Please note this message is intended for 7th and 8th grade band students only:
This Thursday, October 15 we will be having our first band event of the 2020-2021 school year! Our 7th and 8th grade band students will be observing a rehearsal and performance of the Belton HS Marching 100 (M100) in Tiger Stadium. Students will need to arrive at the BMS Band Hall at 5pm. No instruments or uniforms are necessary for this event. We will then walk over as a large group to Tiger Stadium to watch. Masks will be required to be worn by students, parent chaperones, and directors, and social distancing guidelines will be in effect.
Students will also be observing proper concert etiquette guidelines by not talking or disrupting the viewing of the rehearsal and performance, and they will be provided a bottle of water to stay hydrated. This gives our students the opportunity to observe the high performance level of the high school band, and gives them a glimpse into what it’s like to be part of the M100, a goal we have for all Belton MS Band students. Afterwards, we will walk back to BMS and parents can pick up their student in the BMS Bus Loop (staff parking lot) by 6:30pm.
We do realize that other events, such as a girls’ volleyball game, will be occurring at the same time as this event. If your student has a conflict during our event, please email their director and let us know no later than this Wednesday, October 14 so that we don’t count them as Unexcused for their absence. See our Band Handbook on our website for more details.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns, and thank you for your support!
