Future principal in the making!

You read that right, students took over Mrs. Stoddard's job! These leaders were Principal for a Day. Thanks to the PTA Teacher Coupons that these leaders purchased at the Book Fair. These leaders wanted their shot at being principal and loved it. They did a great job and got to see how fun Mrs. Stoddard's job is. 

Barnett is an Energy Star School

Attributions: 

 Our school has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR® certification for superior energy performance!

ENERGY STAR Certified buildings and plants are verified to perform in the top 25 percent of buildings nationwide, based on weather-normalized source energy use that takes into account occupancy, hours of operation, and other key metrics. ENERGY STAR is the only energy efficiency certification in the United States that is based on actual, verified energy performance.

We’re honored to earn the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance at Barnett and appreciate the efforts of everyone who has been involved in its efficient operation. Saving energy is just one of the ways we show our community we care, and that we’re committed to doing our part to protect the environment and public health, both today and for future generations.

On average, ENERGY STAR certified buildings and plants use 35 percent less energy, cause 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and are less expensive to operate than their peers—all without sacrifices in performance or comfort.

Way to save energy Barnett Bulldogs!

Kindy 500

Our Kindergartners went for a trip around the country in their super speedy Kindy 500 cars. Their trip started off with a Kindy 500 parade for the school showing off their cool cars. Then they drove their Kindy cars to different stops and learned all about our National Symbols. They visited the Statue of Liberty, the White House, and learned all about the Bald Eagle to name a few spots. Our Kindergartners had a great trip!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! We at Barnett Elementary celebrated the favorite childhood author's birthday on March 2. Students and teachers were invited to dress up like their favorite book characters to celebrate the day. There were read alouds, and readathons!

Barnett is a Leader in Me school where we learn about habits and try to pracitce them as much as we can. We had some students who were demonstrating Habit number 6, Synergizing. Mrs. Taylor's 4th grade students taught Mrs. Fuhriman's 2nd grade students about the rock cycle! They used chocolate chips and as you can see in the pictures, it was a really good time!
