Barnett Elementary Students celebrated another wonderful year at Barnett this past week. We had field day, a reading assembly, pizza with the principal, a water dodgeball fight against the teachers, a 6th grade vs. Faculty Kickball game, and even a trip to Payson Pool. It was wonderful to celebrate another year of hard work and lots of learning. Have a safe and happy summer Bulldogs! Remember to read and practice your math facts all summer!
Barnett was excited to celebrate all the hard work our Kindergartners have accomplished this school year at their graduation on Friday, May 20th. The students performed songs and pledges that they had been working on all school year. Congratulations to these awesome students and a big thanks to the teachers and the parents for helping get off to a great start in their school careers!
Barnett 4th graders set up a Utah county visitor's center showcasing each of Utah's 29 counties! Each student researched and wrote a report on the individual land forms, history, economy, and points of interest of a county. Students put a lot of hard work and effort into their projects! They all created posters and physical representations of their unique counties. Students also learned two songs about Utah and performed them for their parents. They were able to show off their talents and their hard work in a special program and visitor's center display. The whole school as well as parents, families, and community members came to appreciate their work! We sure have a talented group of 4th graders!
Today a real rocket scientist came to visit Mrs. Lloyd's class! Mark Johnson was kind enough to teach the whole class how to make rockets. We used card stock paper, decorated, rolled and taped together. We then used packing tape to make some fins for the rocket to help it be stabilized during its flight. When we finally went outside to launch the rockets we were amazed at how high and how far they were able to go! I guess now we are rocket scientists too!
This week our top 5th and 6th grade math students participated in a District Math Olympiad Competition. I was so proud of them and how hard they worked on each math problem. Every participant walked away with a new T-shirt for all of their effort. We would like to congratulate Sadie Ercanbrack who took 2nd place in the 6th grade division.
Barnett Elementary's 5th Graders put on a wax museum of people that have influenced American History. Students researched a person of their choice, discovered how they have impacted US History, and then wrote a report on the research they found. They designed their costumes and came up with memorized statements to share with museum visitors. All of their hard work really paid off today when they got to share all they had done with parents, families, teachers, and the rest of the school! They did an amazing job and we all agree that "It's great to be a 5th Grader!"
The Barnett Choir held their Spring Concert recently where they delighted the crowds with fun, popular songs that had the crowd singing along. Under the direction of their choir director, Mr. Cope, this choir of over 60 students has been working hard every week since January to put on a wonderful concert for the community. Well done Barnett Bulldogs!
This year, the 2nd graders in Ms. Nash's class has had so much fun collecting postcards from around the country and world! Today we did our final postcard count, and this is what we found out:
We collected 32 postcards!We have postcards from 14 different states and 6 different countries!
We've enjoyed learning more about the world around us and checking our mailboxes all year. Thanks to everyone who mailed us a postcard
