This last month, Ms. Zylstra's first-grade class and Mrs. Stout's second-grade class, won their grade level competitions for most days read in the month. In order to win this prestigious award, the students must turn in their reading calendars and have read at least twenty minutes for the day to count. All the days are counted up and whichever class has the most days read for the month receives the reading trophy and fame (their picture in the paper) or fortune (a prize from the principal's treasure chest)! These classes worked hard to be the champions. Well done Bulldogs!
I am posting a few pictures from Mrs. Stoddard's wedding. I really wanted to see pictures from her wedding and thought that others might want to as well. So after a few months of begging, and a few weeks of procrastination :), here are a few of the beautiful pictures of when our Day became a Stoddard. Thanks Mrs. Stoddard for letting me post these!
This last week, Barnett Elementary's whole second grade was able to venture to Lehi on a field trip to the Hutchings Museum. Through seven different rooms, the museum taught the second grade everything from trilobites to the pony express. The kids were able to identify their birth stones, touch fossilized dinosaur droppings, and hang out in an old jail cell. Thanks to the museum and the parent volunteers, the field trip was a great success!
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 making good choices, working hard in school, and being a good friend or helper 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 this month. Thanks for making so many good choices Barnett Bulldogs!

Barnett’s 6th-grade incentive for February was a Renaissance Dinner and Dance. Students helped donate bread, soup, veggies and refreshments for an etiquette dinner. Dressed in Medievalattire or formal wear, the 6th graders learned how to talk socially and learned appropriate behavior for dining in a restaurant. Students then learned different dances where they changed partners and other classics like the bunny hop. This was a hit with the sixth grade and taught them proper etiquette for the future.
Sixth-grade students got a little “sock” crazy on Dr. Seuss’ birthday. They wore crazy socks to celebrate “Fox in Socks” and other memorable Seuss books. There were special visitors throughout the day including Cat in the Hat and an adorable fish. What a great day.
On February 24th the kindergarten classes had a great time running the Kindy 500. With their homemade vehicles, the children went on a road trip in our school to learn about our American Symbols. Two of our students, Megan Jacobson and Megan Durrant, led the way in the parade of cars. The children met Abraham Lincoln, the Statue of Liberty, and Betsy Ross. They learned about the American eagle, the White House, Mt. Rushmore and the Liberty Bell. It was a very successful activity,and we look forward to another road trip with our students next year.
Our third graders have been working so hard the last month to ensure that they are on their best behavior and learning as much as they can. In order to applaud their efforts, the third grade team received help from two willing parents and was able to put on a minute to win it party. The students had a great time as they tried the various challenges and cheered on their teams. These students work hard, and finally they had a chance to play hard too.
