BLACK HISTORY SPIRIT WEEK RECAP
Last week, the Chandler Black Student Union sponsored Spirit Week including lunchtime music and trivia to honor and celebrate African-American achievements and promote inspiration, kindness and education.
Last week’s Choir Pops Concert was an awesome display of individual and whole group talent. The theme of the show was “Off the Big Screen” and individual performances ranged from Elton John to Taylor Swift to several Broadway songs. Four of CHS’s choirs also rocked the stage. Well done!

The IMPACT Chandler Scholars application is available on your student’s Infinite Campus Portal. IMPACT Chandler Scholars is an opportunity for your student to earn a scholarship.

Our High School Health and Wellness Program is encouraging students to learn to use MINDFULLNESS to cope with the stress and anxiety of life as a teenager and prevent the use of drugs and alcohol.
Here are some MINDFULLNESS apps for teens:
Stop, Breathe, and Think. Teens like this app because it opens with a short "interview" where the user selects several words to describe how they are feeling, and then the app recommends guided meditations for their current state.
Smiling Mind. Designed for adolescents (and teens generally love anything with an Australian or British accent!)
Take a Break! Not necessarily just for teens, but it provides short guided meditations for stress relief.
Next time you are feeling stressed or anxious, consider giving one of them a try!
For more information about our Health and Wellness Program at Chandler High School, contact the Prevention Coach, Sarah Hunter at 480-812-7709 or Project Staff Heather Dyke at 480-812-7983.
