Students and staff went all out for 2017 Homecoming Week. The parade theme was “Blast from the Past” and everyone had fun celebrating different decades. Friday culminated with the parade and football win over Mountain Ridge. During half-time, Homecoming King and Queen Noah Soto and Janet Rodriguez were crowned. Saturday night’s Homecoming Dance in the CHS Courtyard was amazing. Thanks to Student Council and everyone who participated in the 2017 CHS Homecoming festivities!

“FOR OUR CITY”
Last week 19 CHS students volunteered with the City of Chandler as part of the ‘For Our City’ neighborhood beautification project. They partnered with adult volunteers to knock on doors in the neighborhood just east of CHS to find out from the residents what type of work they would like to have done on the “For Our City” day on Saturday, October 28. All of the students were able to use both Spanish and English as they interacted with the neighborhood residents. The City of Chandler person that organized the event last week had this to say about our CHS volunteers: “IT WENT FANTASTIC! I was truly impressed with the Chandler High students. They were professional, outgoing, and paid attention to details.”
CHS is putting together a CHS team to help at the October 28 event. We will be collaborating to paint a neighborhood wall along Galveston Street. If you’d like to volunteer to be a part of our group, please sign up at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d4bafae2ba5f94-chsiband. This would be a great event for all ages!
