LUKE AFB FIELDTRIP
CHS’s AF JROTC visited Luke Air Force Base recently and visited the Explosive Ordinance Disposal Squadron. Cadets got to operate the bomb robots and actually dress up in the protective suits that are worn in the field while disarming explosives.
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.
SOFTBALL SERVES COMMUNITY
For the third straight year, Chandler High Softball volunteered at Feed My Starving Children. With a total of 201 boxes, they helped pack 43,416 meals. This is enough to feed 118 kids for an entire year!

Students in the AVID program went on the spring college visit to Grand Canyon University last week. They toured the campus, learned about academic programs, sports and student life, and listened to a student panel.

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 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.
