Whistler Payment Past Due
The 2nd Whistler payment of $200 is now past due and there are a large number of students who have not paid. Please contact Jen Witeck to determine if your student is one of them.
Please be advised the third and final Whistler payment of $177 for students and $150 for chaperones is due on
Thursday, January 18.
Urgent Whistler Request - We still need two more chaperones. Without two more males or one couple volunteering, the Whistler trip is in danger of not meeting district requirements and being canceled. Cost is $450 per chaperone. Contact Mr. James or Jen Witeck immediately with questions or to sign up.
Looking Ahead - Wind Ensemble WMEA Conference Performance in Yakima
The Wind Ensemble has the honor of performing during the WMEA Concert Hour the morning of
February 16, 2018. Students will depart for Yakima at
Thursday, Feb 15 at 4 p.m. and will return to BHS at approximately
on Friday. Thanks to a generous contribution from the BPA Booster Board, the travel costs for this trip have been significantly reduced. For your convenience, a fee of only $27 per student has been included in the final Whistler payment to cover the Yakima hotel, group dinner and breakfast costs.
We need 8 chaperones (4 female / 4 male) to join us for the trip at no cost. Please contact Jen Witeck to volunteer.

Not only are the videos great
