Panthers News · #BeTheLight Celebration


Cedar Grove High School will participate in honoring our Senior Class of 2020 by taking part in the #BeTheLight Celebration.

Beginning this Friday May 1st at 8:20 pm (20:20 in military time), Cedar Grove High School’s Athletic Complex will shine in honor of the Class of 2020.  The lights will shine for 20 minutes and 20 seconds every Friday night during the month of May.  Additionally, our scoreboard will display the score 20-20 along with the time remaining 20:20.   CGHS is proud to stand together with fellow high schools to celebrate our seniors and their contributions to our school and the Cedar Grove Community over the last four years.

How can students help? 

*** Please note that students are not permitted on the stadium grounds during this time of social distancing***

(1)  In addition to the stadium lights, we also ask all seniors each Friday night during the month of May to have their front porch light on or place a battery operated candle in their front window at 8:20 PM to symbolize that you are a member of the Class of 2020.

(2)  Freshman, Sophomores & Juniors we need your help!   Please support the seniors by getting your favorite noisemaker (cowbells, horns, whistles etc..) and make as much noise as possible at 8:20 PM to show your support for the Class of 2020.

(3)  Seniors this is for you!  Help us celebrate YOU ! Get your favorite noisemaker as well, and take a selfie picture or video celebrating YOURSELF and send your photo or video to Ms. Rubino at rubino.alexa@cgschools.org so we can post it on our Instagram account @cgpantherpride.

(4) A member of the Cedar Grove Police Department has graciously offered to video and take photos of our lit field which will be posted on our district website and on our school Instagram @cgpantherpride.  Once again students are not permitted on the stadium grounds during this time of social distancing. 

Let those Friday night lights shine brightly to bring our community together to recognize the CGHS Class of 2020!
