Student Created Bluebonnet Projects:

Josue created this original idea for Hot Diggity Dog. His little story summary hot dog was cleverly labeled with the beginning, middle, and end using the parts of the bun. See the middle of the story inside the bun? How smart is this kid? Josue is also the FIRST ECDC student to meet the requirements to be eligible to receive an invitation to the Bluebonnet Breakfast.
