Winners are fired up about their fun day!

These talented students entered the Fireman's coloring contest and won,  each representing the winner from  their grade levels. Because of their accomplishment, they had the opportunity to go the fire station and have lunch with the firefighters. They had so much fun and were so happy to go. What a great reward for some great work! Nice job Barnett leaders. Thank you to our firefighters who make this possible!

The first Bulldog Pride assembly of the year has already come and gone. This purpose of a Bulldog Pride assembly is to gather the school together to celebrate leaders among our school. In each class, the teacher chooses one student as Top Dog, someone who is taking their academics seriously and who does quality work. The teacher also chooses someone from their class as leader of the month. This is someone who is following the 7 habits and exhibiting great leadership skills. Our Top Dogs and Leaders of the Month were awarded last week with a certificate and had a chance to run in the victory lap! Bulldog Pride Assemblies also celebrate teachers! Mrs. Diamond and Mrs. Rush were voted as Top Dogs of the month! We love our students and our faculty!

Monday, September 24 was a HUGE day for Barnett Elementary. We had our first Family Night! We had such a great time. The BYU dunk team, and Cosmo came and put on a great show for our wonderful families. We also had Willie the Wolverine, UVU's mascot there as well to entertain. They were there for pictures and interacted with the kids. There was pizza and a show. Family night is special at Barnett. Our Barnett Leaders get to bring their families to a really fun time and be with each other. Thank you to everyone that came: the students, families, BYU dunk team, Cosmo and Willie. Because of you all we had a great night. Because of you, for one night Barnett was united in a whole community. 

Constitution Day

Monday, September 17, Barnett leaders gathered together in unity as we celebrated Constitution Day as a school. Our hosts of the assembly were members of the Student Lighthouse. Barnett Elementary joined together in singing “You’re a Grand Ole’ Flag”. Three sixth grade students, one from each class, gave amazing speeches on what Constitution day meant to them. Barnett Leaders were inspired as they thought about the freedoms we have and how grateful we are to live in such an amazing country. The students then sang, “The National Anthem”. What a wonderful day to be a Barnett Bulldog!

Barnett Elementary loves Day of Caring! United Way sponsors a day when businesses from all over the state give service in many different ways. So on September 13, Day of Caring, Barnett was lucky to have volunteers from US Synthetic come to our school for the morning and boy did they work hard. These awesome volunteers painted our basketball courts and provided us with new basketball nets. They painted all our blacktop games and made a new numberline on the blacktop for students and classes to use for a fun math activity. US Synthetic also brought our younger students on the small playground some new soccer goals and then they topped the morning off by helping to organize hundreds of books in our upstairs leveled library. A big thank you to the US Synthetic team for coming to our school on Day of Caring and making a difference for our students and teachers!

Barnett Leaders learned about their two new school Wigs for this year! Wig stands for Wildly Important Goal. At Barnett Elementary we have two Wildly Important Goals. The first goal is making a years worth of growth in our reading. The second goal is staying on track with our behavior. With the help of Mr. Cope and the WIG baseball team, Barnett Leaders were able to better understand how we make our goals and what we can do to reach them. It was a great assembly and we are excited to see all of the goals that will be met this year at Barnett Elementary. 

Bootcamp Assembly

Attention! On Wednesday, Barnett leaders were known as Barnett recruits. With teachers and students dressed up in camo, the scene was set for a great Bootcamp assembly. Sergeant Sheets led the Bootcamp assembly so our recruits could learn and master the rules. All of the teachers put on skits or played videos to help teach the recruits the rules of the school. This year, we are going to "Lead like Champions" and following the school rules will help! The recruits graduated from bootcamp, now all experts in following the rules. 

Lead like a Champion

Today was our first assembly of the school year. Barnett Leaders gathered together to learn what our new school theme is for this year. This year we are going to Lead like Champions! Many of our leaders were wearing their brand new school shirts for this awesome spirit Friday! Mrs. Stoddard told us about what it means to be a champion. Not always are champions people who win trophies, but who are leaders in everyway of their lives. Barnett Bulldogs will leave this year knowing, "I am a champion!"

First day jitters? Not for the kids at Barnett Elementary! Barnett Elementary is a great place to come to school! Students for their first day, walked down the Blue Carpet. They were cheered on by fellow students, teachers, past teachers and community members as they made their way to class. They were met at the door by their own teachers, eagerly waiting for each student. Here is to another great year at Barnett Elementary where we have amazing teachers and amazing kids!
