Bluebonnet Voting Parties 2016

At the end of January, we held our fourth annual Bluebonnet Voting Parties!! This year, so many students were eligible to vote that we had two HUGE voting parties in the cafeteria!

A record-breaking 232 students cast their vote on our iPads, hung out with their friends, made and ate a custom snack mix, enjoyed Bluebonnet-related games, and received an “I Voted” sticker and a bookmark. It was SO MUCH FUN!!!!
