Lakota West Upbeat Club

The Upbeat Club raises significant funds and provide hundreds of hours of support, which enables the excellence we see on the stage and on the field.  The funds for the marching and concert uniforms,  as well as our tractor trailer, were all raised by band parents and students. Please join us in supporting our fantastic band program by volunteering,  and helping with some of the tasks in advance of our biggest fundraising events!

Taste for Music at Uno Pizzeria and Grill on Tuesday 2/19
