Barnett Faculty Synergizing Fun

 Our teachers came together in teams to make gingerbread displays.  The rules were simple, your entry could not already be put together and you had one hour to do it all.  The creations were displayed in the school and then given away to students to take home and decorate their homes with.  It was a new tradition of working togehter, synergizing, and having fun.  ENJOY THE PICTURES!

Principals 200 Club Winners


Students at Barnett Elementary have been working hard this month 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, working hard in school, and being a good example of a leader just to name a few things. Once the board is full of student names we have a drawing for books and prizes. Here are our winners for the month of December. Thanks for making so many good choices Barnett Bulldogs!

Leaders at Barnett Elementary had the opportunity to attend a BYU Women's basketball game in November. Students that exhibited great behavior were able to go to the game. On the morning of the 21st, students loaded up in buses and headed for the Marriott Center. There students were given a free pom pom to use to cheer for BYU. BYU was up against UVU- in a cross town game. BYU ened up winning the game! Barnett students laughed, cheered, and danced for a chance to be on the big screen. It was a great day awarding the leaders who worked so hard to get there. Keep working hard Bulldogs! Thank you BYU for creating memories for so many kids! 

Take a Veteran to School Day

Amy Davis

Barnett Bulldogs honored local Veterans in their Veterans Day Assembly on November 10. The Barnett Choir sang a series of songs that honored the Veterans. The whole school joined in on a song for the grand finale. After the assembly, Veterans went to classrooms as part of "Take a Veteran to School". They told stories, showed artifacts from their time in the service, and answered questions from the students. This is one of the most special days of the whole school year where we were able to meet fathers and mother, grandparents, uncles and aunts who serve and served our country.  Thank you to the men and women in the military for everything you do. We love you.
