On September 14, Barnett had some special helpers. On this day, the first and second graders had volunteers from United Way come and teach them for the first half of the day. Mrs. Davis said, “Shawn and Jason from US Synthetic came for Day of Caring. Students had an awesome time! They were so impressed with us, they wanted a selfie!” Mrs. Fuhriman’s class also had a great time with their volunteers! Thank you to United Way and the volunteers! You definitely impacted all of us here at Barnett with your Day of Caring!

Barnett's WIG Rockin' Assembly

Attributions: 

Barnett students enjoyed a Rock Band concert by the one hit wonder WIG Rock band last week. The W.I.G.( or Wildly Important Goal) Rock Band introduced our school WIGs for the year. As a school we will work on two Wildly Important Goals(WIGs) this year. 

The first one is to have 90% on time student attendance for the entire school year. We will award individual students, classes, and grade levels that meet our goal. Classes will have their class attendance posted outside their doors each day so we can celebrate the importance of being to school on time!

Our next school WIG is to improve 1,025 reading levels as a school this school year. As each student improves a reading level they will get to put a rock on our WIG Mountain and help us move Buddy the Bulldog up the mountain towards our goal. Students can help achieve this goal by reading at home every night, reading fiction and non-fiction, talk about books with family and friends, and participate in their reading groups here at school. 

We are excited to synergize as leaders at Barnett to meet both of our WIGs. Students will be making their own personal WIGs in class these coming weeks as well.

Barnett Boot Camp

Barnett cadets received orders to attend a back to school bootcamp at 0930 hours at the first of September. Cadets were marched into the assembly and greeted by General Stoddard. Once there, they received instructions on their mission for the school year: to be leaders, live the 7 habits, and keep our school clean and bully-free. 

 The cadets are excited to embark on their mission and the staff is excited to get them there. What a fun way to start off the year!
