Welcome to Blowing Rock School
Remembering a Special Blowing Rock School Teacher
A very special retired Blowing Rock School teacher Mariann Clawson has lost her battle with cancer and we offer our heartfelt condolences to her family and friends. Ms. Clawson taught for many years at Blowing Rock School and continued to volunteer after her retirement, often in her daughter Marcia Winkler’s classroom. A beautiful description of Ms. Clawson’s life and her many contributions can be found in the obituary posted on the Austin and Barnes website.

Video of Highlights of 3rd Annual Faculty-Student Basketball Game
The 3rd Annual Blowing Rock School Faculty-Student basketball game was held November 10, 2015 to a packed gymnasium. This video is approximately 10 minutes long. Please change the settings (gear icon) to 1080 HD to view the video at it's highest quality level. This was filmed with TA Tammy Bolick's GoPro Hero3. Apologies to Ms. Tincher for misspelling her name.
Thank you for all the donations for the Green Street Catering Thanksgiving baskets which Ms. Stepuch coordinated. The food has been picked up and will be delivered to those in need for Thanksgiving.
3rd Annual Faculty-Student Basketball Game Sees Packed Gymnasium
The 3rd Annual Faculty-Student Basketball Game saw a packed house of families enjoying the game and PTO sponsored events. Families enjoyed Mellow Mushroom pizza prior to the game along with concessions and BRS spirit gear for sale. The evening opened with a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem by the Appalachian State University Mens A Capella group "ASU Higher Ground". Once again, former Blowing Rock School student Hayden Uzelac did a wonderful job as our game announcer and some of the teachers served as cheerleaders. Some very brave parents played against the faculty for one of the 5 quarters and performed very well! This year’s middle school basketball students also performed very well and the game was much closer than last year. Once again, the faculty showed their stuff and won the game. A Half Court Shot Contest was held during half time and former Blowing Rock Student Issac Soucek succeeded in making the only full half court shot. Student Mace H. was the only younger student to score from the younger kids modified distance. The interesting photo of Middle School Science Teacher Liz Tincher and Technology Instructor Robert Smith shows them battling for the right to pick the winner of the ASU Football Ticket raffle. It was a great evening of family fun. A highlight video will be posted soon. A special thanks to 4th Grade Teacher Martha Trimble for organizing this event as well as all the staff and PTO parents that worked hard to make this such a great night..

PTO Dollars at Work
Community and school support of PTO events gave us the opportunity to purchase a much-needed leaf blower. It will be put to good use by Mr Lloyd in removing wet leaves, sticks and debris from sidewalks and our beautiful new playground. Thanks also goes to TJ Stough at Lowe's Home Improvement for giving us a great deal on the purchase!
1st Grade Field Trip
Ms. Patterson and Ms. Searcy's classes had a field trip on Friday, November 6, 2015 to The Farmer's Daughter in Taylorsville, North Carolina. The students enjoyed a wonderful old-fashioned fall hay ride.
Labels for Education Collection Drive
Labels for Education is offering bonus points for submissions postmarked in November. Keep en eye out for those labels while cooking those tasty Thanksgiving meals! Clip like crazy and drop them off anytime in the collection bin in the school office.
PTO dollars at Work
Recently, because of your support, the PTO was able to contribute $500 towards needs in the Kindergarten and 1st grade classrooms for new Investigations math program manipulatives. The teachers use Geoblocks and Power Polygons to help the lessons come to life. When you see Ms Bolster, Ms Patterson, Ms Seagle or Ms Searcy, be sure to ask them about their new tools.
