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.
Students at Barnett Elementary have been working hard this month to earn Brag Notes. When a student earns a brag note their name is added to the Principal’s 200 Club Board. Brag notes can be earned by living the 7 Habits, making good choices, working hard in school, and being a good friend or helper just to name a few things. Once the board is full of student names we have a drawing for books and prizes. Here are our winners for this month. Thanks for making so many good choices Barnett Bulldogs!
When Mr. Davis isn't working hard to make our school look nice and clean, you can find him hanging up a bulletin board or this week you could find him sharing his talents in our school library. The students were learning about Native Americans this week and Mr. Davis came in and showed the students how to chip glass and rock to create tools just like the Native Americans did. Thanks for sharing so many talents with us Mr. Davis!
Barnett students gathered together to celebrate another Bulldog Pride Assembly. This was an assembly where we were celebrating all of the amazing students who recieved the Top Dog and Leader of the Month awards. Students are chosen by their teachers. Top Dogs go to students who are working hard in school. They have a great work ethic and try their best in everything they do. Leaders are those that are living the 7 habits. They also are great examples at following the rules and being kind to all those around them. Congrats to our two alpha dogs for this month. Mrs. Murdoch works so hard for her students and always goes the extra mile. Mrs. Johns is our wonderful art teacher, who also helps with interventions for those that need them. Keep working hard Barnett Leaders. We can't wait to see who the next Top Dogs and Leaders of the month are!
Barnett Elementary had our Leadership Day on February 7. It is a day that we as a school can celebrate and demonstrate our leadership skills by sharing how we use the 7 habits everyday. The 7 habits that we live by are:
1. Be proactive
2. Begin with the end in mind
3. Put first things first
4. Think win-win
5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood
7. Sharpen the saw
We had our guests become a part of a pack and participate in a pack activity. Afterwards, we moved the fun to the lunchroom where our guests watched a program put on by every student in the school. Hopefully if you attended our leadership day, you left feeling excited about the habits and hope to implement them into your life. If you didn't have a chance to come this year, watch for reminders for next year's leadership day. It is definitely something you don't want to miss!
