Weekend Update 11-29-20
Dear M100 Family,
Hope everyone is enjoying your last day of the Thanksgiving break. Big Thanks to the students and adults who joined us at the game this past Friday! Great job AND it was quite an exciting game - overtime and all! Only 3 more weeks till the next break! These next 3 weeks may be a sprint to the end with this next week being the busiest - but -hey- sometimes we do our best work when we have deadlines and busy schedules (I know I do)! Some NEW information and some reminders:

PART 4 CHOREOGRAPHY ONLINE (if you missed it or need a refresher)
WIND ENSEMBLE 8AM REHEARSALS STARTING 2ND SEMESTER
Just a reminder that those students who make Wind Ensemble (our most advanced ensemble) will need to report to school by 8am starting on January 25th, 2021. Our class would then run from 8am-9:30am. This has been mentioned in class for many months now. Parents - please let me know if transportation will be an issue for your family. Our current class period is only 45 minutes and this is in no way enough time for us to prepare the level of music that is appropriate and challenging for this varsity level group. As with other varsity level activities, it is instructionally appropriate and recommended that we start early so we can get the same amount of instructional time (90 minutes) as other varsity 6A level groups. Thank you.
INDIVIDUAL BAND PICTURES
If your child came in for pictures, they are available! $10 for the photo file. Please bring the order form and payment in an envelope with the child’s name and drop it in the band hall safe. Links to your child’s photo files are emailed as payments are received. Thank you! Checks can be made out to Belton Band Boosters.
