Canyon and Amarillo Schools – We’ve Got Spirit, Yes We Do
We have some of the best high schools here in our area. They give us a lot to be proud of. We are about to start football season and I know there are a lot of us looking forward to heading out to the stadium.
Not only are our high school teams suited up and ready to play. We have a lot of other high school spirit just waiting. We have the cheerleaders giving it their all. Oh, and don't forget the band. It is not a game without the sounds of the band.
The band has been at it for a while now. We may have just started school but they have had camps and practice. Oh, and a few schools use this time in the early school year to start some fundraising.
One of the traditions that have been around for a while is the good ol' March-a-Thon. I remember growing up in Canyon and since it is a small town the whole community got involved.
Last weekend was the joy that was Canyon's March-a-Thon. Oh, and social media took notice. My favorite post was from someone who obviously just moved into Canyon.
It's just not Canyon without them showing their Eagle pride. It's always been a cool thing.
Now they are not the only schools that partake in this school spirit. Amarillo High has its own March-a-thon. The only problem is Amarillo of course is a bigger city so they only get around the school neighborhood. So that is a bummer.
New this year was Randall High taking part with their first ever March-a-thon. They figured they can't let Canyon and Amarillo High have all the fun.
Here is to another year of school spirit here in the Texas Panhandle.
