Excellent Performance Big Lake Grizzlies during your Veteran's Day Celebration! Way to honor our local heroes!


Is your child interested in learning to play piano? Mrs. Hardman offers group piano lessons through Keyboarding Club Tuesdays at 8:15 am through the year (it's already started, but late comers are always welcome!). Pick up a permission slip at the office. Any 2nd through 5th grader is welcome to come and learn! 




If your child loves to sing we would love to have them join our Choir! Choir is available to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. It is offered Wednesdays & Thursdays 8:15am-9am. If you would like to join, stop by the office to pick up a permission slip! Choir started August 21st and goes through the school year.


 Next Choir performance: Thursday December 5th at 7pm. Choir should be dressed in black & white. On December 21st the BLE Choir is encouraged to join in the Big Lake Tree Lighting Ceremony & Parade. More info to come.



Next event: Thursday December 5th at 7pm. Band should be dressed in black & white and come prepared with their instrument and music. Band students need to meet on stage at 6:30pm (or after the K-2 Concert finishes).


If your child wants to learn how to play an instrument we would love them to join our Band! Band is offered to 4th and 5th graders during the school day with the expectation that they will attend all of their evening concerts (about 2 or 3 through the year). See the link for the band info packet to decide if joining band is a good choice for your child. Instrument rentals are available but on a first-come first-serve basis so please let Mrs. Hardman know as soon as possible if you are interested in renting from the school. Band started on the 1st day of school, but if your child wants to join latecomers are still welcome! Band Information Packet



FYI - Returning Band Students: Band class is now on Day 1 instead of Day 3. See the schedule to figure out what day your sectionals meet.
