    What’s Happening


    RED RAIDER MARCHING BAND
    Parents, please make sure your student is getting these emails as well.  Several students have said they didn't know about these emails and therefore, didn't know about important band details.  Facebook and our website are other resources you can use to stay up to date.

    BAND DUES
    This is the 3rd installment of band dues.  Dues for October 18th are $20.

    HELP NEEDED!
    There is a desperate need to finish inventory of past season color guard and Indoor Drumline uniforms and materials, as well as clean up the storage room. Have some time to give? Join other parents this coming Monday and Wednesday evening in the storage room to help! They will be there from 6:30pm until pickup time and any help is appreciated - you do not need to be there the entire time!

    STUDENT DRESS CODE AT COMPETITIONS
    Students are required to be in all black under their band uniform unless they are wearing their full warm-up jacket and pants (weather permitting).  That means a black t-shirt (can wear former black band shirts, black-out shirts, etc.) and black shorts (not tan, red, blue, etc.)  The shorts for both male and females should not be restrictive and be an appropriate length.


    PAYPAL - STUDENT ACCOUNTS AND DONATIONS 
    The Coatesville Parents Music Club (CPMC) makes every effort to support the marching band and all if its activities as best it can. However, there are some fees that need to be passed onto the students and their families. CPMC recognizes that families need different options for paying for these fees such as participating in fund raisers or various options to make payments. CPMC has set-up the ability to accept payments through Paypal by using your own Paypal account or by using a debit or credit card. Of course, cash and check will continue to be acceptable forms of payment.
