Football Game: Schedule is to the left.  Attire will be the same as last week, and students will be permitted to eat/drink during their third quarter break.


Competition: This week’s competition will take place at Brick Twp. HS – NOT BRICK MEMORIAL as originally stated on your calendars! Schedule for the day is on the left.

  • Attire: Students should wear long white socks, athletic shorts/pants, and their band shirt underneath their uniform.  Bring a pair of jeans to change into after we perform, as well as a sweatshirt/jacket in case it gets chilly!
  • Food: Students should bring food/money to purchase food from the concession stands for dinner (after we perform).


Travel Expectations: Students are expected to be on their best behavior as you are representing both the Raider Band and Toms River HSE. Review the conduct listed in your handbook if there is any confusion as to our expectations.

MIM Candy: We will need students to bring in candy for candy-grams that will be for sale at our home competition. Students in grades 9/10 should bring in a bag of chocolate candy, and students in grades 11/12 should bring in a bag of non-chocolate candy.
