On May 19th, Mr. Rafuse took 38 members of the 7-8th grade Warrior Chorus to Carowinds for their Festival of Music competition. The students were able to enjoy the rides for four hours before they performed later in the afternoon. The Warrior Chorus received a rating of Excellent from a panel of three judges. According to Mr. Rafuse, “the students went wild after being presented with the Excellent rating. I cannot say enough how proud I am of these Warriors. Not only did they play hard, they showed up to the theater exhausted, but they had preserved their voices and still slayed it.” Mr. Rafuse would also like to thank the following for their help with this trip: Mr. Davontae Singleton (ELW), Dr. Hawkins (SVHS), Mr. Jason Bush, Mr. Paul Tyler, and Mrs. Angela Chestnut. Congratulations Warriors!
