California High School Celebrates Courtwarming
Wednesday, February 16, 2011
California High School celebrated Courtwarming the week of Feb. 7-11.
Although interrupted with a snow day on Wednesday, the various activities continued as scheduled. Each day, students, faculty and staff observed a different Spirit Day such as “Hat Day” or “Ugly Sweater Day.” Thursday was class color day when each of the separate classes wore a different color. Friday was traditionally “Spirit Day,” where the students dress in their Pinto red and blue.
Also, each class worked throughout the week on a banner that would hang in the gym during the game. The banner contest theme was “superheroes.” The junior class won third with a Batman & Joker design, the freshmen captured second with Spiderman and the seniors placed first with a Superman theme.
“The snow days the week prior to Courtwarming put us behind because the classes could not meet to plan banners and elect candidates,” said Jamie Johnston, student council sponsor. “Considering the complications, everything went pretty smoothly, and the banners turned out very well.”
Student council members and sponsors also organized a pep assembly Friday afternoon where various students from each class participated in games. The cheerleaders and dance squad performed. The dance squad routine involved male guest dancers, which was a hit with the crowd.
Senior Derek Brown said, “I enjoyed watching the guys perform with the dance squad.”
Lastly, members of both the Varsity boys and girls basketball teams were introduced and thanked the student body for their support throughout the season.
Students also elected a Courtwarming Queen and Princess. The Queen candidates were seniors Kelci Dampf, Tabatha Hoback and Jayme Reynolds. This year’s Princess Candidates were freshman Abby Lueckenotte, sophomore Cassi Thompson, and junior Holly Wolfrum. Kelci Dampf was crowned Queen, and Cassi Thompson was crowned Princess.
