As you are likely aware, the 7th and 8th grade members of the Barber Music Ensembles (band, chorus, and orchestra) wear formal uniforms for all of their performances (on and off campus) in the 7th and 8th grades. The Barber Music Department has a wonderful reputation and it is our belief that all of the musicians should “look as great as they sound.” These uniforms are purchased at the beginning of the 7th grade year and are worn for their performances until your student graduates from Barber in the 8th grade.
The uniforms consist of a long, black formal dress for the ladies and tuxedo shirts, pants, cummerbunds, and bow ties for the gentlemen.
Tuxedos and dresses cost $64.00 and are able to be used through the end of the student’s 8th grade year Students will be sized by a group of parent volunteers.* If you would like to assist in the uniform process- measuring, hemming, head uniform parent, etc. please email your ensemble directors.
*Once you receive your uniform in November, the hem with need to be altered to the correct length for your student’s height, as they do not come in pre-hemmed.
How do I pay? In order to pay for your student’s uniform send a check written out to BARBER MIDDLE SCHOOL with your student’s name and the word ‘uniform’ in the subject area. Your student will obtain a white money envelope and submit the money in to the black money collection boxes found all around the school.
When is the payment due? Payment is due by THURSDAY, SEPT 10th.
Is there a way that I may donate to a needy family? Yes, just add on the amount that you would like to donate. You can indicate this intention on the bottom of the check.
When will I receive the uniform? Typically uniforms arrive at the beginning of November. Once you receive it, you will need to get it hemmed to the correct length for your student’s height.
