Student Lighthouse Team- Canned Food Drive

Barnett's Student Lighthouse Team ran a Canned Food Drive December 12th-16th. We are so proud of our students for raising  1,198 cans! Well done, Barnett! Thank you for all who donated! 

Students organized how the cans would be collected, how the drive would be publicized, and how they would motivate their fellow students to bring canned goods in to donate to local families! It was quite the undertaking, but they handled all of it. From counting cans daily, to adding up totals, to creating posters,and even clues for the mystery prize, students used the 7 Habits to help them run this canned food drive and make it a massive success! 

5th Graders Explore Magnets

Attributions: 

5th Graders are studying magnetism in science. The students have loved making compasses, learning what types of materials magnets attract and repel, drawing magnetic fields, and using their knowledge of magnets to do "magic". 

Barnett Attends BYU Kids Day

Barnett attened the BYU Kids Day to see a Women Basketball Game against Weber State. Students received free season passes to BYU Womens Basketball Games! They got to meet Cosmo the Cougar and even see trick basketball shots. Perhaps the students' favorite part was getting on the dance cam! It was  fun day for all!

We celebrated our monthly Bulldog Pride Assembly on November 30th, which is also our principal's birthday. To celebrate Mrs. Stoddard's birthday, each class voted on the one word they would use to describe Mrs. Stoddard. Then, teachers came up and attached a balloon to her, while their students said their class word for Mrs. Stoddard.

Mrs. Evans Celebrates Thanksgiving

Mrs. Evans

Mrs. Evans' class had a yummy Thanksgiving feast the day before our break.   We have been talking about what it means to synergize because when we all help, great things happen. We were thankful for all the helpers that day.  We had mothers bring food and they stayed to help prepare and serve our feast.  We also had high school students come in to help.  They brought pilgrim hats for each child, helped serve the meal and sang songs with the kids.  It was a fun day, one I think the children will always remember.
