Cardinal Craze week wrapped up at CHS last week with a flourish. In the week-long competition to win ‘The Rock’, the 8th graders proved victorious by a hair over the senior class who took second place and the grade 11 students who took third place. This is first time an 8th grade class has won The Rock and the second time the Class of 2022 has won The Rock.

Just as importantly as the CHS spirit that was on full display throughout the week, were some of the outcomes to benefit others. CHS was able to send off a truck load of supplies to Puerto Rico to help with hurricane relief. In addition, nine full carloads of non-perishable food items were dropped off by Dr. Kresse and a group of student volunteers to the Macedonia Food Pantry on Wednesday. These donations will help to sustain the food pantry throughout the winter as it assists families in need. This is largest donation CHS has ever made to the food pantry! The Macedonia community wishes to express that they are overwhelmed and grateful for the support from their neighbors at CHS. Thank you to all the students, staff and CHS families who helped to make Cardinal Craze week a success this year!
