This is event is our official Kick Off to the Fall 2019 BDMB! This event is for both parents and students. We will collect forms (below), fees (via SchoolPay only for 19-20!), and have volunteer sign ups for our upcoming season. This session is defined to be a simple one-stop-shop to better help get the year off the ground and running!
We will begin with a brief general session to welcome everyone back, offer an overview on communication and information about the program, then, proceed to stations to turn in the various forms and info as needed. Some forms are now via Google Forms and can be completed NOW! The Uniform-Financial form is a “Type & Print” for that you can complete at home, however, we will have paper copies available on Sunday afternoon.
SCHOOLPAY is now ready for you to pay ahead! Visit the Blue Darter Band page via the SchoolPay website and you can pay now! If you have any questions regarding payments, please visit our Band Booster Contact Page and reach out to the Committee Chair for the area that can best serve you!
ALL MEMBERS need to fill this out so we can update our Charms Student/Parent information.
This may be redundant for some members, however, this ensures we have correct, up-to-date information for both the student and all parents involved in your education! Please take five minutes and fill it out!
