Barnett Elementary will be holding registration this coming Thursday, August 1st from 8am-4pm. We look forward to seeing all the families come in to register, sign up for PTA, and find out your child's teacher if you are in grades 1-6. Please make sure you log in to SIS and update any information that has changed before coming to make the process go a little quicker for you. If you have new neighbors be sure to tell them about this important date.
Monday, May 20, was the final reading assembly for the 2012-2013 school year at Barnett. It started out with a bang with the Barnett teachers doing the Harlem Shake up on the stage. Books, money, games, outside toys, backpacks, and HangTime passes were given out for reading tickets, math fact tickets, and brag notes. In the lower grades, students got to choose from bubbles, as well; in the upper grades, students got to choose from candy and an iTunes gift card, also.
This Spring, the fantastic Barnett Choir Performed their "We Love Our World" Concert. The choir consists of 125 students from 2nd grade - 6th grade. Their choir director Christine Muniz is VERY proud of them, and the hard work that went into practicing for the concert. There were solo's done on the piano, and singing. Fun songs were shared, and some with actions to make your heart smile. Even the Alumni came up to join in a really special song that has been a Favorite! The Barnett Choir has been going strong for almost 8 years. This was a very meaningful concert, and Mrs.
The beginning of the 2012-2013 school year at Barnett began with a vision, a goal, for the students. This goal was to get a school wide total of 70,000 days read this year--that means that 80% of the Barnett students had to read 5 days or more this year. Not only did the students meet this goal, they surpassed it! They read 79,500 days, which was 104.5% of the original goal! It was fantastic!
Every year the fifth graders at Barnett Elementary are able to research an important person in United States history, create a speech, come up with a creative costume, and present themselves as that person during a wax museum presentation. The students this year did an amazing job coming up with creative costumes to try to imitate the person they were representing. Not only did they look great, but the students put a lot of time into researching their person and competently gave information as about 500 people filed through the lunch room on the afternoon of May 2, 2013.
