Friday's Football Game

posted Aug 23, 2017, 4:37 PM by Randy Bennett   [ updated Aug 23, 2017, 4:37 PM ]

Short Story: The Band Participation in the BHS V. Edison Game this Friday is cancelled. We will not be going to the game.

Long Story:
The weather is predicted to be hot enough to push the JV game out an hour, delaying the Varsity game to at least an 8:30 kickoff, and transportation had scheduled the band with buses that needed to return students by 9:30. The band wouldn't even be able to be there through first quarter. We try to be at as many football games as possible to support our awesome team, but sometimes schedules collide in a district this gigantic.

We are still looking forward to performing the show for parents at our back to school BBQ tomorrow, and will be putting on a full spectacle during halftime at the first game in the stadium on September 29th! Mark your calendars for a super special performance then.

Welcome Back BBQ! This Thursday

posted Aug 23, 2017, 4:20 PM by Randy Bennett

     Invite you to our annual Back to School BBQ! Come visit with other parents, and enjoy free cheeseburgers! While there, Mr. Bennett will discuss important dates, the boosters will have a short meeting to vote on the proposed budget, and there’s going to be a sneak peak at the marching band show! Please come and see what’s in store for your student this year!
