Students at Barnett Elementary are rewarded for good behavior. The February good behavior incentive was an inspiring assembly by New York Giants linebacker, and former BYU football star, Bryan Kehl. His message was to "hit it hard" and always give everything you've got. Students were excited to get a photo of Bryan and some were lucky enough to get his autograph.

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!
