way to have a fun time at school.

“[The homecoming dance] gives people of all grades an opportunity to come to a fun and formal event with their peers and is a good way to kick off the start to the year,” student council member Carlie Dill said, “[Spirit week] welcomes the freshmen and is a great way to unify everyone at the school.”
