MHS Choral Society Bulb Fundraiser - Order your Amaryllis or Paperwhites Bulb Kits NOW - Quantities Limited

New this year - Amaryllis and Paperwhites Bulb Kit fundraiser! Help us make your holiday gift-giving a lot easier.   Click HERE to order your bulb kits today! 

Bulbs are a thoughtful gift, fun to grow and last well into the winter. Here are some other reasons to love these bulb kits:

•  PriceReasonably priced at $20.00, these make unique, long lasting gifts for teachers, co-workers,  grandparents, friends or your host. Buy one for yourself and enjoy watching the bulbs grow indoors and bloom throughout the winter. 
Ready to Give - Each kit comes ready to give - beautifully boxed with growing instructions. Soil or pebbles are included. Amaryllises need heavy pots for stability so pots are not included.  Paperwhites can be grown in any shallow bowl or dish. 
High Quality - These indoor bulbs for winter have been ordered directly from the nursery and are elegantly, custom wrapped. These are not like the amaryllises and paperwhites you find at grocery and "big box" stores. Great care was taken to select only very high quality plants.  
Supporting Arts -   50% of each purchase goes directly to the mhs choral department to fund their activities and scholarships.  Thank you for your support!      

Note: Pickup is scheduled for December 13th. We will have started a limited number of deep red amaryllises ready to bloom for $25.00. Please contact us with questions or if you would like to reserve one or more or the pre-potted bulbs at mcleanchoralsociety@gmail.com.

Letter from Ms. Reilly and Ms. Martin Regarding Choral Classes Next Year

Dear McLean Community,
 
We write today to inform you of good news regarding the status of our choral department program.  Although it seemed inevitable that the program would have to be reduced due to the current budget challenges facing FCPS, we have, through creative problem solving and input from the community, come up with a plan that we believe will ensure the program continues to thrive and be a vital part of the McLean experience.  The program will remain the same in the 2014-15 academic year with the exception of moving the Madrigal class into the school day.  There will be a separate Women’s Chorus, Men’s Chorus, and Advanced Women’s Chorus (Armonia); we will also offer Music Theory and AP Music Theory.  This solution helps the school system with its staffing issues, while preserving the long tradition of choral groups at McLean High School.  We would like to thank the community of parents, students, and faculty that have worked with us to resolve the scheduling issues.  

We remain committed to providing a well-rounded education for all McLean High School students.  

Points to note:
         Students who are in Madrigals will meet with Ms. Martin to discuss options of taking a second chorus class.
         Information regarding a new Economics and Personal Finance option for the summer can be found by clicking HERE.
 
Thank you for your support and cooperation. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Ellen T. Reilly                   Linda Martin
