At the end of January, we held our third annual Bluebonnet Voting Parties!! This year, so many students were eligible to vote that we had to have THREE voting parties in order to fit everyone in the library!
We had 135 students who qualified to vote for their favorite Bluebonnet book — these 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students read 5 or more Bluebonnet Books from the Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List:
- 45 voters in 3rd grade
- 48 voters in 4th grade
- 40 voters in 5th grade
Some other fun facts about this year’s Bluebonnet Program:
- England students read 1,570 Bluebonnet Books between August and January! WOW!
- Kudos to Mrs. Schermerhorn’s Class for reading the most books – 188!
- Mrs. Potral’s Class ROCKED the Bluebonnet Books — they had the most qualified voters — 17!
The Bluebonnet Breakfast will take place this Friday! We have a record-breaking 43 students qualified to attend the Bluebonnet Breakfast, for those who read 10+ books in 3rd grade, 12+ books in 4th grade, and 14+ books in 5th grade!!! WOW!!
Finally, we have 14 students qualified to attend our Campus Battle of the Bluebonnets, for those who read all 20 books. This year’s participants are: Alizeh, Neha, Saanvi, Paridhi, Suhani, Ashley, Changbin, Hailey, Jennifer, Sasank, Aditya, Akshay, Evan and Krisha! Way to go, Bluebonnet Rockstars!
I am SO proud of all of our Bluebonnet Program Participants from this year! Reading the Bluebonnet Books expands your reading horizons and I know our students discovered new authors and genres and enjoyed participating in our fun program!
