Dear Parents/Guardians:

Upbeat Club Volunteers are preparing the Year in Review slideshow for the Band Awards Program which will be held on Monday, May 13 at 7:00 pm. Please send in any photos that you have from the 2018 – 2019 season of marching, concert, jazz and/or pep band that we may be able to include in the Year in Review slideshow. Additionally, one of the favorite highlights of this slideshow is the morphing of the graduating seniors’ baby/toddler pictures into their 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 Saturday, APRIL 13, 2019.
Here are guidelines for the baby/toddler and senior pictures to ensure they work in the slideshow 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, and 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 slideshow. *Instrument(s) band member played.

DEADLINE: Saturday, APRIL 13, 2019

(There is a significant amount of processing needed to get this slideshow ready, so we need the photos as soon as you are able. Please be kind to our volunteers who are preparing the slideshow and send these pictures 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 slideshow.

Please contact Heather Garland at or Kara Woeller at with any questions.

MANY thanks to Rob and Rachel Gilley for creating the slideshow!!
