*Wednesday, October 30, 2019 - All Band students will have a substitute during class. Mr. Johnny Bohlin will be their sub. He is a private lesson teacher at BHS and will rehearse the bands as usual on their Winter Concert music. All students will be respectful and rehearse with excellent rehearsal etiquette. All directors will be off site visiting another band program for the day. Thank you.
Please make sure your child is hydrating throughout the day at school (water and/or gatorade type drinks) and eating healthy meals so they are healthy and up to the challenge of marching band. This is especially important on game and contest days.
Project “Clean Up”!
The Band Managers, Drum Majors, and Directors are taking a more proactive approach to helping motivate students to keep the locker rooms and band hall clean. Signs have been posted and an email went out on Friday explaining what will occur. Basically - keep everything clean and put instruments away properly or lose the privilege of using your band locker.
Thank you as always for your continued support! GO BIG RED!
