Welcome Back!

School officially begins on August 27, however members of our Spartan Sound Marching Band have been hard at work over the past several weeks preparing for the upcoming season.  Our campus is also going through some major renovations, upgrades, and new contruction this year.  I look forward to the start of a new school year, with new musicians and watching our returning students develop and become every stronger performers. For those keeping track, I am starting my 20th year at Sun Valley, 19 as the head director for the high school.  I am excited for the changes taking place across the campus and look forward to leading this year's group of students through another year of music and memories. 

Parents, in order to stay well-informed throughout the year, please let me know if you need to be added to the email distribution list. You can send me an email at jeff.reynolds@ucps.k12.nc.us or send a message through the website (see left column of home page).  You can also find our Sun Valley Band on Facebook (be sure it is ours, here in Monroe, NC).

I would also like to draw your attention to our Sponsor Page on the website.  Please take a moment to check out the wonderful businesses that are supporting our band program in various ways.  If you happen to stop by their place of business or visit their Facebook or other online page, please let them know you appreciate their support of our kids.

Once again, welcome back to another wonderful year at Sun Valley! 

-Mr. Reynolds
