Bullard High School is located in Fresno, California, and is a member of Fresno Unified School District. Boasting the largest marching band & colorguard in the district, we are over 150 members strong! Our membership is supported by the Bullard Band Backers, a non-profit parent/guardian group responsible for the financial and organizational well-being of the band and colorguard.

BAND & COLORGUARD PARENT SECTION MEETINGS:
 
Welcome to another AWESOME year with the Bullard High School Marching Band & Colorguard!

Every year we conduct two in depth informational meetings for parents.  At these meetings, the Handbook and participation forms are distributed.  We do require that all parents attend one of these two mandatory meetings.  If you can't attend the section meeting that you're student participates in, then you must attend the other meeting.

In order for students to participate in all band activities, these forms must completed and returned by Thursday, August 28, (First football game is the following night!).  You can only receive these forms at these meetings.

If you cannot attend either meeting, you must meet with the Band Directors personally by Thursday, August 28.  Please contact them asap to make the appointment.

Colorguard and percussion      Thursday, August 21, 6:15 pm
Wind (rest of the band)             Tuesday, August 26, 6:15 pm


These meetings will be held in the Bullard Theater.  Band & Colorguard students may also attend, but not required.

CURRENT FUNDRAISERS



FIRST KNIGHT OUT OF THE SEASON: Our next KNIGHT OUT will be at

JAMBA JUICE FUNDRAISER: We have kicked off our first Jamba Juice fundraiser!

It's good for a Buy One get One FREE for any Jamba Juice smoothie!  Cost is $10 per card and $5 is credited back to your individual fundraising account.  Order forms were passed out yesterday.  Additional forms & envelopes are available in the band room.  Help raise some COOL CASH for YOUR Bullard High School Band & Colorguard!

Deadline for payments and orders:  Monday, August 25





RECYCLING PROGRAM: 
We will be collecting cans and plastic bottles for recycling throughout the marching season.  NO GLASS!  

The students will do most of the work.  We will have different sections responsible for different drop off days.  Specific dates for recycling will be sent out closer to band camp, so for now, please save all your cans and plastic bottles.  It would be very helpful if you could separate cans from bottles and make sure that all the containers are empty.  The funds raised will go into the general fund.  We will also need a few parents supervising and assisting in transporting the recyclables to a recycling center.  If you have a truck and you are willing to help please call or text Katarina Ingels - (559) 779-1116
