The students at Barnett Elementary know how to make good choices.

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.
