            We have listed the skills that we hope that each BGJHS student will be able to attain by the end of the school year. It may seem overwhelming, but we will easily reach these goals and perhaps reach some others. We will start playing in the method books on Wednesday, August 11th. You may bring a check to school made out to Royal Music Company for the amount listed or you may purchase your book at an area music store. Please bring correct change or a check. All other music will be provided by the school.
 
*All Band students will be issued a combination lock for their Band Locker. Students will be responsible for this lock until the end of the year. There will be a $5 replacement fee for any missing locks.
