Next week marks a very special tradition at Corbett High School and is always one of my favorite times of the year as a teacher. The high school commons gets decked out with glittery red & black posters, students dress up in silly outfits for the spirit-themed days of the week and Friday’s home football game and dance gives students a chance to demonstrate their awesome Cardinal pride. So what does homecoming look like at Corbett? I’d like to share with you exactly that.
Our festivities kicked off last Thursday with an all-school assembly led by the leadership team to communicate with all students what they can expect for our exciting week at school. The band played, students modeled outfits for each spirit day in a mini-fashion-show and attendees were informed of upcoming activities. The Cardinal pride was running high!
