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.

In November, we had a chance to honor those that are top dogs in their classrooms and students who are showing true leadership. In a school full of leaders it is sure hard to choose! We are so proud of our November Top Dogs and Leaders and look forward to more coming in just a couple of days when we have our December Bulldog Pride Assembly. For the month of November our Alpha Dogs were Amy Davis a second grade teacher and Spencer a UEI technician. They work so hard here at Barnett Elementary and we are so thankful for them and the work they do here in our school. This Bulldog Pride was more special than the others. It was on our dear Principal's Birthday! The whole school sang her happy birthday as she blew out 40 candles! Holy cow!

Mrs. Standish’s 5th grade math class did a math project in which they calculated the costs of a holiday cookie exchange. They had to use their knowledge of addition and subtraction of decimals to complete the project. They celebrated with a holiday cookie exchange and STEM Christmas tree challenge.
2nd Graders rocked the holidays with their Christmas program. We learned new songs this year and the kids had a great time learning them. The kid's favorite songs were I want to be an Elf and Hip Hop Reindeer. Parents thank you for your support and Mrs. Hixson thanks for making our program awesome!Merry Christmas to all!
A good teacher has been defined as an individual who can understand those who are not good at explaining, and explain to those who are not very good at understanding. Dwight D. Eisenhower
This is so true of Shalyn. As long as I have know her(which is a very long time) she has always been a kind and caring person. She is also very happy and positive. Shalyn is always willing to give it a try, no matter what is whether it is ice skating/dancing or finding solutions for each students’ needs. She does not give up and works until she finds something that will help. She lives for the success and happiness of others, especially her students. It is no coincidence that her classroom is a place where her students feel safe, valued, and successful. Shalyn is a loving and hardworking person who brings happiness and support to everyone she works with.
Congratulations Shalyn! We are so lucky to have you at Barnett!
