Fall Fundraiser To Kick Off On Sept. 2 –

This year’s annual fall fundraiser will begin September 2nd and end September 15. We will be selling cookie dough again. Last year’s sale was just incredible and the profits really helped the program grow. We don’t expect the students to go out and sell a lot or be aggressive in taking orders. We are large enough that a few orders from everyone will more than meet our needs. I really appreciate any help at all with this project. From personal experience, I know it is a tough time and some households may have another fundraiser happening with a sibling. The profits enable us to sell supplies and equipment below cost to the students. We also use profits to lower trip costs, so students that participate in fundraisers receive discounts on local band trips.

Beginning Band Books –

All the beginning students will need a beginning band book. We use Essential Elements 2000. Most students that rented from Paige’s Music already have this and others may too. The percussion book includes the snare and bell music and costs $15. The rest of the band books are $9. The students that need a book can purchase it from the band office as the books arrive. We will begin using these in class on Wed. Sept. 3.

Checks can be made out to BMS Band.

6th Grade Percussion Auditions –

The 6th Grade percussionists will need to acquire the stick bag and book they need for class now that auditions are over. The band department has ordered the stick bags with what the percussionists need to make it easy for them. Last year the stick bags with the sticks and mallets cost $55 and we are able to keep the price the same this year. They will also need to have something to practice bell parts on at home. A bell kit, piano, iPad app, or little electric keyboard work well for this. Stick bags continue to arrive from our supplier. As of today we still have 2 stick bags in stock here at BMS. More are on the way.

Have a great week!
