Members of the freshmen class compete in a Kahoot trivia game on Monday, Oct. 26. This was the first lunchtime event of Fall Spirit Week, with questions ranging from chemistry to literature to CHS facts. Monday’s event was
supposed to be a socially-distanced outdoor challenge, but inclement weather caused a change of plans. Both in-school and at home students participated in the event. See the backspread for more pictures and the final scores.
