At the end of January, we held our sixth annual Bluebonnet Voting Parties!! This year, so many students were eligible to vote that we had six HUGE voting parties in the library!
A record-breaking 454 students cast their vote digitally, hung out with their friends, ate freshly popped popcorn (with/without m&m’s), enjoyed Bluebonnet-related games, and proudly wore their “I Voted” sticker the rest of the day. It was a BUSY day, and SO MUCH FUN!!!!
454 (!) of our AMAZING @ElsaEngRRISD students read 5+ @TBABooks and celebrated their love of reading during today’s six Bluebonnet Voting Parties! What a FUN day to celebrate literacy & hard work! #LibrariesRRock 🍿🎉📚😁 pic.twitter.com/ACaAV0jRO2
