Fall Fundraiser Ends Monday –

The Annual Fall Fundraiser is coming to an end on September 14. I really appreciate all the help and support with this project. The kids have been great and have been very excited about the project.

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.

Good Luck to the Marching Stars –

We want to wish our BNL Marching Stars the best of luck as they travel to the first competition of the season. They have been working hard and Mr. Jones has them focused and ready to go. The Stars will be competing at Columbus North HS in one of the largest competitions in the state this weekend.

You won’t need a trip number to create your account. The payment portal will be opened soon and I’ll share the trip number and necessary information as I receive it.

Keep in mind students need to attend extra after-school or evening rehearsals in the spring and not receive a suspension or expulsion from school to be eligible to participate.The down payment is non-refundable.

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. 9.

Checks can be made out to BMS Band.

Have a great week!
