E-SPORTS INTEREST MEETING
Arizona high school students can start competing for an eSports state title starting Feb. 2019. Arizona students will vie for eSports state titles in Rocket League and League of Legends, two very popular video games. Since the AIA is expecting a lot of students to sign up, it’ll run eSports leagues in the spring and fall high school sports seasons.
In League of Legends, opposing school teams will be comprised of five players. In Rocket League, it will be 3 vs. 3.Teams can remain at their schools while dueling online, and schools can carry as many team members as they want. Other state associations also are organizing eSports high school leagues, including neighboring New Mexico.
All students who are interested in competing in E-Sports for Chandler High School should attend the informational meeting which will be on Thursday November 15th during A and B lunches in the CTE Lecture Hall.

CORE VALUE HIGHLIGHT
CHS is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. The aim of all IB programs is to develop internationally-minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
IB learners are “Reflective”: They give thoughtful consideration to their own learning and experience. They are able to assess and understand their strengths and limitations in order to support their learning and personal development.
