Janet is an amazing teacher and exemplifies everything said in this poem. She is inspiring, patient, caring, and really pays attention to all of her students. She has a great relationship with them and shows them that they are important. She is willing to do everything and anything asked of her. The special ed students and teachers at Barnett would be lost without her. We love Mrs. Franson!!!
The fourth grade students have been learning about Mountain Men. They learned about all of the Mountain Men who lived in Utah. The students worked hard to earn beaver pelts in class in preparation for the rendezvous. On Friday, the students got to use their beaver pelts to trade at the rendezvous for items from the trading post, play games and to get scones and other delicious treats.
If you walked through Barnett Elementary on Dr. Seuss' birthday you would have seen The Cat in the Hat, Thing 1, 2 and even 3! You could have talked with The Lorax, Fox in Socks, and Horton too! It was a great day as we dressed up as a Dr. Seuss character, celebrated reading in our classrooms, and every student went home with their very own book!
This week we had a special day for all our classes. It was Junior Achievement Day! Volunteers from US Synthetic, America First Credit Union, Junior Achievement of Utah, and many wonderful parents spent the morning with our students teaching them all about Financial Literacy. The students loved having guest teachers and learning so many important skills in math, literacy, and social skills! A big thank you to the many volunteers that spent time with us on this awesome day.
