Future Wolves visited CHS last week, met Mr. Rother, heard from our student panel, toured Career and Tech Ed classrooms, and received their first piece of Chandler swag. Students were greeted by band and cheer and then engaged in hands-on activities in CTE classes such as Agriscience, Engineering, Early Childhood Education, Automotive Technologies, Marketing, Culinary Arts, Woods, Digital Printing, Multimedia and Film, and Computer Science.
BOYS BASKETBALL HELPING IN THE COMMUNITY
On Saturday, the CHS Boys Basketball program spent time helping the community at St. Mary’s Food Bank. The coaches, players, and parents helped box approximately 3,000 boxes of food for those in need with other volunteers from across the valley. This was a great opportunity for the program, and all involved look forward to helping again in the near future.
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.
IB REGISTRATION FAIR
One of the things that a well-rounded student needs to show colleges and scholarship organizations is that he or she has had some meaningful summer experiences. There are many different ways to meet this objective: a summer job, an extended volunteer experience, a specific learning goal (through a course), a ‘camp’ experience to dig deeper into an interest, or a leadership opportunity.
Arizona State University runs many different programs in the summer that allow high school students to learn, explore interests, gain unique experiences and stand out from other college applicants.
A representative from ASU will be in the CHS College and Career Center on Wednesday, January 17th, at 6:00pm to talk with parents and students about some of the opportunities. We hope to see you there!
