The Kindergartners at Barnett had such a fun time at the Kindy 500. We started with a parade of box cars that the students made, race cars, bugs, firetrucks, school buses and so many more. Parents and other grade levels loved seeing the little kids parade around the school so proudly. Kindergartners then went on a tour of the country (classrooms in our school) to see American symbols and landmarks. So many helpful teachers played parts, Betsy Ross, the Statue of Liberty, Abraham Lincoln, and others taught about the White House, the Liberty Bell, Mount Rushmore, and the Bald Eagle. We had a blast learning about these things and places that are important to our country's history, and doing activities to help us remember them!
Just before we went on spring break, we acknowledged the top dogs and leaders in our school. Teachers choose who in their class is turning in exceptional work. These students take pride in their work and always show that it truly is their best. These students are our top dogs. Teachers then choose from their class, who is living the 7 habits everyday. These are students who are working hard to show and establish their leadership skills. These students become our leaders of the month. We started off our assembly with our Barnett cheerleaders. We are so lucky here at Barnett to have such amazing students!
The Utah Shakespeare Festival is once again hitting the road with its Shakespeare-in-the-Schools touring production – this year performing one of the world’s first psychological thrillers, William Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

Michael Bahr, the festival’s education director directed this production. “For many of our audiences this will be the first time they have seen a professional Shakespeare production,” said Bahr. “This program seeks to entertain, enrich, and educate with innovative and accessible performances to rural and urban schools and communities, many of which would not have this opportunity otherwise.”
