CHS: Where Dreams Come True

Julianne Sackett

Thursday, April 21 marked the fourth day of Spirit Week with ‘Disney Day’. Mickey. Minnie Mouse, countless Pixar characters and all things Disney filled the halls of CHS. Students committed to dress for the Disney theme and participated in the fourth event of the week to earn points for their grade: Cupcake Wars.

Sophomore Alice Nathenson of Long Branch used this spirit week theme as a way to have fun with friends.

“A  group of my friends and I all decided to be the different Disney characters together.” Nathanson said. “It was fun getting to dress up as a group.”

During lunch, SGA set up for the challenge of the day: Cupcake Wars. Each class provided a display of cupcakes that followed a theme. The four cupcake presentations were judged on presentation and taste-tested.

The freshmen made an arrangement in honor of Monsters Inc., while the sophomores dedicated their display to ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’.  The junior class chose to display a cupcake world inspired by Walt Disney World, and the seniors presented ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas.’

Freshman Grace Treshock of Monmouth Beach worked on her grade’s cupcake display.

“I made about 70 cupcakes, it took about six and a half hours, but I think it was worth it,” Treshock said. “Some people even went out of their way to tell me how much they liked them. I think we had a good start as freshman and we’re all really excited to do it again next year.”

The final results of Cupcakes Wars gave the junior class first place, seniors second place, freshmen in third and sophomores in fourth place.

Friday’s spirit week theme will be ‘Retro Day’ and will host the annual Lip Sync.
