MVHS Chorus Spiritwear & Concert T-shirt

We are offering spiritwear once again for students to purchase. The T-shirt will be used for our Spring Concert performance, so everyone is required to purchase it; the hoodies and sweatpants are optional purchases.

This year's concert T-shirt was designed by Lily Poolkumlung, who is a member of the Intermediate Women's Ensemble and an exchange student from Thailand. For her winning design, Lily will receive her T-shirt for free! The shirts cost $13 (including tax) and are available to order through My Payments Plus. Any parents who are interested can also purchase a shirt in the same way. You can see the front and back design on the far left of the picture.

There are two options for those wishing to purchase a hoodie. Option 1 is just the hoodie for $23 (including tax). Option 2 hoodie includes having a name embroidered on hood for a total cost of $28 (also including tax).

Sweatpants are pictured on the far right. Students can choose to have their voice part on the right leg. Cost, including tax, is $28.

How do I order?

1. Log into My Payments Plus

2. Scroll down to School Clubs and select it

3. You will find several options available under MVHS Chorus Spiritwear.

4. Select the item(s) you are purchasing - be sure to check the box for the appropriate size ranging from Adult Small through Adult 2XL.

5. The quantity is not limited to one. If you'd like one of these items as well your student, you may purchase it at the same time.

The deadline for ordering hoodies or sweatpants is January 31 and the deadline for the performance t-shirt is February 28.

Choral Council Co-Presidents Receive Musical Honors

Seniors Kasey Bell and Aubrey Peat have put The View on the musical map this year! Both ladies auditioned and made the cut to participate in the All-State Sight Reading Chorus that will take place in Savannah January 29-31. Only 100 singers receive this opportunity, the best of the best! The girls have also passed the auditions to sing in All-State Chorus, with both of them being 6 year All-Staters - again, another big achievement. Joining them at All-State Chorus will be freshman Jordan Allen from our Men's Chorus. The perfect trifecta for Kasey and Aubrey was auditioning and being selected for the American Choral Director's Association National Honor Chorus. They will travel with Mrs. Wicker to Salt Lake City February 24-March 1! I know you join in adding your congratulations to these ladies for their exemplary achievements!
