A Message from Miss Johnson

Dear students and parents,
   What a great end to the season!  I'm so proud of everyone and the hard work they put in to give the kids a good experience.  I'm also extremely proud of the students.  This was a tough season and they stayed positive the whole time.  We had some excellent performances and I think they enjoyed themselves.  I know I did.  (Yes, I did, in spite of the occasional burst of grumpiness.)
   Just a few items to wrap up the end of the season.

1.  We had some sweatshirts, a lunchbox, and a Juicy Couture bag left on the buses after Red Rocks.  Those are in the band room Lost and Found.

2.  I think I need to take a minute to talk about something that caused some friction during the season.  Last year I was made aware that some of the students who had graduated previously would cause disruption if they came near the band.  I talked to senior leadership and we put a "no alumni coming to visit the band except at Homecoming and the 4th of July parade" rule.  I was pretty clear that they would need to abide by this rule, as well, so as not to step on current leadership's toes.  They all agreed.  This year I did not take the time to be clear about expectations: I will do so now.  

At competitions alumni are expected to sit with the parents, or at the fringe of the band.  The same is true of football games.  Next year's alumni should not ask to ride the bus to competitions - I will say no.  If alumni come specifically to help band parents (which DID happen a couple of times this season) they will be most welcome, but expected to spend time with the adults, not the students.  

I know this may seem harsh, but please understand - I am doing this for the good of everyone.  It's not fair to anyone to have alumni around constantly. Alumni have graduated to bigger and better things. They need to spend time building new friends and engaging in their current activities.  I know that it is very painful to come back to something that is different and has moved on without you.  It is in their own best interest to stay away.  It's also not fair to current students: they have worked hard to make the band experience their own and it so easily slides back to where it used to be.  (This is why moving out of parents' house is a good way to mature.)  We always want our students to be moving forward and growing and maturing.  It's also a logistical nightmare for me.  I have enough trouble being responsible for my students that I really don't want to add on any extras. I've left parents behind because anybody who is post-high school age needs to be taking care of themselves.

Please DO encourage alumni to visit/come visit.  Just also be sensitive and do it appropriately.  Band is such a wonderful thing and it means a lot to everyone, which is why feelings get hurt.  Be aware that my responsibility is to my current students because they are the reason I have a job.  That doesn't mean I love my alums less, it just means I have different expectations for them.

With that said, it was wonderful to see all of the alumni this year.  Can't wait to see how many show up in the future!

All righty, on to the next item.

3. Because we took 2nd place at Mount Timpanogas all the students have a free hamburger coupon to Habit burger.  I'll be passing those out at the party on Thursday and if students are unable to attend they can pick theirs up the following day/week.  

4.  The band is attending the school musical (Bye Bye Birdie) Thursday night.  Feel free to attend and support our band students playing in the pit and on stage, and all the other amazing CHHS students!

We have a couple of events going on this week:

Football Game--Thursday Night
Marching band practice will go until 5:30.  At that time, the kids will have a 40 minute break to relax and eat.  Ms. Johnson has asked that the kids stay at the school during this break.  They will need to provide their own food.  At 6:10, they will change into full uniform and head to the stands prior to pre-game.  They will stay in uniform for the duration of the game.

Mt. Timpanogos Competition--Saturday

Bus leaves:  8:00 a.m.
Warm up:  2:00 p.m.
Performance:  3:15 p.m.
Buses back at school between 11:00-11:30 p.m.  (This is subject to change to an earlier return time.)

The band boosters will feed the kids after they perform.  The kids may want to bring snacks or money for the rest of the day.  Make sure they get a good breakfast.

Don't forget:
     *Green fall t-shirt
     *Warm clothes for sitting in the stands
     *Water bottle
     *LONG black socks

The competition is held at Pleasant Grove High School.  Admission is $5.  If you have been asked to help with pit or color guard equipment, please try to be at the competition an hour before performance.  If you are coming as part of the crowd, please wear your Copper Hills colors and cheer loudly for our band!

Potato Pick Up!

The potatoes will be ready to be picked up Tuesday (Oct. 13th) at 3:30 p.m.  Please pull through the front driveway on the north side of the high school to pick up your order.  The potatoes should be separated by kind so we'll just go through and get the bags you need.  It is crucial that your order be picked up tomorrow!  Someone will be there to help you until 5:00 or 5:30.  If you need to come later than that, please email to make arrangements.

It's a Miracle!

Our site is functioning once again!  Through no power of the blog author, everything seems to be working once again.  Isn't technology amazing?

Technical Difficulties

For some reason, the various links to sign-up sheets or other information is showing that they do not exist.  While this is a frustration, all is not lost.  The sheets are indeed alive and well, but for some reason are not in the right place.  Please bear with us as we strive to fix this problem.  If there is a particular sheet you need access to, please send an email to and we can give you the information you seek.

Thursday night Football Game

The band will participate in Thursday night's football game at Copper Hills.  They will have regular rehearsal until 5:00 p.m. and then an extra 45 minute rehearsal to go over pre-game and pep tunes.  They will then have a 45 minute break to eat something (they can eat at the high school or run home for dinner) and then back to the school at 6:30 p.m. ready for the game.  They are to be dressed in their blue summer t-shirts, jeans, and marching shoes.

March with Your Favorite College!

On November 21st, there are two opportunities to march with the best college marching bands in Utah--BYU and the U of U.  Here are the links to submit your applications:


U of U:

This is a great opportunity to see first hand how a college marching band operates.   Submit your applications early so you can receive info directly from whichever college you choose to march with!  Have a great time!

Wasatch Front Competition

Our next competition is at Herriman High School on Saturday, Oct. 3rd.  Call time is 10:00 a.m. for a short rehearsal at Copper Hills before boarding the buses at 11:00.  Please be a little early because MJ wants to begin rehearsing at 10:00 sharp!  The band steps on the field at 2:30.  Warm up time will be an hour to hour and fifteen minutes before then.  The band will return to the school around 8:00 p.m.

If you have signed up to help with equipment, please arrive at Herriman High about 1:00.  Be prepared for some possible heavy work.  The weather forecast shows cooler weather, but be prepared with water and proper sun attire.  We should have our parent polos by then, but if you didn't order one, either wear the fall t-shirt if you ordered one or forest green.  We will have extra field badges for you to use while you're at the competition.

Please send your student with water.  The band boosters provide some water, but not enough to last the whole day.  The kids will be served one meal after they perform, so if you think your child might want something else to eat, either send them with snacks or money to buy food at concessions.

Also, make sure your student has LONG black socks and their marching shoes.  We want the kids looking as sharp and clean on the field as possible.

Parent Meeting News

Thanks to all who came out to our parent meeting tonight.  We had a really good turn out!  If you missed the meeting, the fundraiser flyers and order forms are now on this blog under the Fundraising tab.  If you have any questions about either of the fundraisers, contact the boosters at  The money for both of the fundraisers is due on Oct. 9th!  Make checks payable to CHHS and turn all money into the Band: fundraising account in the high school office.  If the link doesn't work for some reason, there are extra copies of everything in the band room.

Band Parent Meeting

There is a band parent meeting on Sept. 29th at 7:00 p.m. in the band room.  This meeting is for ALL Copper Hills Band parents, not just Marching Band parents!  We will be discussing the two upcoming fundraisers and also getting approval for our spring band tour.  We need at least 80% approval from the parents of the students going on tour so attendance of at least one parent is crucial.  If you do not have a student going on tour, then you will be excused after the fundraiser kick-off.  See you there!

Parents, family, and friends are invited to our Parent Preview night on Monday, September 14th at 6:30 p.m. at the Copper Hills stadium.  It is free of charge.  This will be the band's first chance to perform their whole show for a crowd.  Come and show your support!  There may even be a little audience participation!

Cowabunga Dude!

The band's fun day at Cowabunga Bay is coming up on July 21st right after the Parade Preview.  Your student should have already paid the entrance fee, but if they haven't, the cost is $14.50 and it goes into the "Marching Band--other (Cowabunga Bay)" account.  This fee needs to be paid by Wednesday, July 15th.  If you haven't paid after that time, a fine will show up on your account.  If your child has already told Ms. Johnson that they will not be participating in Cowabunga Bay, then there will be no fine added.

If your child is one who is not participating, they are responsible for finding their own rides home from the South Towne Expo Center.  Carpools can be organized, but that is the responsibility of the child and/or their parent.  Please be at the South Towne Expo Center by 2:00 p.m. to pick up your child or they will have to ride the bus over to Cowabunga Bay and be picked up there.

Parents are welcome to come to Cowabunga Bay to play with their kids, but any person (parent, sibling, etc.) who is not a marching band member will have to pay full admission prices upon arrival at Cowabunga Bay.

Lehi Roller Mills Update

The Lehi Roller Mills final order will be turned in on Monday, July 13th.  After going through each order, it was discovered that some had been overpaid or underpaid.  You should have been notified if that is the case.  If you overpaid, a credit will be added to your child's band account, which should show up on Wednesday, July 15th.  If you underpaid, that amount will be subtracted from your total earnings.  If you have any questions, you may contact Jolyn Furnell at the band's email account:

Days of '47 Permission/Picture Release Form

Please make sure to sign the permission/picture release form if your child plans on participating in the Days of '47 Parade.  If you have misplaced the form, you can go to and print the form off to sign.  This form is due Tuesday, June 30th.

Fundraiser Money Due!

Don't forget all Lehi Roller Mills fundraising money is due Thursday, July 2nd.  Turn all money into the office in your child's name under the "Marching Band: Fundraising" category.  The order form may be placed in the blue box in the band room.  (Make sure you make a copy of the form--just in case.)

Sunday, June 21, 2015

Lehi Roller Mills Fundraiser

Our next fundraiser will be selling Lehi Roller Mills baking mixes.  The students will receive their order forms tomorrow (Monday, June 22nd) at the end of practice.  They will have two weeks to sell items.  Order forms and money are all due on July 2nd.  Please make sure all money is turned into the office to the "Marching Band--Fundraiser" account and that checks are made out to Copper Hills High School.  Each student will receive 50% of their sales which will help with band fees immensely.

Happy selling!


We still have many opportunities for parents to volunteer at our fall competitions, especially on our equipment and uniform committees.  If you have any questions or concerns about volunteering, please ask Ms. Johnson, Kristi Olsen, Michelle Moulton or send an email to  The committee sign-ups should be working on the blog.  Click on Volunteers and then choose the committee you want to be on.  Please make sure to include the competitions you will be helping with.  If you have already signed up for a committee but need to add your dates, please do so ASAP.  If you are interested in helping with the Summer Water Committee, it is under its own heading under Volunteers.

The band program really cannot function without the help of our band parents.  For example, this year, we will have more equipment to get on the field during competitions and only so much time to get it on, so the more volunteers the better.  You will be trained by a committee chair on how to do your job prior to competitions.  We want to make volunteering a pleasant experience for everyone involved.

Thanks for your help!  Together we can make the CHHS band program great!

Dear Band Parents--

There is an important band parent meeting on May 28th at 6:00 p.m. in the band room.  We will be announcing the new Booster board, talking about the fall Red Rocks tour, and signing up for committees.  Please plan on sending at least one parent to this meeting.  Your student is not required to attend.

The committee descriptions are below.  Plan on signing up for at least two shifts--preferably on the same committee.

The equipment committee is responsible for helping the students get various pieces of equipment (mostly percussion) on/off the field during competitions.

The uniforms committee is responsible for making sure all students are competition ready.  This may include checking for clean shoes, if the students have proper socks and gloves, putting plumes in hats, and clothing repair.  This committee will also make sure the band gets a drink of water before they go on the field.

Color Guard
The color guard committee is responsible for helping the color guard with costumes, hair, makeup, and equipment at each competition.

The food committee is responsible for feeding the kids at all competitions and band camp.  This may include making reminder calls, gathering food, restocking supplies, and/or making various types of food.  Food donation sign-ups will be posted as fall season gets closer.

To make your decision easier, here are the dates of our competitions:
Weber State:  Sept. 22nd
Wasatch Front (Riverton High?):  Oct. 3rd
Bridgerland (Utah State): Oct. 10th
Mt. Timp (Pleasant Grove High School): Oct. 24
Red Rocks (St. George):  Oct. 29th-31st

Each of these committee sign-up forms is also on this blog under Volunteers.  You may sign up there, as well.

We also need help with giving the students water during our summer parades.  There will be a sign-up for that, as well.  The parade dates are:

Taylorsville (Drum line):  June 27th
West Jordan (Regular band + alumni):  July 4th a.m.
Sandy (Drum line):  July 4th p.m.
Day of '47 Youth Parade (Regular band):  July 18th

Booster meeting Tuesday Jan 13

Come join us for our next Booster meeting tomorrow, January 13 at 7:00pm in the CHHS band room.  We will be discussing and planning the preparations for the Dinner Dance Fundraiser.  This fundraiser will provide needed funds for our program that will benefit all the students. 

Winter Guard Food donations

Guard parents—
Evaluations are here! This Saturday, January 17th is evaluations. This is a time where they compete in front of the judges to be placed in their competition group. We will be meeting at Copper Hills at 9:00 in the morning and will warm up, review and then get on the buses. We will return between 1:00-1:30 at Copper Hills. We will not be providing lunch on this date due to the early return time. If needed they can bring a small snack with them.
Food for competitions
On competition days we feed the guard lunch. We ask that you sign up to help provide the food so that we can keep the cost down. Please note that we do the best to give them a good lunch but we are at competitions for a long time. They will need to still bring food for dinner or money for concession stand food. (We will be at the competitions from about 12:00 to 10:00 each time). I am working on getting the sign up for food on the blog but until then you can message me with the items you are willing to donate. We will be feeding 24 people for competitions.
