Trophies, costumes, sign-up sheets and a rubber chicken?
Columbia High School student groups, including teams, clubs, service organizations, and publications, showed their stuff last night at CHS in Action Night. Designed to showcase activities for the current eighth graders and their parents, the evening included dance, music, and Shakespeare presentations, as well as a Science Fair, fencing, and robotics demonstrations. The evening was hosted by the Student Council, whose members and advisors wore red shirts.
Tables lined the halls, staffed by students who run and belong to clubs and teams. They showed off their awards, photos of past events, and recruited new members.
One group actively seeking participants is the CHS Relay for Life team, which will participate in a June American Cancer Society event at West Orange High School.
The evening began with an a cappella performance from the Knights of Columbia. Check out the video.
And what was that rubber chicken for? The comedy troupe Friday Night Live featured it as part of their display, along with a tennis racket. This Patch editor wondered why.
"Why not?" mused a member of the troupe.
"Because there's something for everyone here at CHS," explained another student. "For everyone."
