“AND OFF WE GO”
Last Thursday’s dance concert highlighted the terrific talent of CHS Modazz, Advanced Dance and Improv, under the direction of Mrs. Kathy Buren. Not only did CHS dancers perform beautifully, but they also managed the stage, sound and lighting, choreographed the numbers, and much more. Well done!
It’s the time of year when AP and IB Art students are preparing to upload their work for testing. Before that’s done, we get to check out the talented students’ work on display in the Fine Arts Building. Congratulations to Mia Cordoba, David Diaz, and Jacqueline Rios for their outstanding displays!
HEALTH AND WELLNESS
On Monday, April 15th, Chandler High School’s Health and Wellness Drug Prevention Program hosted an informational presentation about Alcohol Awareness. Sara Davirro from MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) presented the Power of Parents program, sharing current statistics about teen alcohol use as well as tips for initiating constructive conversations between parents and teens about alcohol and drinking and driving. We also heard from Barry Adkins. Barry shared his story of losing his 18-year-old son to alcohol poisoning.
StuCo is hosting CHS Movie Night on the practice field this Friday from 7-10pm. Bring a blanket to sit on and money to purchase food from food trucks. Follow StuCo on twitter @CHSStuco1819 for more info. It’s bound to be a spooky but fun time!
