DRESSING OUT FOR PE
Band PE Class

P.E. classes require students to "dress out", What is needed for a BSR member for "dressing out"?

  • Name tag: The name tag contains dot sheets and chips which are used to learn new drill (all rehearsals)
  • Member shirt: Required only for Thursday night rehearsals (Thursdays only)

Per department policy, students don't earn grade credit when not "dressed out". The P.E. department policies are used for Band P.E. as well.

HOME GAME CONCESSIONS
Donations and Volunteers Needed

This is a big fund raising event for the BSRIMA! We are allowed to operate the "away side" snack building for all home games. Volunteers are needed to work the concession building for the home game this Friday. Donations help the BSRIMA multiply your small donation into funds that provide instructors, services, and equipment for the band program.

Donations:

  • Flutes: Nacho Cheese (large can) or No Bean Chili (large can), or Jalapeno peppers
  • Clarinets: A box of wrapped candy (sour or chocolate)
  • Saxophones: Gatorade
  • High Brass: Variety Pack Chips (spicy sell the best)
  • Low Brass: 12 pack canned soda (no diet)
  • Percussion: Water
  • Auxiliary: Cookie or cracker Variety Packs

Once again, the BSRIMA can multiply the value of your donation by 50% or more!

BSR ALTERNATES
Alternate Policy

The first alternates are those students that do not attend band camp, or qualify a spot. Eventually the alternates are those members with the worst attendance after school starts. Alternates still attend and march at all rehearsals (Band PE class), and play at all school performances.

  • Alternates march at home football games
  • Alternates perform at noon rallies and assemblies
  • Extra credit can be earned by attending competition performances and helping move equipment to warm up, field, and to the trailers
  • Alternates can earn a permanent position with outstanding attendance and marching up to standard

CHAPERONS
Needed at Most Events

Chaperons are needed for most events. It is very important to have at lease one parent available to help out in the event that the teacher needs help when at an event. There are times when a parent needs to stay with students when a director needs to take care of a problem, meet with judges, or any number of other things.

EXAMPLE: All winter guard shows need a chaperon as Mr. Jackson typically takes the floor and cart in his truck. The parent needs to ride the bus and check the students in at the show if the truck has not arrived in time.

Sign up to be a chaperon by clicking on the multicolored hand next to the event.
