News From the Band Room


Week #9

Hi Folks - This past Friday we celebrated all of the seniors and their parents at halftime. Thank you to all of the seniors for 4 years of dedication to the Raider Marching Band! If your senior did not get his/her poster they may pick them up from Mr. Fair at school.

We are entering Week #9 of the season and we will be away this Friday for the football game against Annville-Cleona. Report time is 4:45pm, inspection is 5:00pm, and departure at 5:15pm. Students may stay after school and the boosters will be providing a meal.

With another win this past Friday night, the possibility of going to a playoff game on November 2nd or 9th is becoming a greater possibility. It will be depend on where we finish in the top 10 of the section which will determine if we have a game on the 2nd or the 9th. Again, I realize these dates were not on the schedule from the beginning of the year, but it is always a possibility to go to playoff games. Please try to keep these nights free in case we need to attend a game.

The band banquet is rapidly approaching. The banquet will be held on Saturday, November 3rd at the Neptune Fire Hall in Richland. Please see more information on the banquet below.

Senior Night!
