March is Music In Our Schools Month!

This designation by the National Association for Music Education helps us celebrate the amazing things that go on in Music Education. Ballston Spa CSD has been designated a Best Community for Music Education and we have a lot going on in March to show you why! 

March 4- 9 is our annual Music Spirit Week! This is sponsored and organized by our BSHS Chapter of the Tri-M International Music Honor Society.

Each day we have a different way the students can participate:

Monday is Dress Like a Music Meme day.

Tuesday is Rainbow day- each section of the Band Chorus and Orchestra is assigned a color to wear for our annual Rainbow picture.

Wednesday is an A Day which means Dress Sharp Day! (A#)

Thursday is a B Day which means Dress Flat Day (Bb)  Music Savvy people know the connection between A# and Bb!!

Friday is Music Logo Wear Day! Show your B-Spa Music pride and wear your music shirts!
