VALLEY FOLKS

August 21, 2013

Jeff Beck, best known to local residents as the award-winning band teacher at both Valley Center High School and VC Middle School, also plays for one of the best known bands in San Diego, the Detroit Underground. Recently the band

was nominated for "Best Cover Band" in San Diego. If enough people vote for the band, Beck and his fellow musicians will get to perform at the San Diego Music Awards. It takes about 30 seconds to vote. All you need is an email address and to visit www.surveymonkey.com/s/sdma2013

The Valley Center Middle School Teacher Parent Club (TPC) is collecting your used shoes until Oct. 8. The school gets $1 per pair ... it's a great fundraiser because it does not cost anyone anything to participate. Bring in any shoes you can (including cleats).
