Competitions round out the homecoming activities with a door decorating contest teachers can decorate their doors with CL spirit. Judging will take place Wednesday.  Each year during homecoming week, there also is a competition between classes. The competition calculates percentage of participation, and the class with the highest percentage of participation has the opportunity to treat themselves to Pizza Ranch during a predetermined date.  In order to enjoy Pizza Ranch, students must participate in at least two dress up days and also have attended Homecoming Olympics. Throughout the week we have competitions to see who dressed up the best for prizes that the local businesses have donated to the school.

The dress-up days are as follows: 

Monday - Pajama Day

Tuesday - Gender Bender Day 

Wednesday - VSCO Girl Day

Thursday - Safari Day

Friday - Purple and Gold Day
