Weekly Recap - December 11, 2019
“The Best Christmas Pageant”
“The Best Christmas Pageant” is a musical hosted by the Mountain View Wild Acts. It is based off a children’s book written by Barbara Robinson and is about a bad tag team of siblings taking over the church’s annual Christmas pageant. They already had full-house showing last weekend, but they are coming back with a double showing on Dec. 14 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets for adults are $8 and $5 for all students.
The Mountain View Wildacts are proud to present their first ever Christmas Market on December 7 and 14. The market consisted of crafts, games, and a visit with Santa. On Saturday December 14, they are going to be having a drop and shop, where you can drop off your children after the matinee with the cast and shop through the market.
The first home boys basketball game is on Friday vs. Colonial Forge. Our team has one win this season. They defeated Spotsy High 86-54. Colonial Forge is one and one. They are coming off a loss to Riverbend. Tip-off is at 7 p.m. in the gymnasium.
The next level
Football player Adin Huntington committed to Kent State. Huntington stated,”Coaches always doubted me because of my height, but I am excited to play for a team in the FBS which was always my dream.” Huntington had multiple offers including JMU and Coastal Carolina. He chose Kent State because he always felt at home with the team, and they made him feel like he was worth it.
French class trip
The French teacher Susan Steska has a class trip planned to Europe for students willing to pay around $2,000. The trip will be a total of 12 days and there will be a three day tour to Munich and Nuremberg, which includes a tour of the Munch Cathedral, New Town Hall, and Olympic Stadium and many more fun activities. The trip will be held this summer, 2020. Steska would also like people to know it is not too late to sign up and for every six students, one chaperone goes for free, so be sure to advertise to students and teachers.
The Girls basketball team pack the heat against Forge
The girls JV and varsity teams will be packing the heat against Forge on Fri. 13. The teams have been practicing for their big game for three days, as well as five previous games of experience. With a total of 13 people on their team, they feel very confident about winning. “If we play hard, stay focused and calm, then yes we have a shot of winning,” said sophomore Zarai Marbara.
Next week, Mountain View High School students will be taking their midterm exams in year-long classes and final exams in 4x4 classes. On Tuesday, students will take exams for their first and third period Y day classes. Wednesday will have first and third period X day and 4x4 class exams. Thursday will have second and fourth period Y day and 4x4 class exams, and Friday will have second and fourth period X day class exams. Friday will be a half day, and students will only be attending their exam classes (second and fourth period X). Due to the modified lunch schedules, seniors will not be allowed to leave class early to go to lunch.
Annual blood drive is back
The annual blood drive has asked students who are 16 (with parent consent) and older to donate blood. On Money, Dec. 9, students donated blood which will help organizations in local areas. Students who donated blood help become eligible for scholarships. The goal for the blood drive was 27 pints and we donated 28 pints.
Now that's the spirit
This week was MVHS’s second annual spirit week; this week means new day new style and everyone is free to participate. This time around had lots of different styles and topics to get everyone ready for the holidays. Monday was pajama day, which means that most students came to school looking like they hopped straight out of bed and right on the bus. Tuesday duo day, a day where you pair up with a friend to match your styles. Wednesday was meme day. This was one of the most anticipated days of the week for many reasons. Students got to dress up as a meme of their choice. Thursday is festive day. A day in which students dress up for the holidays. Friday is the big finale with spirit day. A way to celebrate Mountain Views students and teachers as a whole.
Mountain View food drive
The American Legion Food Drive asked for junior classes to bring canned/boxed goods. The events lasted until December 13 and students have to bring their items to Room 306 or the English planning room. This food drive would appropriate the love and support for people who don't have food to eat during the cold, chilly nights.
