Second grade had a blast on their field trip to the Lehi Hutchings Museum. We learned all about Utah history. We learned about pioneers, Indians, geology, wildlife, and even dinosaurs! Students even got to experience what being in jail would feel like and hold fossilized dinosaur poo! Yikes!

The 1st graders at Barnett Elementary are building their own home libraries, thanks to Mr. Logue. Mr. Logue visits our school every month to bring books to our 1st graders. His goal is to help get books into the children's homes so they can become better readers. Our students look forward to Mr. Logue's visits each month. He reads the story to each class and them gives each child their own book. Barnett 1st graders would like to say "Thank you Mr. Logue for helping us become better readers. WE LOVE OUR BOOKS!"

6th Grade NOVA Graduation

Barnett 6th graders graduate from NOVA!

For 13 weeks Barnett's  sixth graders have participated in lessons taught by Payson Police Officer Mark Bell. 

NOVA's mission statement is “NURTURING youth to seek out positive OPPORTUNITIES, internalize good VALUES, and to accept ACCOUNTABILITY for their choices in life."

The NOVA program focuses on the following principles:

  • Take advantage of good opportunities that come your way.

  • Accept responsibility for you choices and actions.

  • "Study the situation." In other words, think before you do something.

  • "What's right is right, and what's wrong is wrong." Don't get these things mixed up.

  • Make good "lifetime decisions" now and live by them.

  • Choose to have a "hero paradigm". This means that you always try to do your best, and create things of value for yourself and others.

  • Obtain as much knowledge as possible, and use that knowledge to become the most successful person you can be.

  • Choose to be a person who is kind, caring, and friendly, not a person who is angry, violent, and filled with hate.

  • Be careful of what you choose to put into your brain. If you put good things in, good things will come out.

The program is designed to help youth understand and deal with drugs, gangs, violence, bullying, anger management, internet safety, and negative media exposure.

All of the sixth grade teachers and students would like to thank officer Bell for his patience and dedication to help them learn tools to help them succeed in life!

Mrs. Lloyd's class had a very special visitor! Mckenzie Madsen came to our class and taught us some sign language! We have been studying sign language and doing our best to learn together but it was exciting to have an expert come teach us lots of new signs! We learned greetings, feelings, adjectives, animals and more! We even learned how to sign, "You are my sunshine" together. We can't wait to learn more!
In the pictures students are signing, Star Wars, I feel happy, hello, and dog!
