We celebrated our Term 3 Perfect Attendance Bulldogs this week! These students are helping us with our school WIG goal of being on time and at school everyday! Haley Bingham and Rebekah Hartman have had perfect attendance for all three Terms. They have been to school on time every day this school year! Congratulations to these awesome attendance leaders!
Barnett held their First Annual Leadership Day today and it was a grand success! Our school has been learning all about the 7 Habits of Happy Kids and what it means to be a leader this school year as we became a Leader in Me School. Students have been using the habits at school and home all school year and today was their chance to invite the community into the school and show off their leadership skills. Students played musical instruments, cheered, greeted, danced, sang, and spoke about the 7 Habits. Those that attended were taken on a school tour where tour guides and student leaders at tour stops taught about the 7 Habits and other Leadership Programs going on at our school. Barnett's student leaders shined today!
Fifth Graders at Barnett Elementary explored creating electrical circuits in small groups last week. Students enjoyed creating different closed circuits. They learned how to make a circuit that powered both a fan and a lightbulb. It was a great way to conclude our unit on electricity.
Barnett Elementary just finished their second round of our After School Robotics Course thanks to a partnership with UVU's School of Education Outreach Program. Each week 3rd-6th graders work with college students on how to code and program robots. The students had a great time using skills in Math, Science, and Technology. We end the course by inviting our parents to come and see what the students have been learning for the past 10 weeks and celebrate the great learning going on!
The 6th graders at Barnett have been working with Officer Bell from the Payson Police Department the past few months in the NOVA program. The NOVA (Nurturing Opportunites Values and Accountability) Program helps students to think about their futures as they make good choices with drugs and alcohol, electronics, and other obstacles that may come their way. Officer Bell works with the students each week teaching concepts and presenting activities for the students to particpate in. Students write their own consitution to declare what choices they will make in their lives to be able to earn their NOVA diploma. It was a great evening of celebration and the Barnett 6th grade leaders are on their way to do great things!
