The first graders of Barnett Elementary received a visit from a favorite book character earlier this month. Fancy Nancy came to visit and share her stories with the children. She also taught the students how to sort as they helped her distinguish between the fancy and plain items she brought with her.

Teachers at Barnett Elementary are continually watching for students doing exceptional things at school. We are excited that we get to recognize those great students with brag notes. Students that receive brag notes get to draw numbers for raffle prizes and also become part of the Principal’s 200 club. The faculty and staff at Barnett are very proud of our remarkable students and look forward to a new fantastic group of 200.
Barnett Elementary honored our country's Veterans with a USO show on Nov.11, 2009. Three of its teachers sang "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" and the school choir sang "I'm Proud to be an American" with the school librarian, Christine Muniz, conducting. The program ended with a moment of silence to honor the soldiers fighting today and the veterans who have fought in past wars.
Mrs. Lewis' 6th grade class at Barnett Elementary celebrated the end of their Egyptian studies with an Egyptian Mummy Day. Students learned how to make Egyptian-style art and writing and made and wore costumes and cartouches. They also prepared and wrapped dolls to look like mummies and mummified hot dogs and apples and stored them away to do experiments with later.
