Fall Fundraiser Arrives Wed. October 8 –
The Annual Fall Fundraiser came to an end on September 15. I really appreciate all the help and support with this project. The kids have been done a fantastic job. The cookie dough will arrive next week on Wednesday, October 8. The money should be collected when the cookie dough is delivered to the customers. Checks can be made out to BMS Bands.
The cookie dough will be located in the lower band room in the band building just north of BMS. Students will need to make arrangements to pick up the cookie dough between 10:45 am and 7:00 pm. The end time of 7:0 pm may need to shift to 6:30 once I have schedules for next week.
The students need to deliver the dough right away to customers or keep it refrigerated that night. Parents can drop by during the day, after school, or early that evening. Just be careful to take a moment and make sure to just grab your child’s order. Students that have just a few items can bring them home from school.

Student of the Month –

The Related Arts Team at BMS is selecting a student of the month during the 2014 – 15 school year. The band student for the month of September is Kennedy Blair. Kennedy is the model beginning band student. She is off to a tremendous start and has an incredible clarinet tone and sound. I couldn’t be more proud of her dedication and attentiveness in class.

Congratulations Kennedy and thanks for being such a great band student.

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 started using these in class on Wed. Sept. 3.

Checks can be made out to BMS Band.
