Welcome!  Here's What's Happening:

Updated 1/25/2015




Superbowl Sub Sales
We have to receive back the individual sub sale FORMS and money Wednesday 1/28 - even if there is no school. Please see instructions below:

Assuming there will be school tomorrow, we will meet in the band hallway at SHS at 6:30PM (instead of 6pm) - PLEASE NOTE THE TIME CHANGE (sorry for caps) to turn in money and forms.

In the unlikely event of school cancellation, we will meet at the trusty Firehouse on North Main Street.

Thank you to everyone for returning your individual orders last night. This was MOST helpful and I was able to place the order today at Tops - despite the Travel Ban!

One more plea for help for Reconcilers for tomorrow night - we have lost a couple of folks due to other commitments.

Also - I want to remind the students (and parents) that a student will forfeit his or her points if he/she does not MAKE the subs Sunday morning.

If you have any questions, please contact John Coleman (860) 384-9427.

Sub Sales Forms and Notes are available on the Sub Sale Fundraising page. The order form is also here.


Mohegan Sun Bus Trip
  The Bus trip will be on Saturday, 3/21 leaving from the Calendar House at 5pm and arriving back there at 1:15 am Sunday morning. Tickets are $35.00. Tickets include $15 food voucher and a $15 free bet on the Big Wheel.
For tickets or more information, please contact Tom Casey at
The Frega's will run one bus and the Kochol's will run the other bus. If we need a third the Casey's will run that.


Band Backer General Meeting
  The next band backer meeting will be held 2/4 at 7:30pm in room C301. Sub Sales and the upcoming Mohegan Sun trip will be a major topic! Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!
This is where upcoming fundraisers and band events are discussed. Want to know more? Stop by!!!


Superbowl Sub Sales
The annual Superbowl Sub Sale is over! Sandwiches will be delivered the morning of the big game on February 2.


Yard Signs
 Following the lead of many other organizations and teams at the high school we have designed a lawn sign. This sign will allow you, your family, and neighbors the ability to show their support for the Marching Band. Here is the design we have come up with:

These are two sided 18 X 24 inch signs and cost $20 each. If you are still looking to purchase one, contact Tisha and Eric Semmel at


Congratulations BKMB!!!
 5th place overall with a score of 92.45! Top CT band! The first ever Annual "Dinkles Spirit of Band Award" was presented to educators, students, parents, and boosters of the marching band best exemplifying school pride, friendship, creativity, camaraderie, and good sportsmanship on and off the field. This award went to Southington High School for Group V & VI Open!!! Eyes with Pride!!!
