  2. Students will have the opportunity to submit one group, class photo, with the teachers permission, in their first and second period classes of the class decked out in their best school spirit outfits.
  3. Your teacher will then email the picture to Mr. Clayton before 5th period, and the newspaper editors will vote on the best picture.
  4. The best class picture will be posted on The Roundup at and our twitter @chsroundup, and the winning class will get donuts delivered to their classroom the next morning during their class period.
