The Bartlett High School Marching Band competed in Bands of America (BOA) Grand National Championships at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana this past weekend. Ninety-two bands from all across the nation competed in the preliminary round over a two-day period. Bartlett placed 23rd in prelims and therefore advanced to semifinals. In the semifinals round, Bartlett placed 25th among the very best band programs in the country!

This was the first time in history that Bartlett has attended BOA Grand Nationals. Bartlett's goal was to be Bands of America Grand National Semifinalists by 2028, and over the weekend the program reached this milestone five years early. This is the 2nd time the Bartlett High School Band has made history this season. In October, Bartlett won the gold medal at the Bands of America Memphis Regional.

We are so proud of our students and their hard work this season. We are also grateful to our community and our Bartlett band family for all of their support!

Our Panther Playhouse invites you to their upcoming production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee! Performances will be November 3-11. You can purchase your tickets by visiting

Here is a little about the play:
Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee tells the story of an eclectic group of six adolescents vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves a champion! At least the losers get a juice box.


Everyone is invited to attend our BCS Jr. High Honor Choir Concert this Thursday, October 26 at Bartlett United Methodist Church, admission is free.
