Emily Arrow sings with PreK, K, and 1st graders!

To say our students have been a little excited to meet kid-lit-tunes musician Emily Arrow is an understatement! We’ve been reading books, singing her songs, and watching her YouTube videos for weeks now, and the day finally came for her to sing with us LIVE and IN PERSON from the Elsa England Cafeteria!!!!!!

Bluebonnet Author Peggy Eddleman visits 3-5th graders!

Our 3-5th graders were SO EXCITED to meet Bluebonnet Author Peggy Eddleman during her visit to Round Rock! Every class had read her nominated book, Sky Jumpers,ย over the past semester, so Ms. Eddleman’sย visit was highly anticipated. It is always a special event when an author visits our school, but this visit in particular was extra special since Sky Jumpersย is nominated on this yearโ€™s Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List and is being read by students across Texas this year!

Her interactive presentation engaged our students and they enjoyed participating in a Readers Theater with Ms. Eddleman. We canโ€™t wait to read Sky Jumpers: The Forbidden Flats!

Thank you to our wonderful PTA for financing Ms. Eddleman’sย visit for our students!
