September 2014: Ms. Haas


For the month of September, Ms. Haas was chosen as our teacher of the month! Although she is the newest addition to our Creative and Performing Arts SLC, she has been working very hard with our choir kids to prepare them for the upcoming year filled with competitions. Ms. Haas has been teaching for about 7 years, and she has all of her degrees in music. This school year, Ms. Haas aspires to get to know everyone involved at our school and to discover those students who excel musically. Even though we have only been a month into the school year, Ms. Haas has already been making an impact within our small learning community. Excited to be apart of Cesar Chavez High School, she can not wait to add her own twist to our music department! For the reason of her future aspirations and goals, Ms. Haas is CAPA's teacher of the month!


September 2014: Angelina Sam


Our Student of the Month for the month of September is Angelina Sam! She is a dedicated, motivated, and very active student in the Creative and Performing Arts SLC! Being involved with drama, vice president for Interact Club, commissioner for rallies in Student Government, and a dancer in Filipino Club, it's quite obvious why we are acknowledging her consistency as a student for not only excelling academically, but also artistically. The reason she chose CAPA as her SLC was because she loves to perform and would like to find a career in the business field. Though we are only a month into school, Angelina has already performed in Drama's most recent and first production of the year, "A Piece of My Heart." Her performance on stage for someone as young as herself was an absolutely amazing sight to watch! If you ever see Angelina around, give a round of applause because she truly deserves it!
