August 17, 2023 – Collinsville High School celebrated the first day of the 2023-24 school year with an early morning pep rally featured live on KMOV-St. Louis.
Shortly after 5:00 am, KMOV’s Matt Chambers was in the Kahok Hall of Fame where he talked to Superintendent Dr. Mark B. Skertich and representatives of the CHS StuCo.
At 6:00 am, the pep rally got underway in Fletcher Gymnasium with a loud, rousing rendition of the school fight song by the Marching Kahoks and the grand entrance of the 2023-24 Kahok Krazies running through the gym with spirit flags. Until 7:00 am, the CHS dance team, cheerleaders and color guard entertained the large crowd of students and staff who arrived at school nearly two hours before the start of the day.
Following the rally, students moved to the cafeteria for breakfast and on to the school day.
It was a LOUD/PROUD morning to be a Kahok!!!
