THIS WEEK’S home EVENTS
- Monday, May 22nd: Choir Concert @ 7:00pm in the CCA Main
AVID students were recognized last week at the 2017 AVID End-of-Year Celebration. CHS celebrated the twenty AVID Seniors who participated in the program multiple years, took CHS’s most rigorous classes, completed college research, worked on organization and study skills, and engaged in community service. 100% of the seniors were accepted into 4-year universities and will be attending ASU, U of A, NAU, GCU, and Penn State among others.
Additionally, the following students were named AVID Students of the Year: Alejandra Morales Jacome (9th), Jonathan Gutierrez (9th), Duy Nguyen (10th), Jose Angel Pineda (10th), Gisselle Barocio (11th), and Brieanna Sims (12th)
William “Trey” Lewis will attend SPOT 127 Boot Camp at KJZZ's Youth Media Center in June. High school participants will spend two weeks learning to report, write, shoot and edit audio and video stories with the latest equipment. It is an excellent opportunity for students to get hands-on production experience and to develop multimedia pieces.
MAKER MONTH 2017
Maker Month is the culminating event for the students enrolled in the Entrepreneurship class. Throughout the year, they conduct research, write a business plan, pitch their business plan to obtain funding and their license to operate on campus, create their products at the TechShop, and then launch their business on campus during Maker Month. It is what they have been working towards all year. Once they hit their break-even point in sales, everything else they make is theirs to keep. It is a pilot program for eventually starting their own business.
CULINARY CAKE DECORATING LAB
Last week, CHS Culinary students participated in the Cake Decorating Lab, a definite favorite. Great job!
