Barnett’s 6th grade classes have participated in a program called N.O.V.A. over the last few months, which teaches principles of bettering your life through learning life skills and building an awareness against alcohol and drugs. As part of the requirements for their N.O.V.A. class, the Sixth grade collected items to donate to the Christmas Box House.  Each student was asked to earn and donate one item. During the month of December the 6th grade students created crocheted beanies from looms the teachers had received a grant for the previous year.
