Barnett 6th Grade receives a "one-of-a-kind" field trip grant to educators from Target. In October, Mrs. Leach submitted an application to be a recipient of this grant and in January was informed that they were awarded the funds, which in turn allows all the 6th grade classes at Barnett to go to the Clark Planetarium in Salt Lake City.

The students experienced the Foucault Pendulum, looked at moonscapes, touched meteors, and observed seasons and planets in the Hansen Dome Theatre. It was a whole day of exciting fun and learning!

On February 18 all of Barnett Fourth Grade observed the wild in Diamond Fork Canyon on snow shoes. The Forest Service put on great presentations that were both educational and fun. The students learned about wildlife and their winter patterns, adaptations and the effect of weather on animals. They learned so much that they all want to go back!

The annual 3rd Grade Spelling Bee took place at Barnett on February 5th, 2010.  The students competed in a class spelling bee first and from there the top three spellers moved on to the final round where they competed against the other classes.  All 12 finalists did a great job.  Grace Haskell and Jordan Mathews came in 2nd and 3rd place and Adam Call won with word "enemies."  Congratulations to all who participated!

Barnett Students are reading, reading, reading!

Great things are happening at Barnett Elementary. Students are reading, reading, reading. They can now take home books in English accompanied with the same book in Spanish. For many parents who read only Spanish, this has been the first time that they have been able to sit and read with their child. One parent excitedly shared that he and his daughter are "reading together every night." The check out library has been organized by fifth grade students: Diana Guillen, Alejandra Sanchez, Jonathan Cordova, and Mario Cruz.

The Nebo School District is also sponsoring the Family Literacy Center. This center offers FREE adult and student (K-6) English instruction as well as free childcare for babies and pre-schoolers. Call Maria Zambrano with questions at 801-361-0891.
