The third grade Grandparents' Day at Barnett Elementary is always a fun day for third graders and their grandparents, not to mention the parents that come to watch the program. The students were excited to eat turkey and mashed potatoes with their grandparents for lunch. Some students took their grandparents on a tour of the school, while others sat and talked with their grandparents who had come for the special day. At 1pm on October 9, third graders took the stage to perform their prepared program for their grandparents, parents, and other family members, singing songs such as “Edelweiss” and “Grandma’s Feather Bed.” Students also gave speaking parts and recited poetry. After the performance, the students and their grandparents treated themselves to delicious cookies provided by the Barnett PTA. We love our grandparents and are glad we could share this special day with them!
The Payson Fire Department held their Fire Prevention Week coloring contest this month and the winners from Barnett are: Myla Millett, Kira Muir, Sarah Rash, Jaycee Johnson, Emmalee Epps, and McKenzie Mitchell. These students got to take a ride on a fire truck to the fire station where they enjoyed a delicious lunch with Payson city firefighters. We want to thank the Payson Fire Department for helping our students learn about fire safety in a fun way!
Barnett students showed their crazy hair today and their commitment to live a drug free life! Tomorrow we finish out our Red Ribbon Week with "One School-One Goal-Bully and Drug Free!" We want all our students to wear their Barnett shirts and school colors (navy blue and yellow) to show school spirit and school unity!
Students from Barnett were granted free tickets from Gary Jones at RE/MAX Real Estate recently for making good choices. Any student that had earned a Barnett Brag Note so far this year had their name in a drawing. Two students from every grade were visited by Gary Jones, bullfighter Chuck Swisher, and "Wild Child" Troy Lerwill who gave each student 2 tickets to the Bullfighting Event that took place in Spanish Fork last week. We would like to thank RE/MAX Real Estate for donating the tickets to our students!
Students at Barnett Elementary are off to a great start this school year! They have been working hard 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 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 some of our winners for the month of September. Thanks for making so many good choices Barnett Bulldogs!
