Fall Fundraiser Ended Monday –

The Annual Fall Fundraiser came 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 cookie dough will be delivered during the week of Oct 5. The money should be collected when the cookie dough is delivered to the customers. Checks can 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 Paoli competition of the season. The band had a strong performance at Columbus North and look to build on that this weekend.

Washington DC Update for 7th & 8th grade – 

I have discussed the trip with the students and shared the travel company website with them. The website is There is a link here on our site. You should be able to go ahead and create your account.

Click on the MTC Online tab and select new user under the sign-in box. You will be taken to a screen to set up your account, create a password, and fill in contact information. 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!
