Fall Fundraiser Has Started –

The Annual Fall Fundraiser began on September 2nd. 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.

The forms are due on September 14 and the cookie dough will be delivered during the week of Oct 5. We are just taking orders now and the money will be collected when the cookie dough is delivered. Checks will be made out to BMS Bands.

All-Region Honor Band Applications –

Applications are available in the band room for our 8th graders to perform in the All-Region Honor Band. This ensemble is selected by the Indiana Bandmasters Association and performs in Jasper. Students interested need to make sure they have November 14 and 15 free for rehearsals and a performance. These forms need to be returned by next Thursday, Sept. 10.

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 started using these in class on Wed. Sept. 9.

Checks can be made out to BMS Band.

Have a great week!
