The Homecoming season is upon us. In just a couple of weeks, the most exhilarating part of the fall semester will be here for all CHS students to enjoy. There will be lots of fun events and themed days here in the halls of CHS, and you wouldn’t want to be left out.

One of the best traditions during the Homecoming festivities is the spirit days. You get to dress up according the countless themed spirit days. One day, you can dress up in your favorite jersey, and then the next day you could dress up as your future career or your favorite movie character. There are lots of spirit days for everyone to enjoy throughout the homecoming week.

Next up on the list for things to do during the homecoming season is the spirit and spike event on Wednesday. Due to lack of participation in previous years, the previously known hike and spike is now spirit and spike. Watch your classmates battle it out for class supremacy on the volleyball court as the different grade levels go head to head for the championship. For those of you that have signed up to participate in the event, make sure to go to practices that will be held during the next couple of weeks. Overall, it will be a fun event for everyone to come and witness.

On Friday, before the big game, there will be a huge pep rally, where we will introduce the class attendants and Homecoming queen candidates, as well as have classmates participate in the many class relay races. If you want to sign up for any of these races, make sure to talk to Mrs. Neville to participate.

Finally, the Homecoming game will take place at 7 PM against the Lebanon Tigers. The game will be exciting to watch, as many of us are hoping that the Athenians can get a win against their rivals. During halftime, the homecoming queen will be announced. Will it be Sarah Chalmers, Alyssa Myers, Kora Hutchison, or Mia Stadler? After the game, the homecoming festivities will not stop. There will be a dance in the commons right after the game, and all students can get into the game for free if they wear their homecoming shirts.

Make sure to come support your classmates during the entirety of next week and help show that CHS has the best school spirit in the conference.
