Cheerleaders and Homecoming
Cheerleaders and Homecoming

Many people are focused on the numerous sports and activities that occur during the week of homecoming, but few recognize the cheerleaders. The pressure of being a cheerleader during the entire month of homecoming is very high. They devote numerous hours of hard work to raise the CPHS student’s spirits and bring them entertaining events dedicated to the week of homecoming. Because they hold the title of cheerleader, they are expected to be extra-spirited during homecoming week and to participate in the themed spirit days throughout the entire week. The cheerleaders must also perform at both of the homecoming assemblies, creating and preforming an entire dance routine for the pep assembly, putting stress on them to not just learn the moves to the dance, but the stunts and timing of the entire routine. Along with their own activities, the cheerleaders are responsible for the organization of Powder Puff, the game where girls play flag football. They must find a date that works for the whole school, referees, and other people to help do important jobs in the game. They must also attend the game and help there by collecting money, running errands, and mingling with the crowd. In addition to the activities they plan and participate in, the cheerleaders are responsible for the sales of their bracelet fundraiser that brings awareness to the big topics of autism, suicide, and cancer. Although the cheerleaders are hardly recognized, they hold great responsibility during homecoming and gladly do it with a smile.
