Skyline High School Marching Band Community Activities
In the midst of their focus on a goal of placing high in state and earning those superior ratings, the Coyote band makes sure to support the football team with Friday morning pep rallies and stand tunes each Friday night, when points are scored on the field. They play at freshmen orientation, the homecoming carnival, the teacher welcome lunch and even at the junior high and elementary parent nights. They take time to make a card for a rival band who lost their director to cancer, they volunteer at the Special Olympics to not only play in the opening ceremony, but stay for a dance party on the field with the special athletes. They held a pink out night at the football game for breast cancer awareness, donated blood, held a community rummage sale charity fundraiser, worked at Breakfast with Santa for needy children, worked at the Rock and Gem show and played at a Veteran’s Day ceremony at Springdale Village where 50 Veterans were presented medals for their service. They also participated in community events like the Apache Junction Parade of Lights, the Martin Luther King Day Parade and last year were the only band in the city be invited to march in the Fiesta Bowl Parade.
They truly deserve praise for not only their resume of awards, but for their service to their school, the community and to amazing organizations that serve military veterans and Special Olympics Athletes. Skyline Marching Band is the spirit of their community.
