Mock Trial State Finals
In February our CIHS Mock Trial Artist, Alejandra Orozco, placed 1st in the county for her exceptional drawings and artistic talent. Alejandra then moved on to the Mock Trial State Finals that took place on March 16th through the 18th in Orange County at the Santa Ana Courthouse. There she not only represented CIHS, but Ventura County as she competed against all the winning artists from all the other 37 counties in California. Unfortunately she didn’t place in the top three spots and won’t be moving on to nationals, but we are incredibly proud of her and can’t wait until she competes again. Here are her State drawing entrees.

Mrs. Fernandez’s Statistics Class
Each group created 30 Chance Cards and a Board Game that was developed through their own creativity based on topics that were covered in class. Concepts such as Probability with or without replacement, and the Counting Principle were made as the chance cards. With so much talent, the judging was difficult to do on the creativity of the project so with the help of Mr. Mares, Mr. Phrum, Mr. Garcia, Mr. Porter and Mrs. Ulmer, the judgment was in and the winner was…..
2nd place Jonathan Herrera and Steven Hernandez
1st place Yvonne Reyes and Areli Ruiz
