chs history department
Last Friday, Mrs. Howell’s students "channeled" Rosie the Riveter and Uncle Sam. The American History classes have just finished learning about the start of "American Exceptionalism" and thought it would be fun to dress as them.
WORLD LANGUAGE FAIR RECAP
Chandler High School celebrated its 7th Annual World Language Expo featuring musical performances in Spanish, French, German, Mandarin, Danish, Navajo, and Hindi! Students and their families were also able to try Poutine (Quebec style French fries) courtesy of the CHS French Club, and due to the handsome donations of Boba Tea House and Paleta's Betty, students and families were also able to try Asian style milk teas and Mexican style popsicles. Those in attendance also participated in cultural games such as this year's Nutella Challenge whereby students were asked to answer the question: Does Nutella really taste good on anything? Mystery items included jalapeños, cornichons (small French pickles) and sliced avocados. It is rumored that CHS Principal Rother's dice rolled a jalapeño/nutella combo.

parent education meeting
Please join us for our second Parent Education Meeting. This is a night for parents to receive information on current topics that affect families in their everyday lives. Teenagers struggle with so many different issues. Sometimes they self-medicate as a coping mechanism. This can be seen in behavior changes, attitude adjustments, and in personal relationships. Do you ever wonder if your teen is struggling and would you recognize the signs of self-medicating behavior?
Stephanie Siete, Director of Community Education for Community Bridges, Incorporated (CBI), will be giving a presentation on current drug trends, the signs and symptoms of teen drug use, and preventative measures that can be taken to support teenagers as they navigate this difficult space. She will also provide resources for families to utilize. Stephanie will be presenting in the Chandler High School Career Center (Administration Building) on Thursday, December 3rd, from 6:30 to 8:00pm.
For further questions, please contact Chandler High’s social worker, Erin Zius, at email@example.com. We hope to see you there!
