Dear Members, Parents and Potential Members,
Greetings from The PRIDE of Southside! First, we would like to congratulate everyone on an outstanding 1st semester. As always, our communities of Southside & Rainbow City have a lot to be proud of! Our students’ dedication to musical and personal excellence continues to drive our band programs to new heights.
As hard as it may be to believe, it is already time again to begin planning for next year. The award winning Southside Marching Band, “The PRIDE” of Southside is the flagship ensemble of the high school band program. For 59 years, our members have thrilled fans with their entertaining performances and musical ability. Comprised of some of the top students in the school, The PRIDE performs for thousands of people each year at Football games, competitions, concerts, recitals, performances, parades and many other events nation-wide. All high school band students are automatically members of this prestigious ensemble.
“The PRIDE” of Southside Attendance Policy Because of the nature of our activity, and the number of members that we have to coordinate “The PRIDE” has a very strict attendance policy.
