SssstuCo wrapped up Spirit Week today after a week of dress-up, games on the patio, searches for Colonel Reginald (the Spirit Snake), raffle prizes provided by our Parent Ambassadors & Athletic Boosters, and a lot of smiles! HUGE thanks to Student Council for their leadership and energy toward this event! Finley from Ms. Huddy's Animal Science class showed her spirit, too!

Band Notes

Congratulations to the CRHS Percussion Ensemble on once again having a great competition weekend! This was our first entry into the CWEA circuit and we scored a 92.25, which is the highest score given to ANY percussion section in the last 5 years! Receiving this score (and at the 1st competition in the CWEA season) is a major accomplishment! Congratulations! Here is a video of their most recent performance.
