Welcome Back to School! Fall 2019
Welcome back to school! We hope everyone has had a restful summer and we are now ready for a great year. The BBMS Music Boosters are excited about all the great music opportunities and events this year, and we hope all of our music parents can join us and support the boosters
The Boosters are kicking off the year with our annual fall fundraisers - Yankee Candle and Claire's Gourmet. Parents should have received information on both fundraisers in packets sent home with your music students. As always, if you prefer to donate directly to the BBMB program, you can contribute to the Giving Team. There are tabs above with information on all three fundraisers. As a reminder, the money raised in these go to directly support music activities, equipment and education for your music students. Last year we were able to provide the directors (Band, Orchestra, Choir and General Music) with $1,000 each to supplement their music programs.

Our next meeting will be in September in the Band/Orchestra room at Bonnie Branch Middle School. Look for announcements about time/date when students come back to school!
What do the Music Boosters do??
We have been helping the music programs at Bonnie Branch since the fall of 2008. The band, orchestra, and chorus programs have grown tremendously since we began. We have many more students participating in the Solo and Ensemble Fair; and many students achieved high ratings! We have 2 jazz bands now. Parents working together with our outstanding music directors have made all of this possible.
These are some of the items and activities we support:
Above all, we try to make music fun for students so that they will love it and continue to make it a part of their life... forever.
Encouraging middle school students to participate and continue in music is a great way to volunteer. Join the Boosters -- You will be amazed at how satisfying and fun it really is.
NOTE: whether you volunteer behind the scenes or on concert nights, all volunteers receive reserved seating at concerts.
