Good Afternoon! 

WOW! What an incredible first week of band camp!! Students, you should be very proud of all you have accomplished this week. Parents, your children are working incredibly hard!! This week was one of the most productive band camp weeks I've been a part of! Next week be ready to learn some drill and get ready for our first mini-performance! Below is the information for our performance at First Friday as well as other events to be aware of.

AMP Concert 7/31/18 - Paul Nagal has asked that I send out an email requesting workers for the AMP concert on Tuesday. They are short workers and are in need of help. Remember, AMP Concerts help lower your childs band fees. High School aged students may work as well. If you can work the AMP please email 2018BPSAMPVOLUNTEERS@gmail.com. SEND AN EMAIL WITH THE SUBJECT  "BLACK RAINBOW". List who can work, the student you will be working for, and that they attend BWHS. Those who work Tuesday will get first priority for the Luke Bryan Concert.

Thank you for reading this far. As a reward, here is a video of the wind players doing marching fundamentals. Not perfect but we are off to an AMAZING start!! GO WOLVERINES!!
