Buddy Program

The students in the O. T. Bonner Middle School band program have been very busy with the Buddy Program and Eighth Grade Band Night. First, the band’s Buddy Program officially kicked off on October 26, 2010. Through this program, sixth grade band students are partnered with seventh and eighth grade band students to receive extra help every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 2:15-2:45. Any band student can be involved, and the students really enjoy the tutoring sessions and getting to know students from other grade levels. This program also gives the seventh and eighth grade band students the opportunity to grow as musicians as they teach the other band participants.
