Next Week’s Band Registration

Remember our Band Registration/Everything Day is happening at the Belton MS Band Hall next Tuesday and Wednesday, August 3 and 4 from 8:00am-4:00pm (come-and-go).  This is an opportunity to get all of the paperwork done and fees paid well before school starts so students can get to playing on their instruments sooner!  New: Click here to find your way and the map to the Belton MS Band Hall.

Students should bring their instrument, supplies, and materials to have it checked over by a director to make sure they have everything correct, plus they can put it in their band locker at that time.  All of these items are due at school no later than Thursday, August 19, which is the second day of school.  If you need another copy of the instrument-specific list, please visit the Supplies & Materials page of our website here:

We have already received some messages that students and/or parents will be out of town during these days, and we will be sending you the checklist to be completed online this week – this is also due by August 19.  If you haven’t already let Mr. Pulley know, please send an email so we can get your student registered for Band.

Thank you to the parents and students who have volunteered to help run this event, and we will be sending you more information soon.

Band Registration & Supplies

We hope you are having a great summer!  Just a reminder about our Band Registration/Everything Day on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 3 and 4 in the Belton MS Band Hall from 8:00am-4:00pm.  Please make plans now to attend this come-and-go event once, and mark it on your family calendar at home.  Instrument and uniform fees can be paid at this time, as well as filling out all of the required paperwork.

Students can also bring their instrument, supplies, and materials to have it checked over by a director to make sure they have everything correct.  This registration is also designed to provide parents detailed information about our events and performances throughout the year, parent chaperone help, and the inner workings of our program.  This is also the perfect time to meet the directors face-to-face and to answer any questions that you might have.

Remember all band instruments, supplies, and materials are due by the second day of school, which will be Thursday, August 19 this year.  If you need another copy of the instrument-specific list, please visit the Supplies & Materials page of our website here:

If you will be out of town during Band Registration, kindly email Mr. Pulley to let us know and we will send you the information you need to get your student registered for Band.  Thank you for your help so we can start the new school year off on the right foot!

Alma Mater and Fight Song Recordings

As we take time to relax and rejuvenate this summer, we are also planning for next school year! All students new to Belton MS (especially incoming 6th graders) will have the opportunity to meet the staff, walk their schedule, and more at Tiger Camp, scheduled for Monday, August 16 from 4-6pm at Belton Middle School. In preparation for this event, we recorded our Alma Mater and Fight Song to be shared publicly and can be heard by clicking here. Enjoy your summer!

Parents Visiting Friday’s Contest Performance

Please note the the following message is for eligible students and parents of the Symphonic Band and Beginner’s Ensemble only:

Since Friday’s contest is free and open to public at the Belton HS PAC, the high school principal wanted me to pass along the instructions for parents who wish to attend this performance:

Parking will be tight, but parents can park in either the front parking lot or the baseball parking lot.  Please do not park in a spot that has been painted – these are reserved for students.  We may get a map that I will send out later this week.  Parents will need to enter and exit through the PAC/Gym doors off the main student parking lot.

Symphonic Band will perform at 12:20pm, and the Beginner’s Ensemble will perform at 2:30pm.  All parents are welcome to attend.

Instrument Check-In

This message is only for parents of band students who play a school-owned instrument:

As we get closer to the end of this school year, we need to have all school-owned instruments (including home instruments) brought back to school no later than Wednesday, June 2

We also still have some students/parents who have not finished paying the rest of the usage fee.  Please take care of this by this date as well by paying via cash or check made out to BMS with a valid phone number.  The front office can accept these payments as well if that is more convenient.

We will inspect each instrument and decide if it needs to go to the shop for summer repair/flush cleaning, or if it can be checked out to a student for the summer.  We do not charge a fee for instruments to be checked out over the summer.  If you would like to bring back home instruments earlier, we will start accepting these starting next Monday, May 24.  If it’s more convenient for you to bring the instrument back during the school day, feel free to just drop it off in the front office anytime during normal school hours.

If your student would like to have an instrument checked out for the summer, please email Mr. Pulley and we will do our best to accommodate this request.  This will be done on a first come, first serve basis.  Thank you for your help as start to close out this school year!
