A small tradition for the DMS choir group would be selling groups of poinsettias to help raise money.

This year, the choir sold a total of 576 sets of flowers, with the help of students selling the poinsettias via order forms that they could take to anyone who was willing to buy.

These flowers are just now being delivered through different ways: either the people who ordered can pick them up themselves or the students can personally deliver them themselves. COVID-19 would have an impact on a select few people with the process of picking up flowers, but it shouldn’t be too much of a problem. 

The colors  sold were red, white and pink, and they cost the amount of $12. The deadline to order these poinsettias was Halloween.

Vocal music teacher Mark Monteith said the money raised from the fundraiser “helps with general stuff and goes towards competitions.”
