2017-2018 BIG/LITTLES

In keeping the tradition of encouraging our newer singers, we are excited to announce this year’s Big/Littles!  We put a JV singer with a Varsity singer (or a Varsity sophomore with an upperclassmen in varsity- in particular for some boys).  Some Seniors have two Littles :).

For Homecoming, the JV Little will sing beside their Big UNLESS they are both in third period (those will sing with their family groups).  It will make sense in class, I promise 🙂

Your job is to find your Big/Little This week!

A Letter from Dr. Stringer

Dear Students,

It is with a sad heart that I have to tell you that I will not be with you this year at MHS.  I have just been offered a position as choral director for East Mississippi Community College, and have decided to accept the position.  Although teaching at a college is something that I want to do, I have very mixed feelings because of the relationship that I have developed with you for the past three years that I have been at MHS.

You are wonderful students, and I know that you will continue to grow into the young adults you are meant to be.  I hope that you will keep singing as you follow Mrs. Davis’ leadership.  I won’t be with you every day anymore, but please know that you will continue to be in my thoughts and in my heart.


Dr.  Lorrie S. Stringer

2017 Graduation

Hi everyone-

Graduation is a special time that, although is a lot of prep work, is meaningful to me. Seeing our seniors on this special day is a great way to end the year- especially this class since they grew with me as a director.

However, I need to tell you that I will not be at school Thursday or Friday. My father will have a triple bypass surgery Friday morning.  Only family would take me away.  Please pray for a smooth surgery and for my mother who will help him recover.  I will be with him also for a week.

Dr. Stringer will lead graduation with help from several others. Singers- we desperately need you there! Please make sure you are on time- 6:00 in the choir room wearing dressy black.

Special thanks to Mr. Altman and Mrs. Iverson for helping and also to Mr. Ruff and Ms. Burns for helping as well- be aware you will need to adapt to a different conductor for the performance. You still represent all that we have worked hard for this year to the largest audience we will sing for.  PLEASE BE DISCIPLINED AND MATURE- represent who we are!

Class of 2017- I am tearing up now thinking of our special memories.  You mean so much to me and I am heartbroken I am missing this.  Thank you for your loyalty to choir and the amazing work you did.  I can’t wait to see the amazing things you do!

I love you all and I hope you have a super summer! – Mrs. Davis

President’s Update- August

Hey you guys! It’s been an exciting first couple weeks of school and I’m glad to see everyone getting back in the groove of things. Just a few friendly reminders.

September 12, 2016 is our Atlanta meeting from 5pm-6pm. If you plan on going on this trip, it is imperative that you and a parent or guardian be there to find out any information about the trip.

September 30th, 2016 is our homecoming game and party. Before the game, the choir council will throw a small party for students to hang out and chill before the game. You will also be appointed a rookie at this homecoming party. Sort of like how sororities have “brothers” and “sisters”. There are more details to come.

As of now those are our two biggest events and I’m so excited to see how they turn out! If you have any questions, please contact me or Mrs. Davis.



Hello Everyone!  Hope you are all enjoying your break.  We are calling ALL VARSITY SINGERS (grades 10-12) to help us at our FIRST two performances.  We need people to commit to both events and this is SUPER community service hours :).

1.  Tuesday, July 26 – Parent Power Hour (Special invitation from Mr. Hubbard!!)  Students need to be in the choir room at 3:00.  We will have a special welcome from our Choir Council and clean up three songs to sing at the PARENT POWER HOUR at 6:00 in the MHS Auditorium.  You should be done by 6:30.  Students should wear blue choir shirts (or a blue uniform shirt) with jeans/jean shorts/khaki shorts/khaki pants/black shorts/ black pants- very flexible with the bottoms.  Our famous pizza and water is provided  🙂

2.  Monday, August 1- MPSD Convocation- You are being requested to sing for the entire MPSD FACULTY- BIG DEAL!!!- Meet at the counselor suite behind the MHS auditorium at 7:15 for donuts and orange juice.  We will sing at 8:00 (the same three songs from July 26th) and you are finished by 8:15.  This is early but is SUCH AN HONOR!!  Choir shirts and any bottoms 🙂

Please commit to both as these are our community’s FIRST impression of who we are!

3.  Sunday, August 7- There is a strong possibility that MHS will have Open House from 2-4.  While you are visiting your other teachers, be sure and come by the choir room and visit our orientation stations.  The entire process should not take over 15 minutes, and you will get lots done (think forms, sizes, handbook/calendar, pay fees, etc).  Free restroom pass if you come :).

4.  Monday, August 8- FIRST LAMPLIGHTER PRACTICE – 3:40- 5:00.  Choir room.

5.  Monday, September 12- Atlanta Choir trip parent meeting 5:00- 6:00.  Choir room.

THIS YEAR IS GONNA BE AWESOME!!!!!  Spread the Word!
