Grain Valley, Missouri R-5 School District

Mission

The Grain Valley Band is a youth organization that provides opportunities that promote and develop musical skills, life skills, and personal enrichment through education and self-reliance through self-accountability. It encourages teamwork and the importance of group over self, sportsmanship, civic pride, and contributions of one’s personal best to a unified group goal. These lessons are learned through a musical and marching activity in which there is a blending of the arts and athletics.

The Grain Valley Band strives to not only produce dedicated and talented artists; but also self-sufficient, confident young people who have seen the positive effects that their behavior and talents have created. As an organization, Grain Valley Bands strives to be one that is always striving to build and maintain a culture of excellence. The drive for the Grain Valley Band comes from improving as a group, improving as individuals, being upstanding citizens and performing for the audience first and foremost. Finally, the Grain Valley Band is a close family that spends a great deal of time together producing great music, learning life skills, and creating memories that will last a life-time.
