An old proverb states, "It takes an entire village to raise a student section." Well, maybe not exactly but we can all agree that is definitely true in Charlotte! The student section at Charlotte High School, named the Flight Club, is one of the fastest growing clubs at CHS and undoubtedly the most spirited. Our goal is to support all of our athletes and spread Oriole Pride throughout our school and the Charlotte community as a whole! We are forever grateful for everything our community has done and Flight Club wouldn’t be nearly as successful without your unwavering support.
In December, Flight Club made a video (which can be viewed at charlottenet.org) and entered it into a competition, called "Battle Of The Fans" through the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA). We were selected as one of five finalists, but we're not done yet! On Feb 12th, MHSAA representatives will be visiting Charlotte’s Dome of Doom to see Flight Club in action. As students and members of this proud community, we ask you to join in the fun and our chance to become named the best student fans in Michigan! The festivities of February 12th, will start at 4:30pm, when all students are invited to a cookout in the high school lobby ahead of the evening basketball games. The Varsity girls play at 6:00pm and the Varsity boys at 7:30pm. We ask that you wear orange to the girls’ game and black for the boys’ game. So plan for 2 shirts!
The Flight Club will also be collecting bottled water to send to the students in Flint, Michigan suffering from contaminated water. Any students that bring a gallon or package of waters and their student ID will receive free admission to the basketball games. We encourage all of the community to bring a donation as well. Not only do we have the most spirited fans, but the most generous!
The evening will be a fun filled night for all. We hope to see you there to support our basketball teams and contribute to our goal of becoming the best fans in Michigan. Go Orioles! Oriole Pride!
