February was an exciting month for CHS Theatre APAC students. A small group attended the CAFT Regional Thespian Competition and competed in acting and musical theatre categories. Isaac Dowdle scored Superior in Solo Musical Theatre. Joey Grado and Gabby Terrell scored Superior in Duet Musical Theatre. All three are eligible for Nationals with their Superior ratings this year!
APAC also entered this year's English Speaking Union's Shakespeare Competition. The winner of our school/theatre program competition was Liam Thibeault. This made him eligible for the ESU Phoenix Branch competition run by Southwest Shakespeare. The winner of that competition receives an all-expense paid trip to Nationals in NYC. Students from all over the valley competed and Liam was the runner-up!
Additionally, last week’s Showcase was a big success. APAC is currently on tour to elementary schools with Bookends, and this week the musical Into the Woods opens (March 8, 9, 10). It's going to be an amazing show!
INTO THE WOODS
An ambivalent Cinderella? A blood-thirsty Little Red Riding hood? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? A Witch ... who raps? They're all among the cockeyed characters in our upcoming musical production of Into the Woods starring CHS students this Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday) in the Chandler Center for the Arts Main stage. Come see if your favorite characters' wishes come true...or if they simply survive the woods!

DISABILITIES AWARENESS WEEK

2017 CHS TOY NOMINATIONS
It is time to formally recognize great teachers by nominating them for the 2017 CHS Teacher of the Year (TOY) Award! We are following the same criteria and process established by CHS’s Site Council, Teacher Leadership Team, and the Parent Advisory Council. Nominations will be taken through March 29th. The CHS TOY criteria aligns with the Arizona Educational Foundation’s (AEF) Teacher of the Year criteria, and ultimately, the CHS TOY will submit the AEF TOY application to be in the running for Arizona Teacher of the Year. Ms. Lori Lyford, CHS Choir Director, was named an Arizona Top 5 Teacher/Ambassador of Excellence, through the 2016 process.
If you would like to recognize a staff member who does not meet all of the criteria, please do so. Although he/she will not be in the running for AEF Teacher of the Year, CHS wants to acknowledge him/her.
