Middle School Large Group Contest

This Thursday, April 3, is our BEC middle school large group contest! Here’s the basic facts:

WHAT: BEC Middle School Large Group Contest
WHERE: Chester school, Chester, SD
WHEN: Thursday, April 3, 2014 – students will attend part of 1st period class and will then travel to Chester from school; no early arrival necessary!
WHO: All 6th through 8th grade students (the 6th grade band, 7/8 band, and middle school chorus all have performances throughout the day)
WHY: To show our talents and our efforts as a school, receive feedback from professionals, and work towards improving our music for our concert on May 1, 2014

Students will need to bring their instruments and music, a small amount of money for lunch (concession stand will be open with pizza and other items – don’t need more than $10 to eat nicely!), and their respectful and responsible selves.

Students will wear appropriate concert attire. This means dress pants or khakis, skirts or dresses for women, shirts/ties or polos for men, and nice dress blouses/tops for women. NO DENIM! Colored denim skinny pants can be worn, but they must be dressy, not messy! We represent our school and our music program, so we want to bring our best, even when dressing for the occasion.

7/8 Band: 10:40am
MS Chorus: 12:55pm
6 Band: 2:00pm

Students will return before busses are sent out, so there does not need to be any special arrangement for transportation before or after school.

If you want to attend the contest, please come a few minutes early so that if the schedule is running early you don’t miss the performance.

Thanks for the support!

Fruit Delivery Date!

If you purchased fruit through the band this year, we’ll be delivering next week!

Fruit will come in on December 17, at which time we will sort out all the orders and distribute to salespeople. If your child (grades 7 through 12) sold fruit, please pick up your orders between 8AM and 4PM on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday (17, 18, 19 December). You can also pick up the items during Tuesday night’s basketball game. Please contact Mr. Johnson or Mr. Jacobs to gain access to the music room.

Thanks very much for your support!
