Band Notes


Welcome to the BSMS Page on!

If this is your first time viewing this page, THANK YOU! I hope to update the BSMS portion of this website periodically throughout the year. Please feel free to use this as a tool to gain information inside of your student's class.

November and this past week were again VERY successful times for our entire program. Great job by all and thank you families for supporting your students! 

6th Grade families should now be connected to our Charms program. We are around half-way through training students how to submit online Practice Logs. It is our intent to have ALL students switch to electronic submission of practice sheets no later than the 3rd Trimester. To provide an accommodation to those who may not have direct access to internet or devices at home, I will be allowing students to submit their practice times for the current week during class via my computer or a computer lab during their lunch hour. Students need only to ask to take advantage of this resource, but I will not force them to do this. It is still their responsibility to submit their practice times. 

6th Grade families are also encouraged to check out the 6th Grade Band Subpage for information concerning Switch Instruments. This intent sheet will be due no later than December 22nd.


Thursday, February 8th: RMS/BMS Pre-Festival Concert featuring the BSMS Jazz Band.

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at or call me at 616-669-7750 (ext. 17322).

Thank you and have a VERY Happy Holiday Season!
