Dear Parents/Guardians of Graduating Band Seniors:

Upbeat Club Volunteers are preparing the Year In Review slide show for the Band Awards program on Monday, May 15, 7:00 pm. One of the favorite highlights of this slide show is the morphing of baby/toddler pictures into senior pictures.  Our band members look forward to this every year, and we want to be sure no one is left out!

You may work with your student or make it a surprise, but please select and send both a photo of your child as a baby or toddler AND  a Senior picture (or a photo from this year).

Please email to no later than FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 2017.

Here are guidelines for the pictures to ensure they work in the slide show and will be clear enough:

Picture Orientation: We must be able to see the band member’s face directly from the front.

It works best if the photo poses/facial positions are similar; for example: both standing, both sitting, or both lying down.

 Picture Resolution: Resolution should be as high as possible so they will look good blown up on the screen—at least 1600 by 900 pixels, please.

 Picture Format: Only electronic photos accepted. Please send as .JPG, .TIFF, .PNG, .BMP or .PDF files.

 Information Needed:

*Student’s name as you would like it to appear in the slide show.

*Instrument(s) band member played.


(There is a significant amount of processing needed to get this slide show ready, so we need the photos as soon as you are able. Please be kind to our volunteers who are preparing the slide show and send these well before the deadline!)

Please send to, attach your photos, include the information requested and we will be sure to get your band member’s photos into the slide show.

Questions?  Please contact Julie Leonard ( or 513-477-9856.

MANY thanks to Joe Matejkovic for volunteering to create the slide show again this year!!
