Fall Spirit Week came to a close on Friday, Oct. 30 with themes of “Dress-up/ Dress-down” for Cohort A and Halloween costumes for Cohort B. 

Due to coronavirus restrictions, the SGA came up with different events for the cohorts. The remote event was a pumpkin carving contest with a variety of prizes and the lunchtime event for the in-person students was a costume contest in which students entered to earn points for their grade.

Freshman Hannah Cohen of Little Silver experienced her first ever CHS Spirit Week during the pandemic. 

“I’ve been looking forward to spirit week since the moment I found out I got into CHS,” Cohen said. “It wasn’t exactly what I expected because of the circumstances obviously, but I still really enjoyed the week.” 

In addition to the planned events, the SGA also assigned each grade a theme for a mural. Teams were given 14 pieces of 24” by 36” poster board. Each student participating brought their artwork in on Friday to make the mural.

Sophomore council member Keegan Foy of Wall was in charge of organizing her class’s mural and had a difficult time trying to get her peers involved. 

“We were only able to complete 9 of the 14 pieces of paper, but I think it came together in the end,” Foy said. 

The final results were announced on Monday; the seniors came in first place with 506 points, followed by the juniors with 406 points, the freshmen with 337 points and the sophomores with 288 points.
