Spirit Week was off to a great start with the Powder Puff football game on Sunday. The seniors won 8-0, with their only touchdown coming early in the game. They were able to score on a two-point conversion thanks to Stillman, but those eight were the only points scored — by either team — for the rest of the game.

Immediately after the game, the cheerleaders put on a quick performance. Then, the bonfire — and Homecoming Week — officially started.

On Monday, Central students showed their love for the fashion of the past. Many students wore eighties clothes, but some went as far back as ancient Greece!


Tuesday–Country Day

For Country Day, students and staff wore plaid and camouflage in order to mimic our neighbors to the south. All day, the hallways were swirling with country accents.


Wednesday–Character Day

Almost every year at Central, Character Day makes its way into Spirit Week. This year was no exception, as it is always very popular with the student body and Central staff.

For Jerz-Day, students showed love for their favorite professional sports teams, or ones that they had played for. The most popular team was the Chicago Blackhawks.


Friday–Class Color Day

For the final day of Spirit Week, freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors wore their class’ designated colors — white, grey, black, and maroon, respectively — and were ready to cheer on the Maroons as they took on the Centennial Chargers!
