Upbeat Updates 2/23 – (Rose trip, Winterguard, After Prom, Jazz ‘n Cakes, Volunteers, MB DVD)

Rose Parade Trip — Our travel company provided preliminary information at the Upbeat meeting on 2/18 for both the student and “follower” packages.  For those that could not attend, please CLICK HERE to access the information and forms.

Winterguard — Congratulations to both our A & B winterguard groups for taking 1st place at the competition at Connor HS in Hebron, KY on 2/22!  Great job!

After Prom — This is a new opportunity for Upbeat.  After Prom would like Upbeat to sponsor or co-sponsor a room.  There is no cost involved, we would just need volunteers to decorate a room to a theme before prom within the budget the PTSO provides, serve snacks during the event, and clean up after.  Several of our parents have been doing this with other activity groups.  If you would be interested, especially in the decorating part, please contact Julie Forney at   julie4knee@aol.com
