Charlotte High School will be celebrating homecoming the week of September 21st-September 26th, and like last year, is excited to involve the community. The week will kick off on Sunday, September 21st from 1-3 pm as the classes and the teachers decorate the windows of the businesses downtown.
Afterwards, the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, which has been instrumental in helping to plan the downtown events, will host a hot dog picnic for the students. Each class has a block, and throughout the week, community members can vote on which blocks they like best by making a donation to the class’s chosen charity. The class that collects the most money for their charity will win points in the school spirit competition. The participating businesses, including the ones that are housing the collection boxes, are as follows (at press time; more businesses may be added):
Capping off the week and the celebration will be a parade through the decorated downtown. It will begin at 5:00 pm on Friday, September 26th, and it will run from the old junior high school to Cochran Avenue, and then north to the courthouse square. Then, at 7:00 pm, the football game will kick off against Jackson Parma Western. This is a great opportunity to show your Oriole Pride; please come out and support CHS and the Charlotte community!
