Purple! Gold! The house was FULL of spirit last night at our Eagle Spirit Night pep rally! Our 27 teams entered the EdgeCenter (aka The Nest) to applause and cheers from a full house of supporters. Our Eagle mascot, Monty, was a big hit as he energized and entertained the audience with antics throughout the event.

Our concert choir sang the National Anthem and our theatre department performed a song from the upcoming production of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”
Three lucky students were big winners, taking home MVA baskets overflowing with snacks, gift cards and MVA gear. Our spirit helpers also showered the crowd with free t-shirts between the entertaining games that featured students, student-athletes, faculty, and coaches having a friendly competition for prizes and bragging rights!
It was a great night to celebrate MVA Eagles Spirit and get revved up for the upcoming season. Thank you to Mr. Jim Seaney, Media Arts teacher, who did a great job keeping the energy in the house up all night as our emcee, the Athletic Booster Club and the Arts Alliance, volunteers and staff who made the event run so smoothly.
