Welcome to Blowing Rock School

The supply list page is under "General Information" on the side navigation links. Classroom rosters will be posted Wednesday, August 5th. .Update: classroom rosters will be on the windows by the bus parking lot on Sunset Drive.
Volunteers still needed
If parents want to help with clearing gravel (especially around the basketball hoop area) and other chores, please contact the school to see how you can help! Thanks.
Playground Progress July 30, 2015
Progress continues on the playground. An opening on August 18th (the first day of school) is in the works! ​As always, thanks to Blowing Rock School grandmother and Photographer Phyllis Shore for all these great photos -- as well as the very helpful text in documenting the playground's progress.
 
Reminder from Coach D.: Physicals Required for Team Tryouts
In order to try out for Fall Sports (Volleyball, Football, Basketball)...students must have a physical that has been completed within the last calendar year. Students who do not have an updated physical WILL NOT be allowed to try out. If you have any questions email Coach Dellinger at: dellingerl@watauga.k12.nc.us. Most doctors have the needed physical form. You may also click to download the NCHS Athletic Physical Form to use (even though it says "High School").
2015-2016 PTO Officers, Volunteers & Grade Parents
Update from PTO Parent Mike Jasper: With the 1st day of school just 3 weeks from today (already!), we wanted everyone to know that the PTO is looking for new board members. The board has multiple openings, and I know you've got some great skills to share to make BR School even better! For more information, send an email to blowingrockpto@gmail.com or leave a comment on the matching post on the Blowing Rock PTO Facebook group. Thanks!​
