The 2nd graders attended a field trip to the Bean Museum at BYU. They attended a show highlighting animals and the habitats in which they live. They were able to see a snake, a cockroach, and a frog! They could even touch the snake! Touring the museum, they saw the new exhibit of the Titanoboa- the world's largest snake from ancient days. We went to North Park for lunch and some play time. It was a little cold, but they had a grand time!
Nebo School District will be hosting a series of Parent Awareness Nights. The topics of discussion will include mental health and safety planning with youth. Several community service providers will be present to answer question and help individuals to access services. See the event flyer for more information.
Borealis Blue Pack had a fun time at their party today. Blue pack were the winners for Term 2. Let me tell you a little about the packs. The entire Barnett Elementary, faculty and students were placed into packs. They were placed into a pack by spinning a wheel that designated a pack for them. Then as an entire pack they try to earn pack points by being on their best behavior whereever they are in the school. Any faculty member in the school can give a student a pack point for good things they see happening. Borealis Blue worked so hard in Term 2 and earned the party. It was a pie face party! At the end of the party, students enjoyed an ice cream sandwich as they watched, some of their very own teachers get pie faced!
Barnett Elementary knows how important it is to be prepared. Even in the most serious incidents. Our first week back from Winter Break, we had a fire drill. The alarms sound and flash, but no worries, Barnett students know what to do. They quickly line up and are prepared to exit out the closest door. Teachers lead them out to a designated safe location and take count of the students they have. When all students are accounted for, the classes reenter the school knowing they have just accomplished another important drill.
