We learned about the Trail of Tears/Indian Removal Act on Monday. Students learned about the different paradigms surrounding this situation. We then acted out different parts of that story using tableaus. Students then wrote a letter to President Jackson expressing their opinion on the Indian Removal Act.
5th Grade enjoyed having our district visual art specialist, Mr. Woods, come into our classes last week and teach us how to paint using watercolors. We focused on making stormy skies and the damages it can do to the Earth's surface.
We have been learning all about graphs in first grade! Today we were visited by a real statistician! He played 3 songs for us on the ukulele. We all voted on our favorite songs and graphed the results. Then we analyzed our graph! We are on our way to be graphing experts!

Second Grade performed their Christmas program for their parents and families on Dec 22. We sang some fun, old-fashioned Christmas songs! The students were able to share what their favorite part or favorite memory of Christmas is. We were treated to hear a poem in Spanish as well! The students did a fabulous job and prepared well and quickly in a short amount of time. We are very proud of them!
America's First Credit Union donated over 100 pairs of shoes to Barnett students right before Christmas. The selected students enjoyed opening their shoes and several had them on before the end of the day. Thanks America's First!
