School pride truly embodies the students of Chalmette High School during their annual Owl Week festivities - a tradition that encourages friendly competition among the class cohorts to see which group truly deserves the school’s coveted spirit stick.
The week-long celebration of school spirit includes themed dress-up days, a sign painting competition among the classes, and culminates with a school-wide pep rally in which the senior athletes are honored, the Homecoming Court is announced, and the spirit stick is pridefully procured by one spirited class.
This year, the senior class and freshman class tied to win the sign painting competition, something Principal Wayne Warner said has never happened before in the school’s history.
“The judges just could not decide on one clear winner,” he said. “And so we decided on a tie between seniors and freshmen, who both did an outstanding job.”
At the pep rally, following chants, cheers, and performances by the cheerleaders, Charmers, and CHS Band, the senior class of 2020 was awarded the spirit stick.
Also at the pep rally, this year’s Homecoming Court was announced. The court includes Queen Lina Abdellatif and eight maids: Madison Bastoe, Imani Brown, Logan Dusang, Izabella Garcia, Katie Jovel, Hailey Melerine, Adaline Palmisano, Madison Pleming.
Homecoming festivities are slated for November 8-9, 2019.
