  • Thursday: Throwback Day (Choose your favorite decade and dress accordingly. Ex: 50s greaser, 70s hippie, 80s icon, 90s teen)
  • Friday: Cardinal Spirit Day, of course! (Dress in all your cardinal gear or the school colors of red, black, and white. You can be as creative as you want!)

On Friday, October 21st, there will be a pep rally at 1 p.m. in the high school gym. Guaranteed to be filled with fun competition and CHS spirit! Following the pep rally later that night, there will be a Varsity football game vs. Chase County at 6 p.m.
