Welcome back!  We are excited about the great school year ahead.  This year the main page of the blog will provide information that is for all three grade levels - 6th, 7th & 8th grade.  We have added new pages to the blog that are specific to each grade level/class where we will post information that is specific for each class.  


This year we will also be adding the band calendar dates to the calendar in the events section of the blog. The best way to communicate with both Ms. Bulock and Mr. Dietrich is still through email!  We are glad you are hear and are looking forward to a fantastic year!!
