Taggart Stadium Changes

Attention Parents and Guardians of students in grades k-12:

As we kick off the 2021-2022 Football season, we would like to invite all students to cheer on our CANES!  To cheer them on, students in grades k-5 will be seated in the bleachers on Cunningham Ave.  All students in grades k-5 must be accompanied by an adult and sit with an adult at all times throughout the game.

Students in grades 6-12 are encouraged to sit in the Student Section on the Dushane St. side of the stadium.  This side is for New Castle students in grades 6-12 only. Students in grades 6-12 can sit on the Cunningham Ave. side, only if they are accompanied by a parent/guardian and remain seated with them.  To show our New Castle spirit, we will be giving away prizes and concessions to students in grades 6-12 on the student side!

Thank you for your cooperation! Go 'Canes!!
