This organization is providing musical instruction and previously used instruments to the school kids in Pontiac who no longer have music as part of their curriculum. Accent Pontiac is modeled after the nationwide musical educational program serving underprivileged communities. Our own BBHS Tri-M musical honor society has partnered with Accent Pontiac this year providing community outreach via tutoring and musical performances.

If you need to pick up your student during Advisory, please make sure you excuse them via the attendance office (248 341 5610) before noon. We are experiencing a high volume of parent/guardian calls requesting to have a student excused and picked up during Advisory and have been unable to meet the demand in an efficient manner. We cannot (except in case of an emergency) send email passes to students between 1:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.
Any time your student needs to leave during the school day, the more notice you can give in advance, the more efficient our attendance office will be able to operate.
Thank you for your help and cooperation.
