This is completely independent of the CHHS band and those who sign up are responsible for everything associated with the camp.

Office Fee Policy

Just a head's up to the Juniors and Seniors who will be driving to school next year:

The front office will not issue parking passes to any student who has outstanding fees.  This includes ALL fees:  registration, band, etc.

I realize that some of you are waiting for fundraisers to pay your fees.  There will be one more fundraiser that will help before the start of school.  Information will be coming soon.  There are also the Centennial Management events you can work.  If you're old enough to drive a car to school, you're old enough to work these events.

I didn't want you to find out in August that this is a school policy and the office will enforce it, no matter how much you beg.  :)

4th of July Parade

The band will participate in the West Jordan parade on July 4th again this year. As per tradition, all CHHS band alumni are invited to participate. You can find this year's parade music under the Marching Band tab on this blog. They're playing "The Magnificent Seven", the patriotic song, CHHS Fight Song, and the National Anthem.
Please wear a summer band t-shirt (blue or green) and khaki shorts, if possible.
If you need a school instrument, please contact Tyler Whittaker at the high school after practice this week. There is no guarantee that there will be available instruments, but it doesn't hurt to try.
Please also try to come to at least one practice on July 2nd or 3rd from 7:00-10:00 am.
Spread the word!

Band Car Wash

If you are interested in participating in the car wash, pick up a sheet of tickets to sell in the band room.  Please take one sheet at a time.  Make sure to cut out the tickets.

Some things to remember:
  • Student sells tickets and collects money.  Make sure student's name is on the ticket.
  • 100% of earned money goes directly into their account to pay for band fees.
  • It is the responsibility of band student (or parent) to take earned money to the front office at the high school to deposit.
  • Tell the front office ladies the money is going toward your band fees.
  • All band students should work at the car wash, if available.  The money from any random cars that come in for a wash will be split up among those students who worked that day.
If you have them, please bring to share:
  • Large towels for drying
  • Smaller towels/rags for washing
  • Sponges for washing
  • Buckets
Tell your friends and family!  Everyone could use a car wash!

Parent Meeting Minutes

We had a fantastic turn out for our parent meeting on Wednesday!  The 2018 marching season is going to be amazing!  In case you missed it, here are some things you need to know:

  • All contracts are due now!
    • If your child is at a middle school, they can give it to the band director and they will send it via district mail.  OR you can drop it off at the high school.
  • There are other forms that we handed out that night:
    • Approval for travel to St. George for the State Championships in October
      • Please fill in the appropriate information and turn it in with the contract
    • Instructions for registering for Register My Athlete
      • This is a new (to the band) program that will help to streamline communication and paperwork
      • Due to UHSAA regulations, marching band students are required to have a physical and turn in grades.  You can find the official physical form on Register My Athlete once you've joined.  Then, you turn it all in on Register My Athlete.  Sorry for the misinformation at kick-off!  
      • Every parent of a band student must do this!
    • A new payment schedule
      • The total fee stayed the same, but the payments had to be adjusted a little.
    • Blank contracts are also available in case you didn't get one.
  • Parent polos are now available for pre-sale.  They will be $30 for sizes S-XL, and then $1 more each time you go up in size.  Women's sizes go up to 4XL and men's go up to 6XL.
  • All the paperwork is under the Forms and Information tab at the top of this page.
Please send any questions to

Have a great day!
