Taylorsville Dayzz!

Our Marching Grizzlies came out in fine form for the Taylorsville Dayzz parade.  After a change of directors and not very much time, they stepped up to give their best during the parade.
It's a great day to be a Grizzly!  Rawr!

Not to be left out, our color guard staff, plus Mr. Matthews got into the parade by kicking right along with the rest of the band.

  • The kids will have water before, during, and after the parade.
  • Don't forget the sunscreen!
  • Have fun!

Also, the kids will have a shortened practice from 7:00-8:45 Friday morning.  Summer shirts and marching shoes (for those who ordered them) will be handed out at the end.  If you ordered a summer shirt, we will give it to your child to give to you.

Taylorsville Parade Udpate

Some of you have been asking about the Taylorsville Dayzz Parade on Saturday, June, 24th.  Since we've had a change of director and practices started late, we are still uncertain who will be marching in that particular parade.  It may be the whole band or it may be just percussion and color guard.  Mr. Matthews has said he will make a decision after Wednesday's rehearsal.  He wants to see how the band does putting music and marching together.  So, for now, please keep it on your calendars as a morning parade.  There are no definite times, yet, even on the Taylorsville Dayzz website.

Once Mr. Matthews makes his decision, we will get the word out with all of the details.

Thanks for your continued patience!
