Voting for Homecoming King and Queen is done online, opening at the end of the pep rally and will close at 6 p.m.

Float building for our classes will continue at various homes on island. The Homecoming parade, open to the community, will travel northbound on Orange Avenue from Adella to Seventh Street, beginning at 3:30 p.m., with rolling closure as the parade passes.The best location for viewing the parade is on the northbound sidewalks and the median of Orange Avenue. The parade will be escorted by our Coronado Police Department and will begin with Coronado Unified School District (CUSD) administrators and school board followed by city leadership, CHS NJROTC, Coronado Fire Department’s Little Mac truck, the Islander football team and coaches and the CHS band. After the band, each class float and members, beginning with the freshmen, ending with the seniors, will proceed down the parade route. Floats will follow the 2019 Homecoming theme of “Under the Sea”. The 12 members of our court will be riding in vehicles in between the floats.

The Homecoming game kicks off at 6:30 p.m. at Niedermeyer Field, entrances on Sixth Street and Seventh Street. Come watch our Islander football team take on Crawford. The king and queen will be revealed during our halftime show.

    A completely interesting solution that not everyone could expect, but it was partially ready for this and shows the importance of these types of works for students and how quickly they can write them.
