Hello BPD Parents,

We are only a few weeks from the beginning of Summer Band Camp.  With that, comes the beginning of lots of planning and events for BPD.  Below are list of upcoming events and a few fundraisers we have on the books for end of Summer/Fall.

Hello ALL BPD Parents and Students,

Happy New Year to each of you!  We are deep into planning our winter show for the upcoming season.   It is getting exciting for the season to begin.  Below is VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

As you all know, our next fundraiser is ONLY 4 WEEKS AWAY.  Mr Spoon sent out a Remind 101 to all parents to save the date:  Saturday, February 3rd.   This will be an ALL DAY event.  We will be co-hosting this event with the Boswell ColorGuard.  Each group has the opportunity to make over $3,000 in one day, but we will NEED ALL PARENTS/STUDENT TO PARTICIPATE.  For your student, this event is MANDATORY.
I have attached the sign-up genius.  Please review the areas of opportunities and sign up in an area that you can help.
Our goal is that this event will be something that both groups can use ongoing after this year, as long as we are successful.
