Thanks to the organizers, the World Language Department, and everyone who participated in this terrific event!

The CHS Student Senate met last Thursday. After quick announcements from Student Council, the students split up into their committees to discuss school issues, provide feedback on 1st semester events, and give input on upcoming assemblies and Winter Week.
Chandler High has been named a Lead2Feed Certified School. Thirty-six schools in the U.S. received this honor in September for their goal oriented community service and leadership. This award would not be possible without the hard work of CHS’s FCCLA. Congratulations!
FFA STUDENTS VISIT HARTFORD
Chandler High FFA students taught the lifecycle of a pumpkin to Hartford Elementary first graders last week. Great job, FFA!
IB GROUP 4 SCIENCE DAY
The IB group 4 project is a collaborative activity where students from different IB Group 4 subjects (sciences) work together on a scientific or technological topic, allowing for concepts and perceptions from across the disciplines to be shared to develop an understanding of the relationships between scientific disciplines and their influence on other areas of knowledge.
Last Friday, the IB Chem, Bio, Physics, Comp Sci, and Environmental Systems students worked in multi-disciplinary groups to carry out an activity that incorporated all sciences.
CHS CULINARY HOSTS AIA
The CHS Culinary Department hosted the Arizona AIA Bylaws Meeting. Thanks to Mrs. Mayberry and CHS’s Culinary students!
SI SE PUEDE PARTNERSHIP
Alberto Esparza, founder of the Si Se Puede Foundation, spoke to Ms. Mitchell’s and Ms. Martinez’s ELD students about goal setting last Friday. Mr. Esparza encouraged the students to be like a lion. The lion is not the smartest, the fastest, or the tallest, BUT he takes risks and believes he can do things. Mr. Esparza also encourages students to dress professionally as they plan for success. Thank you, Mr. Esparza!

CORE VALUE HIGHLIGHT
CHS is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. The aim of all IB programs is to develop internationally-minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
IB learners are “Risk-takers”: They approach unfamiliar situations and uncertainty with courage and forethought, and have the independence of spirit to explore new roles, ideas and strategies. They are brave and articulate in defending their beliefs.
AP FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
AP students: Are you a student who is not on free/reduced lunch status and looking for financial assistance to help pay for your AP tests in May?
Remember to get a form from Mrs. Baumann in the counseling department. The deadline is November 16th.
TAX CREDIT DONATION
Arizona law ARS 43-1089.01 enables taxpayers a tax credit contribution of up to $400.00 per calendar year if filing status is Married, filing Joint Return; $200.00 per calendar year if filing status is Single or Head of Household; and, $200.00 per calendar year if filing status is Married filing separate return — for contributions that fund extracurricular activities in public schools. A tax credit is a full refund, not a deduction.
Contributions eligible for a tax credit are donated directly to schools, not to the state or the school district. To participate, follow the Tax Credit Donation link.
