Gobble Off 2014

Every year students get to compete for the best turkey gobble in the school.  To prepare, each class did a competition to decide on a winner from each class. Then each of those winners got to compete with the rest of the student winners in the school.  After narrowing down the 20 or so candidates to three gobblers, fourth-grader, Enrique Barrajas won the all-school Gobble Off!  Enrique won a turkey to take home; the other contestants took home a large candy bar.

Wild About Reading!

This year's theme for Barnett's reading program is Wild About Reading! In keeping with that theme, students who turned in their reading calendars for October and met their goal were able to throw a sponge at their teachers.  It was a fun, motivating assembly for students--and the teachers didn't get too wet.

On Tuesday, November 11, 2014, students at Barnett Elementary celebrated Veteran's Day.  Mrs. Ronda Hair and Ms. Robyn Curtis organized an assembly that included the presentation of the United States flag, recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, and the Barnett choir singing two numbers--The Star Spangled Banner and God Bless America.  Also, several short videos were shown to focus students' thoughts on the sacrifices of the soldiers who sacrifice their time and lives to defend our country.  Many students shared statements they had written about why they appreciate veterans.
