Last week’s “Chandler’s Got Talent” was definitely a highlight of the year! Congratulations to the top placers:

1) Corneisha Mitchell and D'Ona Jackson performed a terrific Beyoncé medley

2) Jasmine Chamblin showed off her amazing vocals on a rendition of "I'm Going Down"

3) Tomas Hernandez absolutely blew the audience away with his beat boxing skills

4) Jake Morris performed an act from Broadway where he showed off his acting AND singing skills

5) Taylor Daniels and the Lion's Den performed a funk version of "I'm Coming Out"

Judges had a difficult time deciding who should place because all of the performers were fantastic. Congratulations to all of the performers and to Miss Kendra Van Norman, Miss Amanda Cordova and Mr. Adam Vitcavage for organizing the event.

IB Immersion Camp

Over Spring Break, Mrs. Wyffels, Mr. Sapakie, Dr. Foerst and Mrs. Bejarano led another IB Immersion Camp with 8th grade students from the Si Se Puede organization. Current CHS IB students helped to give these 8th graders a hands-on experience with IB curriculum.
