8th Grade Band Students:
We will be using lyres (flip folder music holders) for the upcoming pep rally.
The following instruments are required to have lyres:
Lyres range from $6 to $15 depending on the instrument. Students will be fitted for a lyre tomorrow (Friday) and notified of the price, and then will be given one on Monday. Students should bring payment on Monday if possible. They will not be penalized for not bringing payment, but it will be added to their student account to be paid later.
Please refer to the BMS Band Policies and Procedures (Handbook) for more info on required supplies.
Thanks for a great first day!
Today, your band student received a band folder with their beginning of the year forms. There are 2 stapled-together pages that everybody has and needs to return to us ASAP. Some students also have an Instrument Repair and Maintenance Agreement form if they will be using a school-owned instrument. This should be brought back ASAP as well. These forms should only be turned in to the band hall, not the front office or any other teacher.
One of the pages is a Handbook Acknowledgement and Agreement form. We will discuss our handbook in class, but please note that the Handbook is available here on our webpage (below or on the "Forms and Files" tab), and a hard copy can be made available upon request.
Students should begin bringing instruments to school beginning tomorrow (August 16th.) They should come to the Band Hall before 1st period to put it in their locker. Their locker number is on their folder.
Students new to Band must have an instrument available by Friday of this week. If you are unable to obtain the appropriate instrument, the student will be removed from Band and placed in another elective.
For all others, instruments must be here at the Band Hall ready to play by Thursday of this week.
Thanks, and let's have a great year!
We're excited for the 23-24 school year!

Students do not need their instruments on the 1st day of school. Students will receive instructions on when and where to bring their instruments during the first class.
We're looking forward to seeing you!
