Please note this message is only intended for students and parents of our Beginning Band:
We wanted to make you aware of our upcoming Holiday Concert at the Belton High School Performing Arts Center (PAC) on Monday, December 7 in the evening. Finally, our students get to perform live at their first band concert!! We will give you definite times later, but we wanted to make sure this date was marked on your calendar at home since we cannot recreate a public performance.
All students who have paid for their band uniform t-shirt should have received one by now. If your child has not yet received theirs, kindly send $10 with them to school this week. At the concert, students will wear their band shirt tucked into jeans with closed-toed shoes that serves as their band uniform. Yes, tucking their shirt in is part of a well-kept appearance for our performances, and is required for our uniform for all of our students.
Young gentlemen will need to wear a belt. If your son does not have one, please use this upcoming Thanksgiving break to get them one for their band uniform that they will wear throughout this year. Again, this is a required part of our band uniform. Young ladies need to tuck in their shirt as well, but do not need to wear a belt.
In order to prepare for our upcoming performance, we will be having 2 required group rehearsals at school so we can put all 8 of our beginner classes together to perform as one Beginner’s Ensemble. These will occur Thursday and Friday, December 3 and 4 from 3:00pm to 4:30pm both days. These rehearsals will start at the beginning of our 8th period STRIPES class and continue after school until 4:30pm. Parents will need to pick up their student at the bus loop by the side awning entrance near the Cafeteria at that time.
We will need all of our remote virtual learners to come to school and physically participate in both of these rehearsals in the Band Hall if they plan on performing at our concert. Please contact us if this is not the case.
Thank you for your support, and let us know if you have any questions.
