STUCO STATE CONVENTION
Last week CHS’s Student Council attended the AASC State Convention at Independence HS in Glendale along with 2000 other students from across the state. The theme was “Leaders R Us” and CHS wore baby pictures of themselves and became “Scrabble” pieces. Students were challenged to “not be scared” about being a leader and were energized to return to their school to continue to make a difference.
In addition, CHS Student Council received the Outstanding Council of Distinction Award (the highest level) and the Gold level award for Charitable Contributions. The most exciting news from State was that our very own Damijah Carter, 11th grader, was elected to become one of three AASC state officers. Congratulations, Damijah!
On Friday, our Drug Prevention program #THINKFIRST asked students to share how they want to shatter the myths about drug addiction. Students during A and B lunch shared many reasons why they choose to stay away from drugs.
JOIN THE 2018-2019 LINK CREW
Link Crew is a freshman transition program that helps incoming 9th graders make the adjustment to the high school environment. Link Leaders, 11th and 12th graders, help make this transition as smooth as possible. Link Crew organizes Freshman Orientation, a freshman-only day before the first day of school that provides the opportunity to meet other 9th grade students. It empowers students to make wise choices and helps prepare freshmen for a successful first day of school. Orientation includes a tour of the campus so new students have an idea where their classes are located. Link Crew also organizes academic and social events such as the Final Exam Cram session in December, A-lunch games and activities, and a back-to-school Freshman Pool Party.

BOYS STATE APPLICATION
Boys State, a program sponsored by The American Legion, is a leadership action program where boys entering their senior year can participate in a practical governmental course designed to develop a working knowledge of the structure of the state and local government. CHS can send three boys to the conference held June 3rd through June 9th at Northern Arizona University.
Please see Ms. Jaramillo in the College and Career Center for more info and an application. Students will be selected by a CHS committee and be notified by April 6, 2018.
GIRLS STATE APPLICATION
Girls State will be held June 3-June 9, 2018 on the campus of University of Arizona. The Girls State program provides young women entering their senior year the opportunity to come together to study state government. It teaches them to understand that they are an integral part of the political process. It helps them realize they have a responsibility to make tomorrow a better time, the world a better place, and that this job is up to them. Girls State gives them the opportunity to live together under their own government, which is executed entirely by them, and to deal with problems as they arise. The cost is $100.00. CHS can send two girls to the conference.
Please stop by the College and Career Center to pick up an application. Deadline to turn in applications is Thursday, March 1, 2018.
