Congratulations to the 6th Grade Band –

Congratulations to the 6th grade band on a great performance at the 2012 NLCS Fine Arts Festival. You did an outstanding job. You can still order CD’s of the performance for $5 at the BMS Band Office. Out of 117 students we only had 3 absent. What a great turnout and show of support shown by all our students, parents and friends.

7th and 8th Band Concerts Moved to May 10 @ 7 pm –

The NLCS Fine Arts Festival was April 16 – 19. The 6th Grade Band performed on April 17th at the PAC. The 17th was originally set for the 7th grade concert last spring. We moved the 7th Grade Concert to May 10th to avoid this conflict. The 8th Grade Choir performed at the Fine Arts Festival on the 19th. That date was selected for the 8th grade band concert last spring. We have also moved the 8th Grade Concert to May 10 to perform the same night as the 7th grade band. That concert will need to begin at 7:00 pm in order to get both band performances in that night. We tried to have these concerts before baseball and softball begins, but having to move the concerts to May has made that tough. We would appreciate any help in making both activities work out for the kids.

Still accepting forms for the Annual Big Splash Trip on Monday, April 23 –

I have been so impressed with our bands. Our next event is a trip to the Big Splash Water Park to reward the band students for playing at the concerts and rehearsing so well. The cost is $25 and it covers supper at the water-park, swimming and buses. Everyone that participated in either the fall cookie dough fundraiser or the spring butter braid fundraiser can deduct $5 from the cost for helping with the fundraiser and pay just $20. We hope to leave at 4:00 pm and return around 9:00 pm on Monday, Apr. 23. We are going on a week night in order to rent out the entire facility for just the BMS Band Dept. We will be only ones in the water park, along with the Big Splash lifeguards and staff. Here is a link to more information: http://www.nlcs.k12.in.us/bedjrhi/Band/Microsoft%20Word%20-%20Big%20Splash%202012.pdf. A permission form can be found here: http://www.nlcs.k12.in.us/bedjrhi/Band/Microsoft%20Word%20-%20Big%20Splash%20Permission%20Form%2012.pdf. We are still accepting forms and fees on Monday, April 23.

Broadview Bowl Party for 6th and 7th Grade Bands on May 1 –

On May 1 the BMS 6th and 7th Grade Bands will go bowling at Broadview Bowl in Bedford from 4 pm to 5:45 pm. It will be a load of fun and a great time for the band kids to enjoy themselves before leaving for the summer. The bands have done a tremendous job this year and I am very proud of them. Parents can drop students off at Broadview Bowl at 4 pm and pick them up at 5:45 pm. The cost is free for students that sold the fall or spring fundraiser. Students that didn’t participate in a fundraiser will need to pay $5 that evening. The cost will include shoes and bowling balls. The students need to remember to wear or bring socks and that all school rules are in effect. Students may also want to bring money to purchase drinks at the concession counter and for any video games they may want to play.

Pegasus Parade to be televised live May 3 –

Several members of the 8th grade band will be marching with the BNL Marching Stars in this year’s Kentucky Derby Pegasus Parade in Louisville, KY. The parade will be televised live on WISH TV. The students have been working hard to prepare and will have a great time in Louisville. Check your local TV stations for times and set your DVR’s.

Have a great week!
