School Song[edit]

'Rebel Pride'
Rebel pride and victory,
Unity as one.
Loyal fans will send us cheers,
Until the game is won.
Honoring thy colors bold,
The silver, white and blue.
For here we set our mark,
Rebel pride of Champlin Park,
Loyally we cheer for you.
Composed by CPHS band director, Steve Lyons. [18]
