PERFECT ACT SCORES
Congratulations to Gabrielle Enns and Nicholas Johnson for earning perfect composite scores of 36 on the ACT. This achievement is significant and rare. On average, less than one-tenth of 1% of all test takers earns the top score. Among U.S. high school graduates in the class of 2016, only 2,235 out of nearly 2.1 million students who took the ACT earned a composite score of 36. Gabrielle and Nicholas are also National Merit Semi-Finalists. Congratulations!

GIRLS IN ENGINEERING PIPELINE
Chandler High School and Intel partnered for the Girls in Engineering Pipeline Workshop during the first week of Fall Break. Thirty-two young ladies from Andersen and Willis Junior Highs worked with CHS Engineering Teacher Mrs. Carmen Shugert to build and program EV3 Lego Mindstorm Robots to be able to accomplish different challenges. A second camp (it will be a continuation of the first one) will take place the first week of the spring intersession.
Symphonic Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, and a few string quartets performed a number of terrific songs at their first concert of the year before Fall Break. Songs ranged from Bach’s Eight Organ Preludes and Fugues in C Major to Halleluja from Shrek. The orchestras are conducted by Ms. Danelle Kennedy. Excellent work!
