CONGRATULATIONS to Northwood's Pitch Please on their victory as the winner of the Division II Mix 105 Christmas Choir Competition!
 
"The overwhelming support from the students/staff/teachers/administration has been incredible! And not only at NHS. I received tons of messages from many county elementary and middle schools saying their whole staff and student body was voting for us. Even the chorus students at Chatham Central!
 
I am so moved by all of you and your love and support. THANK YOU!"
