Baldwin Street Middle School


Welcome to the Baldwin Street Middle School Bands page!

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!


This year has started very strong! I would like to encourage each family to check out the course guidelines on your band's subpage. This will serve as a great reference for your year!

Practice Requirement
The practice requirement for 6th grade is active. Students will be expected to practice 100 minutes at home per week. This can be broken down at your discretion, but the suggestion is 20 minutes per day, Sunday through Thursday. On each of these days, students are preparing for the next day's rehearsal, however it is ultimately up to the schedules of the students and families. Please let me know if there are questions regarding this!

The practice requirement for 7th grade is also active. Students will be expected to practice 60 minutes per week and can submit logs via paper logs or Charms. 

Save the Dates!

We encourage you to check out members of the BMS Band Family at the following events:

- October 12th: Mr. Jacobs Takes a Plunge (many, many times) at Urban Hayday!
- October 18th: BMS 8th Grade Band performs w/ HHS Marching Band at PreGame
- October 22nd: Beginning Band/HS Jazz Band Concert

Other Information... 
On each band's subpage, you will find info for starting Scrip fundraising. Parents/students can use Scrip monies to pay for band-related activities during Middle and High School such as our State Capitol performance, Cedar Point trip, Marching Band, Winter Drum Line, Winter Color Guard, and the HS Disney Trip. 

We HIGHLY suggest that if your student will be entering HS band that you start this account NOW. There are multiple families that started in middle school and have not paid a dime out-of-pocket for Marching Band Dues! Thank you Jen Alberda for putting this document together!

Please make sure to LIKE the HUDSONVILLE BANDS FaceBook Page as well for up-to-date information on our program as a whole.

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at zjacobs@hpseagles.net or call me at 616-669-7750 (ext. 3303).

Thank you and best wishes!
