JSD Combined Band

The JSD combined band rehearsals will be Wednesday, July 20th - Friday, July 22nd from 9:00 a.m. until noon at Copper Hills.  If you are participating in the combined band, please make sure to be at rehearsal on time and prepared.  As it will be later in the day than our usual band rehearsals, make sure to bring plenty of water and wear sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen.  It will be hot!

Days of '47 Parade Preview and Lagoon

Our next parade is the Days of '47 Parade Preview at the South Towne Expo Center on July 19th.  Here is some vital information:

  • All those doing fall band have a mandatory music rehearsal at 9:00 a.m.
  • Call time for all band members going to the parade is 10:00 a.m.  There will be a short rehearsal before boarding the bus.  The school will be open at this time.
  • Parade time is approximately 11:30 a.m.
  • The kids will then board the bus to Lagoon around 12:15 p.m.
  • If your child is not going to Lagoon, they are responsible for finding their own transportation home.  Staff and other parents are not permitted to transport your child from a school event.
  • The kids will return from Lagoon about 11:00 p.m.  There will be no school access at that time.
As always, students need to wear their designated summer uniform.  

Things to remember for Lagoon:
  • There will be a discount, but the kids still need to pay for their tickets at the gate, unless they have a season pass.  The discounted rate is $45.
  • There are lockers available to hold items, but it is recommended that valuables be left at home.  Bags are not typically allowed on rides.
  • Your child will primarily be in charge of themselves.  They are representing CHHS and are expected to act responsibly in the park.
  • Don't forget sunscreen!

Draper Days Parade

Don't forget that the band will be marching in the Draper Days parade on Saturday, July 16th!  Here are few things you need to know:

  • There will be no school access that morning!  If you need your instrument/equipment, it is best to get it during the week while someone is there.
  • The band is taking a bus to the parade.  Call time is 7:15 at CHHS.  Please do not be late!
  • The bus will be back to CHHS by noon at the latest.  If you would like to take your child home from the parade, you will need a signed note from Mr. Quarnberg giving permission.
  • As always, students marching must wear their green summer shirt, khaki shorts (black for guard), short black socks (white for guard), and black shoes (white for guard).  No hats, but sunglasses are OK.
  • Don't forget your sunscreen!
