We have started with a new crop of 20 books for the 2017-2018 Bluebonnet Award. Remember you need to read 5 books to qualify to vote for your favorite in January 2018. We are planning something new and special this year if you qualify to vote. If you read 5 books you will also get to attend our Bluebonnet Breakfast in February!

In the library this month, we have been busy. Our kinder students have been busy exploring and learning with the Osmo while our third and fourth graders tried a Mystery Google Hangout. Of course, we still have lots of reading going on with our eBooks. We just added new eBooks too!
Every Wednesday, Ms. Conway has been letting our students read a poem on the morning announcements for National Poetry Month (April). Jenna is pictured here reading Spaghetti by Shel Silverstein.
If you have stopped by the BES library, then you have noticed that the students have been busy voting away. Each week, students are voting to find the top book at Brenham Elementary School. Come check out our bracket to see who is in the lead.
We put out our new touch screen search computers this week, and the students were so excited to use them. They loved the touch screen feature.
