Ice Breaker Info

Just a friendly reminder, the ice breaker is this Sunday.  Bring your lawn chairs.

We will not be accepting cash or credit cards this year.  Please bring a check for $40.00 made out to NHS for the transportation fee, and a separate check for $50.00 for the commitment fee for the year.  You must bring two separate checks.

Remember, these fees MUST be paid prior to the beginning of camp which is on Monday.

If you are a senior, please refrigerate your water prior to arriving so it’s already cold.

Juniors, you are bringing a dessert.

Sophomores and freshmen, you are bringing side dishes.


Thank you!



Camp Week: Let’s Do This!!!

“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” – St. Francis of Assisi

This coming week is very exciting for everyone! Both Mrs. Manglos and I have been talking over the phone, texting, and E-mailing from two different time zones preparing for this week and next year. I am thrilled to return, but equally thrilled to share duties with her as we issue a new version and era of the Northridge Choral Department!

Below is an outline of all of the events, times, and activities for next week. I will thank you all in advance for your patience on getting specific times and locations to you. A full calendar for the year is nearing completion, and should be online soon!

Students: Remember what you need to bring to the Ice Breaker on Sunday!

Students: For practices, bring a refillable bottle of water and bagged lunch or dinner!

Parents: Both Mrs. Manglos and I look forward to meeting you Sunday!



Yours once again in song,

Mr. Dan Baker

A letter from Mrs. Yoder

To My Students (past & present), My Students’ Parents & MMPA

There are not words that can describe how incredibly blessed and honored I feel to have had the privilege of being a choir teacher at Northridge High School.  I have learned so much from each and everyone of you and my life has been enriched by you.

To MMPA:  Thank you for your continued support and generosity of time and finances not just to me, but most importantly, to our program and our choir students.  We could not have had the successes we had without you.

To My Students’ Parents:  Thank you for allowing me the privilege of teaching your children.  It has been an honor and blessing.  I know there were times when your child was spending more time in my classroom than he/she was at home.  Thank you for trusting me with that privilege.

To My Students (both past & present):  I cannot begin to tell you what a blessing each of you are to me.  You are loved and treasured by me.  It has been thrilling watching you grow into fine young adults who continue to pursue excellence and to be people of compassion and character.  Continue to surround yourself with positive people who encourage you.  Encourage others.  Laugh often.  Be honest.  Listen more than you speak.  Go explore the world.  Then, come back and teach us what you learned.  Wherever you are, be ladies and gentlemen.  Work hard.  Above all else, guard your heart.  Whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable—-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—-think about such things.

May God bless you all!

Love, Mrs. Yoder

Updated post on fittings

Mrs. Yaney is no longer doing any fittings.  We will have someone in the costume shop from 5:30 to 8:30 PM tonight only.  Please try to make it sometime in this time frame.  If you cannot, please let us know and we will make alternate arrangements with you.

Again deepest apologies.  I know this has been confusing and frustrating.  Thank you for being patient with us!


Northern Lights, Starlights, Lyric Lights and Varsity Lights fittings for 2018-2019

All fittings for Show Choir for next year 2018-2019 will be from 2-6 Monday and 2-6 Tuesday in the costume shop.  If you are currently in one of these choirs (and will be again next year) and are at the high school you may stop by if you have a study hall or lunch during that time frame.  Mrs. Yaney will be doing the measurements.  Incoming freshman in the show choirs for next year can come after school, up until 6:00 PM.  Thank You.
