With the year finishing out, we have the last of our track meets. The third grade track meet was the first for these Barnett Bulldogs. They were awesome! They all did their very best and kept great growth mindsets. They cheered on their friends, and even kids they didn't know. Barnett formed their own little cheer squad to support all of the racers! It was a great day and all were proud to be Barnett Bulldogs!
The Barnett School Choir performed their Spring Concert this week and did a wonderful job! They sang and danced through some fan favorites and even sang about being the amazing leaders they are. We are so proud of how hard they worked by coming to school early every week to prepare for this special concert. Great job Bulldog Choir!
Barnett Family Night was so fun! We Sharpened the Saw and Synergized with each other. There were fun activities that were team building. The food was so good! Thank you to The Best Tacos in Town, Kona Ice, and Smokin' Roadhouse Food Trucks. Thanks Barnett Bulldogs for coming and having fun with us!
The first graders have been working so hard the last few weeks to learn dances, songs and speaking parts for their program. Friday, April 27th was finally their big day to shine for their parents! The program was called "Make Your Mark" and was based on stories and poems from author Peter H. Reynolds. First graders performed dances and told stories about sharing, being a friend, trying new things and helping others.
The fourth graders had a great Pioneer Day. They learned that being a pioneer was hard work by doing activities like churning butter, making candles, sawing and planing wood, chiseling rock and other labor intensive activities. They learned to square dance and play pioneer games as they tried to fathom what life was like before the internet. It was a very fun day full of hands-on learning.
This is such a fun time of year for Barnett students as we buckle in for our last few weeks of school. One of the favorite events that happen this time in the year are the track meets. Barnett Bulldogs, 5th and 6th grades had their track meets this last week and they did awesome! Some of our Bulldogs even finished in the top 3 in their events. Great job Bulldogs! The track meet is a great time to get out in the nice sunny weather and participate in some athletic events with some other schools. Good luck to our 3rd and 4th grade Bulldogs who have their track meets later this week! Good luck and Go Bulldogs!
Barnett 3rd Graders had an amazing field trip this Thursday. They went to the Bean Museum at BYU. This was to help reinforce their knowledge in living and nonliving things. They walked around the Bean Museum, where they saw many different types of animals, including a Liger! After exploring, Barnett Bulldogs went to watch a presentation where there were three live animals! At the end of the presentation they had an opportunity to pet a Tegu Lizard named Simon. After the Bean Museum, students went to a park to have lunch and then it was back to school! Such a fun day with such fun students!
We want to congratulate Mrs. Standish, our wonderful 5th grade teacher, who is Barnett's Teacher of the Year! She was recognized at the April School Board Meeting with the following comments said about her:
“Jaimie is a natural leader and has a hard work ethic, pleasant attitude, and an amazing belief in students. She is an integral part in developing the Leader in Me program at Barnett Elementary. Jaimie teaches these students leadership qualities and gives them that desire to have a voice and use their leadership skills in all they do. She empowers her students to work hard, tackle a challenge, and have curiosity and desire to learn new things.”
We are lucky to have such an amazing teacher working at our school!Thanks for all you do Mrs. Standish!
