Bluebonnets and Rocks…

It’s true; we have the BEST Library Media Specialists in the country!  Today was the sixth annual Midlothian ISD Bluebonnet Book Bowl and what an event!  Each elementary and middle school sends a team of learners to compete in the annual district “Jeopardy-style” competition.  Learners read and study the twenty Texas Bluebonnet-nominated books in order to answer questions with their team for points. The winners take home the coveted Bluebonnet Book Bowl Cup and bragging rights for the coming year (not that we’re competitive or anything).

Our Miller team came in second place and we’re so proud of their work today (and everyday).  Longbranch and Irvin tied for first place this year. The audience enjoyed the competition as much (or more) than the participants as they comprised those who auditioned for one of the six slots on their school’s team.  Many of them knew the answers to multiple questions and it was a challenge to keep from shouting out answers.  Congrats to our team members:  Jayme (captain), Jansson, Ryan, Heather, Mariah, and Autumn, as well as their sponsor, Mrs. Bolgiano, for many hours of reading, quizzing, and preparation for this fun event!  You ROCKED it!

Speaking of rocks, our first grade friends enJOYed a day of rock activities and exploration.  They were excited about their “finds” and shared several important facts about rocks located around our campus.

We are digging our engaging work and embracing our competitive spirit here at LME; here’s hoping you do too!  🙂
