FALL BAND CONCERT
Chandler High's Bands performed in concert last week in front of appreciative fans in the Chandler Center for the Arts. The Jazz Ensemble, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, and Symphonic Band each performed a variety of numbers ranging from “Hip to be Square” to “Encanto.” The bands are directed by Mr. Carlos Aguero and Mr. Steven Quintana.
Chandler High's Company Theatre went on tour with "Bookends!" last week. They traveled to local elementary schools "acting out" children's favorite stories. On September 11th and 12th, they performed The Ugly Duckling, Winnie the Pooh, The Cat in the Hat, If I Ran the Zoo, and Curious George for K-3rd grade audiences. Next semester they will perform for 4-6th graders promoting the love for reading!
“THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE”
Summer camp. The memories. The s’mores. The campfire. The ghost stories.
Dani’s out in the middle of the woods at night, alone, without a flashlight. She meets three girls from another camp, and the new friends tell ghost stories to pass the time.
After each of their stories comes to life onstage, only one story remains to be told – a story none of them saw coming.
Come see Chandler High Theatre's production of The Bottom of the Lake on September 19th, 20th, and 21st at 7:00pm in the Bogle Theater. Tickets are $7. You don’t want to miss it!
SUICIDE PREVENTION WEEK
The CHS Counseling Department, with the help of AVID and Student Council students, helped support suicide prevention and awareness last week with a number of lunchtime activities including karaoke, “Get Connected” warm fuzzies, “Stick Up for Yourself” poster, “Sharing Your Confetti of Kindness” and “Commit to be a Helping Hand to Others.”
CHS is hosting “Teen Lifeline Parent Info Night” tomorrow, Tuesday, Sept. 19th at 5:30pm in the Media Center. Please join us!

NHS BLOOD DRIVE
On Tuesday, September 12th, the Chandler High School National Honor Society, in conjunction with United Blood Services, hosted a very successful blood drive.
Here are CHS’s numbers from the drive:
- 45 successful blood donations - goal was 39 (115% of goal!)
- 52 total blood components donated - goal was 45 (115% of goal!)
- 20 more people signed in at the drive and were deferred
Donors who have a mobile phone number in their donor record will receive a text when their generous donation is on its way to a hospital patient!
There were over 100 volunteer hours in three weeks leading up to the drive, and on blood drive day alone, there were 60 student volunteers working the drive, running passes, checking in students, and providing TLC to the donors. Countless students brought in refreshments for donors, created posters, and recruited for this drive. Wolves really pulled together to help their community.
GOLF FOR COACH CARLSON
Please join CHS in raising money for one of CHS’s own, Coach John Carlson. Coach Carlson worked over 35 years in Chandler and led many athletes and teams to championships, including five national wrestling titles, nine national track titles and two national swimming titles. View the “Golf 4 Coach Carlson Cancer Invitational” flyer for more info on how you can help.
All college visits will take place in the CHS College & Career Center, unless otherwise specified. Students should sign up outside of the College & Career Center to attend a presentation. They will receive a pass in class on the day of the presentation.
