For the second year in a row, CHS and Student Council has shaped a homecoming week focused on raising funds for charity and highlighting important causes.  Spirit week days highlight the causes with Monday as Support Children's Charities Day (Make a Wish) - wear blue; Tuesday, Support our Armed Forces day (USO) - wear green; Wednesday, Support Domestic Animal Charities Day (Humane Society) - wear blue; Thursday, Support Wildlife Charities (National Geographic) - wear yellow; Friday, Support CHS - wear maroon & gold.

To further highlight the spirit days and theme, Student Council is again forgoing the traditional homecoming float for a unique project focused on charity and community - Homecoming Playhouses.  Each of the five playhouses will be constructed by the CHS Building Trades Program.  Funding for each building has come from sponsorship by local businesses.

Students and staff will provide the decorative design for each house based on a selected charity. Houses will then be showcased to the community during the Homecoming Parade and before the Homecoming football game on September 13th. Houses will be placed up for auction on eBay with 100% of the proceeds of the auction going for the corresponding charity.
