Each student will choose one crustacean, invertebrate, bird, mammal, and fish to research. This is a big step for them and they are doing a great job!

Bluebonnet Parties

Students who read five of this year's Bluebonnet books were invited to their grade's Bluebonnet party. As they arrived, they learned that this year's state winer was The Uglified Ducky by Willy Claflin. Students enjoyed blue drinks and donuts, facepainting and tattoos, playing awesome games, and choosing a free paperback book. It was a great time!!
