Outstanding Saxophone Section
Outstanding Rhythm Section

The CHHS Winterguard performed at the WGI (Winterguard International) Regional, on the same day, up at Roy HS and NOT ONLY placed 1st at Prelims, but placed 1st in Finals AND won their divisional classification, being judged and recognized on a National level. Those ladies TOOK the world by storm!

Utah High School Dance Festival

The Utah High School Dance Festival was Saturday. There were 40 Utah High Schools in Attendance. Everyone performs 1-2 pieces (1 must be student choreographed) in front of elite artistic dance professionals who then assign a ranking with detailed feedback of Commendable, Excellence, or Superior. Our Copper Hills Dance Company has received a Superior! They then went on to take multiple dance classes and perform in the Gala. They represented our school with professionalism and pride. They were simply outstanding.

Food styling at its finest!

For the first time in awhile,  our culinary team is going to state! These students have worked hard. Here are some pictures from the event.
