Washington DC Update for 7th & 8th grade – 

We shared the sign-up information and travel website with the bands on Wednesday. The website is There is a link on our site. Students should be able to create an account and start making payments. The students were given the trip number, account instructions, and payment schedule. There are more copies available in the band building.

Only band students should sign up at this point in the process with parental help. Parents interested in chaperoning should contact the band office through your child or with email or phone call to be placed on the potential chaperon list. Chaperons will start signing up soon.

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

Good Luck to the Marching Stars –

We want to wish our BNL Marching Stars the best of luck as they host the first inaugural BNL Marching Stars Invitational this weekend at BNL. The band had a strong performance at Paoli last weekend. The Marching Stars finished in First Place and won awards for Best Music and Best General Effect.

Make it a point to come out to BNL to see our Marching Stars and seven other bands perform on Saturday. The contest begins at 12:00.

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!
