Battle of the Bluebonnets 2014

It’s Battle time! This year, students who read at least 15 Bluebonnet Books were invited to join the Campus level Battle of the Bluebonnets on February 26, 2014. The competition was tough! Students used our new SMART Response system devices to submit their answers digitally and we all had a great time showing off our Bluebonnet knowledge.

In the end, we had to have a few tiebreakers, but ultimately selected our team of 5 students that would represent us a few weeks later in the DISTRICT level Battle of the Bluebonnets.
