Getting Ready for Band

By now, you should have received a band welcome packet personalized for your son or daughter outlining some important information, such as supplies and materials, Band Registration, and contact information.  Please email Mr. Pulley if you did not receive this message.  Remember that all listed supplies and materials are due by the second day of school next year, which will be Thursday, August 18.  We suggest you start to purchase the needed supplies now because there will be delays if you wait too long, plus you can spread out buying these items over the summer to make it more affordable.  If you need more information, be sure to check out the Supplies & Materials page of our website here: beltonmsband.org/supplies-materials

Next, make plans to attend our Band Registration on Monday & Tuesday, August 1 & 2 in the Belton MS Band Hall from 8am-4pm (come-and-go).  This will allow you to fill out all of the required paperwork at the same time, get your student a locker, and meet the directors and see the facilities face-to-face to be prepared for school to start.  If you will not be in town during that time, be sure to email Mr. Pulley (crpulley@beltonmsband.org) in July so he can send you an online registration checklist.  

Also, be sure to mark Thursday, August 11 down on your calendar for our New Parent Meeting from 5:30-6:30pm in the Belton MS Band Hall.  There you will learn the inner workings of our program, director expectations, and answer any and all questions you have to help your child be successful in Band!

Lastly, if you find yourself confused this summer about anything related to Band, be sure to reach out via email or phone/text at 254-226-6179.  Have a great summer!

Wednesday’s Beginning Band Contest

Please note this information is only for eligible members of the Beginner’s Ensemble:

Please click here to see the details for Wednesday’s Temple College Contest that will take place during school.  Students will need to arrive to school that morning already dressed in their band uniform, which is their band uniform shirt tucked into jeans with closed-toed shoes and gentlemen should wear a belt.  They will be excused from periods 1-6, but are still responsible for any missed school work.  

Our performance takes place at 11am, and is free and open to the public so come and watch the Beginners at their first ensemble contest!  We will perform in the Mary Alice Marshall Performing Arts Center (PAC), and campus maps can be found here for your reference.  Please have your student bring $6 for lunch at CiCi’s Pizza by this Monday.  This makes it much easier when we arrive to get everyone through the line to the buffet. 

Student may bring a change of regular school clothes if they wish, and will have time to change out of their uniform once we return to school after lunch.  We will follow the same performance rubric for this major grade, including being Punctual, Prepared, and Disciplined.  We are excited that Beginners get to finally return to Temple College for this contest after a 3-year hiatus due to the pandemic.  Please wish us luck as we make the final preparations for this contest!
