Dear Coronado Community,

Homecoming is football, floats and fun! It’s powder puff, parades, painting and parties. It’s bonfires, spirit days, tailgates, pep rallies and memories.

Earlier than last year, Coronado will celebrate their 39th Homecoming parade on Saturday, September 28, 2019 caravanning south on Colorado Avenue and culminating with a pep rally in Bancroft Park. Spirit days dominate the week of celebrations inviting students to dress in costume or school colors to show their school spirit. This year’s theme of Hollywood Magic opens all kinds of possibilities for Harry Potter and Austin Powers fans, along with all things Hollywood.

Coronado is the only District 11 high school to host a homecoming parade. Since 1981, Coronado has planned, promoted and participated in this one-of -a-kind community supported event, encompassing all Westside elementary and middle schools to celebrate students past and present. Once a no-cost affair, this tradition now requires months of planning to acquire city permits, fundraise, promote, and coordinate with Old Colorado City merchants. Each year the student council votes on continuing this massive endeavor, and each year students, staff, alumni, retirees, and the Westside community enthusiastically endorse it.

Homecoming unites the past and the present! We have an even bigger event planned for next year - join us in the fall of 2020 as Coronado celebrates 50 wonderful years educating our bright young minds of tomorrow! Events and activities are already in the works. Should you care to get involved we’d love to have your input and ideas. If you are a Cougar alum, come back for the festivities. If you are a Westsider, come for the community atmosphere. We’ve got spirit! Yes we do! We’ve got spirit! How ‘bout you?
