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 new marching and concert uniforms,  as well as our new tractor trailer, were all raised by band parents and students. Please join us in supporting our fantastic band program!

Monthly Meetings

Our meetings are the third Thursday of every month except June, July and December. They are held at the Freshman School from August through October, then at the main campus for the remainder of the year.  Meetings start at 6:30pm, and the Exec Board is also available at 6pm for any questions.  We welcome all parents of band students and color guard members in grades 7 – 12, as well as alumni.
