Weekly Update (4/8- 4/12)

This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!

Hello Folks!

We got a lot accomplished so far! That was 2 out of 6 weeks! 4 more to go! (How are you doing, Seniors? 🥹)

Thanks to those who participated in the Krispy Kreme Fundraiser! If you turned in money for the fundraiser, you will get a small prize for your efforts!

The exact number is sitting on my desk, but this year we profited a little over $600 from the Krispy Kreme Fundraiser.

That's under what we normally earn for this one... so we may need to look into another fundraiser that will be more profitable next year if this one continues not to yield great results for us.


Universal Trip

Please find the link to the itinerary HERE.

The itinerary will continue to be updated as more information comes out.

You can find the current itinerary and rooms list there. If there are any issues or concerns with the rooms list, PARENTS can reach out to Mrs. Ballinger. Please avoid unnecessary changes.

Please don't forget that there is a MANDATORY BAND TRIP MEETING on 4/22 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm in the BCHS Band Room.
