If you haven't seen the YouTube craze entitled, Kid History videos, you should definitely watch them! Not only are they hilarious, they are related to the Barnett first grade teacher, Mrs. Patricia Hanson. Mrs. Hanson was able to introduce her nephews to the Barnett students on Friday, April 26, to shouts of excitement and acclamation.
April 25, 2013 marked a beautiful, sunny, clear day for the fifth grade track meet. Students were able to compete with other fifth graders in the Payson area in this annual event. Barnett fifth graders placed in first, second, and third places in several of the track and field events. It was a fun and exciting time for all the students and teachers.
The students of Mrs. Spencer’s sixth grade class at Barnett Elementary had the opportunity of working on a quilt for the Veterans Nursing home that is under construction on North Main Street in Payson. Belle Piatt, a grandmother of one the students, provided the squares of material and the skills of her sewing to put it together. The students in Mrs. Spencer’s class decorated the pieces with the freedoms they enjoy because of the service provided by the loyal and brave American veterans.
The Barnett Transitional Kindergarten class went to the Payson Fire Station and we learned about fire safety. We got to see a fire fighter dressed up in his clothes that keep him safe in a fire. He looked a lot different with his fireman clothes on! We learned how to crawl on the floor if there is smoke in the room and how to feel a door with the back of our hands to see if it is hot. If it is hot, we should NOT open the door. We even got to spray the fire hose!
On April 19, the first grade students at Barnett Elementary went on a field trip to Hogle Zoo. It was such a fun day and the students were able to see many animals. Some of their favorite animals to see were the giraffes, polar bears, and monkeys.
