Boys Varsity Soccer
The Boys Varsity Soccer Team will head to Florida this Wednesday to play in the MAST tournament hosted by Montverde Academy.

Chandler, Gulliver Prep (Miami, Fla.), Cathedral (Los Angeles, Calif.) and St. Paul's (Covington, La.) are coming off state title-winning seasons. Sam Houston (Arlington, Texas) was a Texas 5A state semifinalist.

Last week, CHS’s Career and Tech Ed (C.T.E.) Department hosted eighth graders from Willis and Andersen Junior Highs to tour several classrooms and check out programs available to them next year. CHS students did a terrific job of explaining their programs and demonstrating skills from classes such as Engineering, Automotive, Culinary, Agriscience, Woods, and Media Production. In addition, future Wolves got advice from current students, enjoyed lunch on campus and received an “I AM A WOLF” t-shirt. It was a terrific event!
The Sun Lakes Rotary Club is sponsoring a speech contest this spring, with the finalists from all CUSD high schools presenting their winning speeches at a Rotary Club meeting on April 5th for final judging.
