    Link to Read-A-Thon


    Due to Covid restrictions and an abundance of caution for the health of our students and entire Blowing Rock School family, I have decided not to have an in-person Scholastic Book Fair fundraiser this Spring.
    Therefore we have an opportunity to try a new and exciting fundraiser that I think will be fun and rewarding. The Media Center at Blowing Rock School has decided to hold a Read-a-thon this year! This event will last for two full school weeks.
    Read-a-thons actually get your reader excited about reading and it gives friends and family the opportunity to encourage your child to read even more.
    Our Read-a-thon starts Monday March 1st 2021, which also kicks off our Read Across America Week.
    About one week before our Read-a-thon starts we will send home instructions on how to activate your reader's personal page. This is where you will be able to view and record their progress.
    We've chosen Read-a-thon because it will not take much of your time, rewards your child for something that Blowing Rock students already excel at and helps in the development of stronger reading skills.
    We hope EVERYONE participates.
    Thanks so much,
    Mrs. Carol Critcher
    Blowing Rock School Media Specialist/Librarian

  • 'Say Something" Program

    Over the coming weeks, Watauga County Schools will adopt a state-approved reporting program called the Say Something Anonymous Reporting System. The system will allow students, staff, and teachers to anonymously report issues of concern regarding student and school safety. Middle and high school students will receive information from their schools starting next week about the reporting system and how to submit reports.

    Students will have access to a mobile app that will allow them to submit tips to a national crisis center staffed 24/7 by trained counselors. The crisis center staff will triage, categorize and deliver tip information to local law enforcement and school staff who will then be able to investigate to determine the level of concern or threat. Tips will be categorized as either “life safety” or “non-life safety” based on the information provided. The Crisis Center will notify school staff and the local 911 dispatch after-hours when tips are life-threatening or in cases of imminent threat.

    Tips can be sent in via the web, a phone hotline, or through the app – including photos and videos.

    Parents are strongly encouraged to discuss the appropriate use of the reporting system with their children and to be aware if the app is loaded onto phones or other personal electronic devices. Parents with questions about the new system are welcome to call the school any time to talk with our school counselor. 
    Additional information about the Say Something Anonymous Reporting System can be found online at SaySomething.net.

  • Sports Physical Reminder 


    All students who wish to tryout for sports this upcoming school year must have completed an updated sports physical. The physical must have been completed within 395 days of the first day of tryouts for whatever sport they are participating in. Students who do not have a physical WILL NOT be allowed to tryout.

    Most doctors have the sport physical form on hand, but if they do not, you can find one on the Blowing Rock Volleyball webpage:https://www.wataugaschools.org/Page/2995

    If you have any questions please email (dellingerl@wataugaschools.org) or message me.
