The fourth graders of Barnett Elementary went to Salem Pond, early in October, to learn more about wetlands. They spent the day studying the wildlife and plants around the pond. They tested the ph of the water and measured soil temperatures. They caught many bugs and compared different arthropods, looking for body parts, eyes, legs and adaptations. The students learned the purpose of wetlands and why we need to protect them. It was a day full of fun learning experiences.
On October 24, Barnett Bulldogs learned about Internet safety. Netsmartz presented to our leaders about how to be safe on the internet and some general guide lines to follow. He also discussed how to find a balance between technology and life. Technology can be great and is a wonderful tool that helps us in our lives. However, too much screen time can hurt us more than it can help us. Thank you to Netsmartz for taking the time to give us a great presentation.
The first week of October is Fire Safety Week and our Payson City Firefighters sponsor a coloring contest for all our students in grades 1-6 to help teach them about fire safety. A winner is chosen from each grade and this year's winners are:
JT Rivera, Maddison Luckau, Naomy Ortiz, Samson Ercanbrack, Eva Perkins, and Tiffany Wilde
These students had the opportunity to go have lunch with the Payson Fire Department, see the fire station, and even ride in a Payson Fire Truck! We are so grateful for our local Fire Department for treating our students to this once in a lifetime experience! They are awesome!
Students at Barnett Elementary have been working hard to earn Brag Notes. When a student earns a brag note their name is added to the Principal’s 200 Club Board. Brag notes can be earned by living the 7 Habits and being a leader in our school. Once the board is full of student names we have a drawing for books and prizes. Here are the students who won for October. Thanks for making so many good choices Barnett Bulldogs!
Just like that- the month of September has come and gone. However, within that month a few Top Dogs and Leaders stood out amongst the crowd. On Friday, September 29, we had our Bulldog Pride Assembly where we recognized those Top Dogs and Leaders of each class, and they received a certificate for their achievement. Students also learned where their pack stood in our Pack Points! Right now, Yellow is in the lead, but it is a super close race. The assembly came to a close, as our Top Dogs and Leaders did a victory lap through the halls of the school where students, teachers, and parents stood and cheered the students on for their success! Congratulations to those Top Dogs and Leaders! Barnett sure does have some awesome kids! Not only do we have awesome kids, but some pretty awesome teachers. Congratulations to our Alpha Dogs this month, Mrs. Peterson and Mrs. Davis!

Today, Barnett got to celebrate our principal. Barnett is lucky to have a truly GREAT leader in Mrs. Stoddard. “A great leader has brains, vision, soul, values, and heart.” She’s got it all and we are so lucky to have her!
It is hard to believe that it has been two weeks since we had our Family Night here at Barnet. Monday, September 25 Barnett Elementary held our first Family night of the year. The lunchroom was jampacked with people from wall to wall. The night began with some guest speakers who talked about Barnett being a Leader in Me school and the seven habits. We discussed the Lighthouse Committee, our school WIGs and the wonderful PTA. As our tummies grumbled awaiting a yummy hotdog dinner that was to come, we were entertained by the one and only, Green Man Group from Utah Valley University. Go Wolverines! The Green Man Group was a hit at family night and definitely pumped up the energy. After the performance, we gathered outside to enjoy hotdogs with one another. What a wonderful night it was to hang out and spend some time with teachers, families and of course the kids. Don’t miss our next Family Night! Barnett really knows how to have a good time.

The halls at Barnett are going to start smelling a lot better thanks to the new items in Mrs. Nettleton's classroom. Mrs. Nettleton teaches the UEI students in grades 4-6. Thanks to Walmart, Mrs. Nettleton’s class has new appliences for their class kitchen. Walmart donated blenders and toaster ovens to the class so that they could make food in their classroom. Earlier last month, the class made dirt cups, but now with their new appliences they can make a lot more. This week Mrs. Nettleton’s class made milkshakes! Yummy! Thank you to Walmart for their generous donation.
