September 27th and 28th will be our annual Band Pictures for the Blue Darter Band. The photographer is with us in all classes on these days. There is NO MAKE UP DATE.

October….

Our schedule for the month of October is a little different and will need for each member and family to plan ahead for what is coming regarding our calendar events. Our two home ball games are on Thursday’s…. October 6th (Olympia/Homecoming) and October 27th (Evans/Senior Night) as these weeks have Friday Holidays. At this time we are not planning on using either of those Friday mornings for a BDMB rehearsal to make a big push to get our show ready, however, we may need to schedule some time on October 28th – Morning – to ensure we are ready for the rest of the season. We have a Full Band Trip to Lake Brantley on October 14th and a Pep Band to Lake Mary on October 21st. OCTOBER 22nd is a major day for our BDMB as we participate in the West Side Showcase at West Orange High. This event is new for us this year and will serve as an unbelievable opportunity to not only get valuable feedback for our performance, but also to allow our students to pnior the work of all of the bands on the west side of town, also allowing for time for students to get to hand out together! October is a power packed month for the BDMB and we look forward to showcasing our incredible growth and energy throughout! PLAN AHEAD NOW! #iegyb
