The 8th grade band will be performing in our 2nd annual Fall Concert. Students and audience members are encouraged to dress in costume for this concert! Prizes will be given for the best dressed. Students NOT wishing to dress in costume can wear their regular band uniform (maroon band polo, black pants, tall black socks, black belt, black shoes).
Student Costume Regulations: Be creative and have fun! But remember costumes need to be in accordance with school dress down day. No under garments are allowed to be visible, no spaghetti straps, sleeveless shirts, midriffs, or shorts and skirts that are too short. You can make any costume stay within the parameters of dress code by adding a shirt underneath or leggings to a costume. Do not attempt to wear anything that could be considered provocative. Students will face disciplinary actions, be asked to leave and receive a zero for the performance.
Masks or fake teeth/fangs are NOT going to be allowed due to the restraint over eyes & mouth. Faces can be decorated with paint or make-up; HOWEVER, make-up needs to stay off of mouth area and hands. Anything that can damage an instrument should not be worn; therefore, any costume that is bloody or gory should be avoided. Costumes that have flesh wounds, fake blood, guts, brains, or other oozing items should not be worn to the concert.
Remember: this is a concert for your family and for children so you don’t have to be scary! If you need help with a costume or want the band director to approve your costume ahead of time, please ask!
Costumes are to be worn to the concert only, not to school during the school day.
