Clothing orders

Dear Parents--

After a week of receiving requests for band wear, I have not yet received enough of an order to be able to get the items at the same price as our first order.  However, we are very close to the magic number ten that we need to get the same price.  If you are interested in ordering a hoodie, sweatpants, or a duffle bag, please send me an email at emmoulton@msn.com with the following information:

Student's name
Contact info
Item wanted along with size, band, guard, or drum line for pants, and whether or not you want a name embroidered on the bag

Please let me know by November 4th!

I have had several students tell me they want to order, so please talk to your child so I don't get any unwanted orders. 

Christmas is coming and this would be a fun gift to give!

If you have any questions, please email or call me at 801-803-0505.

This is NOT a mandatory event.  This is just for those high school juniors and seniors who wish to participate.  We will NOT be doing this as a group band activity.  Students who wish to attend will need to make their own arrangements for this event.

Participants get the experience of being a member of the Marching Utes along with the many benefits each member enjoys.
At this year's Experience, participants will perform pre-game AND halftime with the Pride of Utah. They will also participate in marching and music rehearsals with the Ute Marching Band and have a chance to interact with U faculty, students and fans.
This is a wonderful opportunity to Experience the historic and beautiful U campus and enjoy a sold-out, Pac-12, nationally televised football game in reserved seats with the Utah Marching Band."

Our next event is the Bridgerland Competition on Saturday, September 21st at Utah State University. Students should wear nice dress clothes for school on the day of all competitions.  (or on day before if competition is on the weekend)  The students will take a bus to this event.  Call time is 8:00am for normal practice at CHHS Band Room.  Buses will leave by 10:00am.  Our performance is at 2:45pm.  We will be competing in the 3A Division.  Band Boosters will be providing dinner for students and staff after their performance.  The bus will bring the students back to the school by around 5:30pm.  Marching students should have their fall shirt or black t-shirt/tank and shorts to wear under their uniforms.  Color Guard students please bring their other uniform pieces as needed.

Volunteers may ride the buses or meet us at the competition site.  Volunteers who are riding the bus need to be at the school by 9:45am.  All Volunteers please wear your Band Parent Shirts.   Some competitions may let volunteers in for free, but please come prepared to pay the $5 entrance fee anyway. 

For those who will be coming to watch, see the map below for directions on how to find the site.  I’ve mapped it starting at CHHS.  Be aware that all the competitions have a $5 entrance fee per person.  If you are coming to watch please wear your Band Parent Shirt.  It would be great if the students could easily see a group of us from the field, cheering them on!  While you are there come by and see if the volunteers need any help. 

Go Marching Grizzlies!!

Problems from Today

If you haven’t already heard, there were problems today and the Band did not get to go to their Weber Review.  There were issues with communication and scheduling of the buses that could not be resolved at this late date, so we were left without transportation to get the Band there.  Instead of going to the Review, our Band held a practice for a couple of hours and then the Boosters fed them the dinner that we had intended to feed them at the Review.  EVERYONE is upset about what happened today, but everyone worked past their anger and frustration and made the best of a bad situation.  I, for one, am very proud of our students and their commitment and positive attitudes.  Please know that, behind the scenes, we are assessing the problems of the day and working to correct them so they do not happen to us again. 

Having said that, it would not be inadvisable to us, as parents, to contact the school district and talk about our concerns of the lack of adequate resources.  I do not wish to load the district down with complaints, but I feel it is sometimes necessary to put voices to our concerns as parents.  If you do this, please do it without anger.   We do not wish to start pointing fingers.  We only wish to bring our issues to the attention of those with the power to change things.  With that in mind, you might be interested to know that there is a Board of Education meeting next week on Tuesday, September 24, (it doesn’t show a time on the website, will have to call and check) at the Jordan School District Auxiliary Services Building, 7905 South Redwood Road. 

Going forward, we’d like for everyone to be on the positive side and help us go into the next Band events with a good attitude and hard work.  Thank you to everyone who helped today!  Your support is always appreciated!

FINAL fee due date Aug 28

This is a reminder that the FINAL payment due date for Marching Band and Color Guard is coming due next week.  All Fall MB fees are due next Wednesday, August 28th.  The best way to pay is by going to the school's main office.  Please email copperhillsbandboosters@gmail.com with your student's name, payment amount and receipt number (or you can put a copy of receipt and fee form in the band room box).  If we are going to be able to provide for the students this fall, we really need everyone to get their fees paid in full.  Thank you to all that have been making their payments.

Help needed with measurements

We need parent helpers, only 2-3 people, who can help measure students for their new uniforms.  The school district has approved our purchase for the new uniforms and we need to measure the students so they can be custom made.  These uniforms will not be ready for us to use for our fall competitions, but we will have them for other times this school year.  We will also be using these measurements to help us order pants for them to wear this fall.  Please come to the school Wednesday at 10:00am if you are able to help.  Thank you!

Fall Marching Band Members,

It’s time to kick-start our fall season!

Band camp will be held August 19-23 from 8am-8pm.  Students will be learning fall music and sets for the show.  The Band Boosters will provide lunch and dinner every day.   See our Food Donation list for a menu of what we will be serving each day.   If there are any special dietary needs, be sure to provide those for yourself.  Be sure to eat a good breakfast before you come.  Be prepared to be in the sun, so wear light colored clothing, bring lots of water (1 gallon) and wear sunscreen.   Come ready to work hard and have fun!

Bring your marching band shoes, if you have them, to be passed off for use again this year.  If you do not have marching shoes, you will be fitted for some.  We will put together an order for marching shoes and for band parent shirts on the Monday of Band Camp.  Please pay for these items in the office and send or give us the receipt number so we can order them for you.

You may find the food donation list by looking for the Volunteer Tab at the top of this webpage to find the link for the food donations.  Please help us feed the students during camp!  Take a look and see what you are able to contribute.  We also need some people to help serve food for lunch and dinner each day.  Contact us at copperhillsbandboosters@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Regular practices for Fall Marching Band will start on August 27th.  Practices will be held 3:15-6:15pm on Tues and Thurs and 8am-12pm on Saturdays.  This will be the schedule for the rest of the season.  Watch the band calendar you can find on our website at http://copperhillsbandboosters.blogspot.com.
