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 months, and the day finally came for her to sing with us LIVE and IN PERSON from the Elsa England Cafeteria!!!!!!
Families at Elsa England, please check out this great event coming up in a few short weeks! Parents, please note the IMPORTANT RSVP DETAILS at the bottom of the flyer. RSVPs need to be made by parents to the teacher, on behalf of the student’s grandparents — by Thursday, March 7th!

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 seven HUGE voting parties in the library!
A record-breaking 516 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!!!!
PreK students, Kindergarteners, and 1st graders are very excited to meet Emily Arrow on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27th! Emily is a former elementary-school-music-teacher-turned-kidlit-singer/songwriter; writing and performing fabulous songs based on picture books!
