CVHS Student Council puts in many hours of preparation to ensure that old traditions are kept and new traditions created.

One of the most popular and anticipated traditions each year is Spirit Week/Homecoming. This year Spirit Week is Oct. 1 through 5. The theme for 2018 is “Home Sweet Homecoming.

Lauren Foster, Senior Class president shared, “From ‘Skittles Day’ to the Homecoming dance, students and staff are looking forward to the fun-filled week.”

On Monday, the excitement starts with the Senior Parade, Homecoming Pep Rally, “Skittles Day”, CVHS girl’s home volleyball game against Kingman and the Top Gun boys’ volleyball game. On “Skittles Day” each class dresses in the colors of their class. Freshmen are pink, sophomores are red, juniors are green and seniors are yellow.

On Tuesday, students will dress as “Tacky Tourists” and attend the powder-puff game at 7 p.m. where the “Glamour Guys” will compete at halftime. After the game students will be able to enjoy the bonfire.

Wednesday is “Home Versus Away” day where students will dress as their favorite duo. Students are encouraged to attend the boys’ soccer game against Rancho Solano Prep. at 4 p.m. before they attend the homecoming dance which will run from 7:30 until 10:30 p.m.

Thursday, “Cougar Pride” day, will include the homecoming pep rally to wrap up the week and promote the homecoming football game.

Later that afternoon the girls’ volleyball team will play against Mayer High School. The final event will be the CVHS homecoming football game versus Kingman which will take place at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5.

Come out to support our CVHS athletes on Friday and to hear our Homecoming Royal Court announced. To stay in the loop, Lauren Foster reminds students to, “Listen to the announcements or call Chino Valley High School with any questions.” Chino Valley students and community get ready to show your spirit and have a great Homecoming Week!
