Second graders at Barnett Elementary got a special treat at the end of October when Fire Chief Scott Spencer visited the school to explain some of the essentials of fire safety at home and at school. The students were able to watch Colby Cox (in photo) get dressed up in all of the gear of a fireman as Chief Spencer explained what each article of clothing was used for. You could hear the 2nd-graders "ooo" and "ahhh" as they learned about the different layers of protective clothing and what to do in a fire at home.
Several students were awarded a trip on a fire truck and some lunch made by the Payson Fire Department for being great artists. During Fire Prevention Week, one of the activities was a coloring contest Mrs. Ellsworth, the art specialist, had grades 1-6 participate in. Students turned in a coloring sheet and the fire department picked the best one from each grade. Those students were then able to ride on a fire truck to the fire station where they enjoyed a BBQ with the firefighters. Congratulations students on being wonderful artists and great examples for Barnett!
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 our board is full of student names we have a drawing for books and prizes. We were able to fill up the Principal's 200 Board twice the month of October! Here are the winners! Thaks for making so many good choices Barnett Bulldogs!
Rudolph Giuliani, former mayor of New York City, declared, “What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies.”
