NEW INFORMATION AND UPDATES

8/21 CLINICIAN REHEARSAL

Tomorrow, we will be inviting Bob Chreste to work with our band program. Mr. Chreste has multiple years of state marching band experience as a former band director, and is currently the Assistant Brass Caption Head with the Bluecoats Drum and Bugle Corps. We are very fortunate to have Mr. Chreste out to work with us, so it is imperative that we all attend this rehearsal on time and ready to work!


ELIGIBILITY MATTERS!

ALL STUDENTS MUST BE ACADEMICALLY ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN UIL EVENTS. Even though Belton High School operates on 9 week grading periods, our first eligibility check will occur at the end of the first 6 weeks on Friday, September 22, 2023. ANY STUDENT WITH A GRADE BELOW A 70 IN AN ON LEVEL CLASS WILL BECOME INELIGIBLE THE FOLLOWING WEEK. NO FOOTBALL GAMES, NO MARCHING CONTESTS. The success of our marching season depends heavily on students taking care of business in their classes. Parents and guardians, please check on student grades in Skyward periodically to ensure everyone maintains eligibility.
