Fifth Graders at Barnett studied American History all year long. As an end of the year project, students chose a famous American and learned all about them. They then reported on them and presented what they had learned to their classmates. We love learning about leaders!

Barnett was excited to celebrate all the hard work our Kindergartners have accomplished this school year at their graduation on Friday, May 19th. The students performed songs and pledges that they had been working on all school year. Congratulations to these awesome students and a big thanks to the teachers and the parents for helping get off to a great start in their school careers! We also gave a special thank you to Mrs. Comte, Mrs. Evans and their grandma helpers who work so hard for our students.
In fourth grade students learn about Utah history. As part of a unit on pioneers, the fourth graders at Barnett Elementary had a pioneer day. The students started the day by learning about the territorial house in Fillmore. They heard stories about pioneers and learned that even pioneers occasionally played pranks on each other. Then the students got to work. Students learned how to weave, make butter, rope and candles, saw and plane wood, chisel stone, create pioneer toys and how to card and spin wool. The students quickly realized that being a pioneer was hard work! Then students learned what pioneers did for fun. They learned pioneer dances and played pioneer games. It was a very fun, busy day.

Barnett Bulldogs hosted a "Penny War" for students to raise money to donate to the Quentin Muir Scholarship Fund. Quentin, a former Bulldog, passed away from cancer. The Muir Family created a scholarship fund in his memory. Barnett Bulldogs wanted to help. They donated over $2400 to the Muir Family!
First grade had a blast today on our field trip. First we went to the BYU Bean Museum. We got to walk around and see all kinds of animals! We also had an exciting presentation where we classified animals and saw some live animals! Then we spent some time at the "All Together" park in Orem. It was an exciting day!
The students sat on the blacktop, anxiously awaiting the arrival of a helicopter at their school. Never before had a helicopter landed on the back soccer field of Barnett Elementary. They could hear the sounds of a helicopter, which only built their anticipation. When they finally saw the helicopter come around school building, many leaped out of their seats in excitement! A helicopter landing at Barnett: a memory that will stay with them their entire life!
How was this once in a lifetime experience made possible? Mountain View Hospital CEO, Kevin Johnson, came to Barnett Elementary yesterday via helicopter. Barnett Principal, Mrs. Stoddard, also was able to ride with him, which was quite the surprise for the students! Mr. Johnson was so impressed after attending Barnett’s 1st Annual Leadership Day that he wanted to celebrate the leaders of Barnett Elementary by bringing the medical helicopter to Barnett and allowing the students to tour it! Additionally, Mountain View Hospital provided popsicles and custom made bracelets to every student! Mr. Johnson also spoke with students about the value of leadership in their community and how excited he is to see the students learning about leadership at such a young age. He celebrated their success at Leadership Day and also talked with them about careers in the healthcare field.
Barnett faculty, staff, and students are thrilled to see so much support from Mountain View Hospital and Mr. Johnson, a community leader and example. We are very grateful for his help in fostering leadership in our students and supporting them at Leadership Day. Thank you, Mountain View Hospital, for being leaders that support leaders!
