Welcome to the the 2023-2024 Broughal Music Blast! This is a bittersweet time for many. With only a few days left of school, many are excited for Summer vacation, while others will miss the people and the memories they created this school year. We certainly will miss our 8th graders who have accomplished so much in a short amount of time. We wish you nothing but the best as continue your journey in high school and beyond. We also are excited to welcome the incoming 6th graders, who will join a phenomenal crew of students next year. Make sure you mark your calendars for Summer Music Camp, and check out the LAST edition of the 2023-2024 Broughal Music Blast carefully so that you are ready to wrap up this school year and enjoy your Summer. Go Rockets! Please note that the Broughal Music Blast will be sent out every weekend, detailing the rehearsal schedule, upcoming events, and important announcements.
