Texas Bluebonnet Award Announcement at Texas Book Festival

Sixteen poised, enthusiastic Forest North readers took to the Texas Book Festival stage yesterday and helped announce the 2015-2016 Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List.  This announcement is an annual highlight of the Texas Book Festival. These students read annotations and showed the books proudly, representing our school, district and state well. Congratulations to Ceil Raia (3rd), Sean Lee (3rd), Aiden Allgood (3rd), Lola Mutz (3rd), Luke Contreras (3rd), Savannah Ivey (3rd), Talia Simpkins (3rd), Da'quan Martin (4th), Bianca Sanchez (4th), Lilian Quach (4th), Hondo Sanchez (4th), Sebastian Guerra (5th), Abiha Zulfiqar (5th), Cecilio Sanchez (5th), Christopher McKinney (5th), and Mercedes Salazar (5th).  I was so proud of them!  Special shout out to Mrs. Shetty & Ms. Lynch who were there to support our students and cheer them on with me.  Check out this video for more information about next year's nominees and our students' memorable performances.
