Principal Jensen's Updates
Every high school has their own homecoming traditions and depending on where you live and what school you go to, homecoming can mean a lot of different things. Here at CCHS, we are continuing to build traditions that will hopefully carry on for years to come.
Things kicked off on Tuesday with our annual Homecoming Assembly. Mr. Hunter from the UIAAA presented the Directors Cup Award. The Directors Cup is awarded each year to the top school in each class that demonstrates combined excellence in athletic, academic, and sportsmanship & student-leadership. Each category makes up a percentage toward a school’s total ranking. 1. Athletic (40%): The place or position a school team finishes in the state tournament. 2. Academic (40%): Varsity team GPA. 3. Sportsmanship & student-leadership (20%): Schools participation in UHSAA-sponsored sportsmanship and leadership initiatives.
During the assembly, students competing for the title of King and Queen, showcased their lip-syncing skills. Gabe Fankhouser and Emma Ware performed the Homecoming theme, To The Ends Of The Earth.
The dance will be Saturday, October 13th, right here in Charger Arena.
Our soccer team opened the State Tournament Tuesday afternoon at 4:00. The Chargers ended the season for the East Panthers with a 4-1 victory. Goals were scored by Kenli Coon (2), Kayla Milford, and Willow Collins.
The team traveled to Maple Mountain on Thursday for a second round matchup with the Golden Eagles. The Chargers pulled out the victory, 3-1, to advance to the state semi-finals. Goals were scored by Kenli Coon, Willow Collins, and Megan Astle. The Chargers now take on Skyline with the winner advancing to the State Championship. The game will be Tuesday at 11:00 at Juan Diego High School.
Also on Tuesday night, our CCHS Volleyball team swept Cottonwood. Varsity scores were: 25-20, 25-17, and 25-21.
Wednesday’s pep rally opened with the Powderpuff Championship. The red team coached by Danielle Dahle took home the hardware. Students competed as grade levels throughout the pep rally in various events. A great firework show and the burning of the CC culminated the evening.
Thursday was the first ever Charger Care Day. Every student and adult in the building took at least 30 minutes to help clean up our campus and surrounding community. A huge shout out to Royce Shelley for overseeing this project. Immediately after school a massive pizza and tailgating party ensued.
Thursday night the CCHS Chargers took the field against our rival, the Alta Hawks.
The team came out of the locker room pumped up and ready to battle. The Chargers came out on top 49-21. CCHS travels to Jordan on Wednesday, October 17th, to take on the Diggers with the Region Championship on the line. Starting Monday, tickets can be purchased in the main office.
Construction is well underway. Footings are dug, compacted and almost ready to be poured. The old entrances have been removed making way for the new wings.
Next week is fall break. There is no school on Thursday and Friday. I want to challenge the students to come back after fall break ready to finish up the first quarter strong. The end of the quarter is October 26th.
