PARADE COMMITTEE MEETING – We’ll hold the final parade committee meeting at 7:30pm on Wed, June 28th in the school library.

DEPARTURE TIME – Please arrive at the school at 7am on Sunday, July 2nd for departure.  That will give us time to get head counts, get all the baggage loaded, answer questions, etc. before the bus leaves at 8am.

The Coatesville Red Raider Marching Band has been selected to represent the State of Pennsylvania in the 2017 National Independence Day Parade in Washington, D.C. The Marching Red Raiders are the only band from Pennsylvania selected to participate in this year’s parade, and this will be the school district’s first appearance in the annual, nationally televised event. U.S. Rep. Pat Meehan, R-7, of Chadds Ford, nominated the Coatesville group to the Parade National Selection Committee, which selects finalists based upon video recordings, director interviews, past adjudication results, and overall quality, as well as geographical, ethnic, and stylistic diversity.

With the parade just three months away, fundraising efforts are in full swing, as the cost of travel, meals, modest lodging, and events for the approximately 100 marching band members heading to D.C. will be $75,000. Band members and their supporters in the Coatesville Parents Music Club (CPMC) will host a spaghetti dinner Saturday, April 29, at the Coatesville High School cafeteria and a vendor fair on Sunday, April 30, from 12 noon to 4:00 PM at East Fallowfield Community Park. The CPMC has also set up a GoFundMe page at:

A "Go Fund Me" page has been set up to raise money

Your generous donation will help each Coatesville Band Student to cover the expenses associated with this momentous event. We need and greatly appreciate everyone's help.
