Band Bulletin #32: 4/19-4/25

We hope this bulletin finds you wrapping up Spring Break with some much needed timed away from computer screens! Yes, we would have all preferred to have been in Disney this past week, but our Band Leadership has another social activity coming your way to help keep us positive and connected. If you need a Disney fix now, check out The Ultimate Disney Movie Showdown that was created by some of our Sophomore band members! Please also make sure you see the info below about the BBHHS Fine Arts Spirit Week that kicks off Monday!

BBHHS FINE ARTS SPIRIT WEEK

We’d like to welcome everyone back from Spring Break on Monday and create some BBHHS School Spirit. The Music and Drama Departments are hosting a Virtual Spirit Week! The themes for each day are below. Feel free to participate by dressing up for each day’s theme! Please also make sure what you post is school appropriate.

To spread our Spirit Week even further on social media, let’s tag your school accounts, @bbhhsbands, @bbhhsorchestra, @BBHHSDrama, @BBHHSChoir and use #bbhhsFineArtsSocialDistanceSpirit. Make sure you take note of the points being offered. Our goal is to get Band, Choir, Drama, and Orchestra to each earn 2500 points. Let’s go!!!
