Last week, the CHAH students in Music and Dance classes performed at our 2nd Annual Winter Concert! There were choreographed dance performances, music from the CHAH Orchestra, and some throwback tunes by the CHAH Rock and Roll Band!

The Winter Concert was performed at Boriqua College’s Auditorium in Washington Heights, just down the road from CHAH.

Our Performing Arts students have talent to spare! Well done, CHAH performing artists!

The boys basketball team participated in the prestigious Martin Luther King Tournament at James Monroe High School this weekend. Although the boys came up short against the extremely talented and top ranked South Bronx Prep Panthers, two of our athletes were recognized at the event.

Marcel Garcia was given the Academic Award for his high GPA and achievements on the court and Jacob Ramirez was given the Sportsmanship Award for his positive attitude towards his teammates and officials throughout the day.

It is an exciting week as the boys prepare for their trip to Syracuse this Friday.

CHAH Boys Basketball Starting Strong!

The boys basketball team is just about at the halfway point of the season. Thus far, it has been a great success. They are 11-4 overall and 8-2 in league play. Included in some of those wins are some exciting overtime victories and some exhilarating moments in front of our packed crowds at home and away.

The second half should be filled with more excitement as the team prepares to play the Number 1 team in the state, South Bronx Prep, in the prestigious Martin Luther King tournament at James Monroe High School. A week after that, the boys make their annual trip to Syracuse to play Westhill High School and get a tour of the Carmelo Anthony Center at Syracuse University.

Career Day at CHAH

Last week was Career Day here at CHAH! Professionals from all sorts of industries and services came and spoke to the students for the morning. Each professional spoke to a classroom of students about their experiences and education for about twenty minutes.

Students were visited by an advertising salesperson, FDNY firefighters, a NYPD photographer, an accountant, a corrections officer (who graduated from CHAH!), a physical therapist, a judge, an information technology specialist, and a research scientist, among others.

Students were able to ask questions about the various careers and hear a variety of options for their futures.
