NEW INFORMATION AND UPDATES

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.

M100 REHEARSAL SCHEDULE CHANGES…AGAIN

As luck would have it…as soon as I adjust every rehearsal through September to account for the Wet Bulb, we have a full week of normal rehearsals and the extra 15 minutes were not needed. I have changed all of the dates on the calendar back to normal. In the event that we must utilize travel time during our rehearsal, I will send out a Remind with an updated ending time for that day. Thank you for your patience.

Attire will be the M100 Summer Uniform (M100 jersey, tennis shoes, black M100 shorts).
