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.

If your child is planning on going on tour in the spring and you didn't get to the meeting, there is also a Travel Consent form located under the Forms and Information tab.  Please mark the appropriate box and sign and date the form and send it to Ms. Johnson ASAP.  Please make sure to put 9/29/15 for the date!

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!

Weber Review

The start of the 2015 Fall Marching Season is here!  We begin with Weber Review at Weber State on Tuesday, September 22nd.  Here are the details:

The bus will leave from Copper Hills at 1:00 p.m.  It will return to Copper Hills by 8:00 p.m.
Our performance time is 5:15.  Warm ups begin at 4:00.  If you have signed up to help with equipment, please be at Weber State no later than 4:15.  If you are helping with food, the kids will eat after they play.

Here are driving directions to Weber State (although it's probably easier to ask Siri or use your smartphone):

If you are coming to support the band, wear our school colors proudly and look for other parents to sit next to in the stands.  Entrance fee is $5 per person.

Please feed your child a healthy breakfast that morning.  They will also eat lunch at school before they leave. They need to be strong and alert for competition.  Also, make sure they have LONG black socks as part of their uniform and of course, their black marching shoes.

Go Marching Grizzlies!

Parent Preview

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!

After the show in the stadium, at least one parent needs to stay longer to complete paperwork for the Red Rocks band trip at the end of October.  We will have a notary in the band room signing parent consent forms for student travel and medical treatment.  It is of the upmost importance that a parent is there to sign these documents that night.  Please bring a picture ID and insurance card.

The night should last about an hour and a half from start to finish.  There may be rain that day, so come prepared with an umbrella.

See you there!
