“SPIRIT FRIDAY” RECAP
“Spirit Friday” was one for the books! Thanks to DECA for the Pre-Pre Game Party with music, donuts and Wolf gear before school. First hours competed for “Most Spirited” wearing school colors and beach-themed clothing. StuCo continued the celebration during lunch with a DJ and dance party. Finally, during 6th hour, the Wolf Pack Marching Band played the CHS fight song throughout the halls. To top it all off, Chandler beat Red Mountain 42-14 under Friday night lights. Great job, Wolves!
