BNL Marching Stars Information – 

Marching Band sign-up forms and summer calendars are available in the band room for students interested in marching with the BNL Stars next year. I would love to see everyone march. I’ve already received a lot of forms and we have a lot of interest in this wonderful activity.

BNL Drumline –

The next BNL percussion meeting will be May 17 in the BNL Band room from 6-7:30 pm. This includes any of our 8th graders that plan to march with the BNL Marching Band next fall.

BNL Marching Stars Bowling Party –

The BNL Marching Stars are having a bowling party on May 23rd. 8th graders that are marching next fall are invited and encouraged to attend. The party will take place at the bowling alley in Bedford from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. The band members will have a great time and information about the upcoming season will be available for parents.


Elementary School Visits  –

I have made yearly visits to the elementary schools to see the 5th graders. It was a great opportunity to talk about signing up for band. Here is a link to the beginning band sign up form: We have a lot to offer here at BMS and the band program is a great way to get involved in our school.

Year End Instrument Thoughts –

Paige’s customers may want to send instruments in for maintenance and cleaning. It is a free service if you have a maintenance agreement . You can call Paige’s at 1-800-337-0471 to arrange an instrument pick-up, ask any questions or request a loaner. Paige’s can then ship the instrument back to you or deliver it to BNL or BMS.

Some that rented at Melody Music in Bloomington for the school year may have a return date coming up soon.

All instruments that are not school instruments need to be taken home for the summer. It will be a good idea to get them out every few weeks to keep valves and slides moving.


Fundraising –

A few students have fundraising money out. We need to wrap those projects up before school lets out for the summer.

Have a great week!
