  • Message regarding DRESS CODE for MARCHING REHEARSALS

    Hello Taft Raider Band,

    Summer band is just a few days away- I hope you are all practicing hard and preparing for another great season with the TRB. This season, we are instituting a slightly different dress code for all marching rehearsals - summer band included. 

     The following will be required for ALL marching rehearsals:

    -White T-Shirt (NEW)

    -Athletic Gym Shorts (Jeans, cargo pants, long pants are not acceptable)

    -Tennis/Athletic Shoes (No flip flops, sandals, high tops, etc)

    -Red Water Jug

     This is similar to our dress code that we used for all stadium rehearsals last year. This will help the staff read the forms better and unify us as a band. 

     Thanks for Making it Happen - see you in a few days!

     -Taft Band Staff

    Hello Raiders,
        Registration Day is coming up and every student and parent must attend.  This is the day that you will be paying part of the band fees as well as being fitted for some items.  Again, IT IS MANDATORY THAT EACH STUDENT AND A PARENT ATTEND.  Due to vendors not being able to make the two day event, we had to consolidate into one day.  We will have Friday, the 31st of July,  as our one day to attend registration so please make plans now.  We will be in the Cafeteria this year.  Each class will need to come in at specific times.  Please see below:

    9:00am - 9:45am - Seniors
    9:45am-10:30am - Juniors
    10:30am - 11:15am - Sophomores
    11:15am - 1:00pm - 9th Graders

    Please come at your exact time shown above...yes, the one time we don't want band kids to show up early...crazy, I know! We will not be fitting for uniforms at this time, but we will need each student to come in athletic shorts and a t-shirt so we can fit for other items.  We will not use a band polo this year, but will use a "Raider T" shirt for contest as well as matching shorts under the uniform.  Each student in the program will need to be fitted for these new items. Upperclassmen, please bring your marching shoes so we can see if you are needing a new pair to purchase.  They will be checked by a staff member. Parents, please come with cash, check or card for payment of about $187 for that day.  If you have multiple students in the band, feel free to pick one time to bring your students.

    New York City Trip!!
    Yes, we are still headed to the Big Apple for Spring Break!  We want the TRB to be well represented in New York.  The trip will include:  airfare, transportation in the city, hotel stay, Broadway Show, Manhattan tour, Central Park tour, Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island tour, Metropolitan Museum of Art (the MET), 2 meals per day,China Town/Little Italy, performance in New York, etc!!  This is not a trip to miss.  Please plan to attend, Raider Band.   The Band program will not be taking payments as that will go to the TMF Travel Company and the first payment of $100.00 (non refundable) is due September 14th. More details at Registration Day!  

    Leadership - As a reminder we will see you all Wednesday!  Bring a sack lunch for an 8:00sm-5:00pm day.  Lots-o-fun and learnin' to be had!

    See ya real soon!
    - Mrs. Stevenson
