Barnett Elementary School’s 3rd grade Grandparents’ Day Program was October 4th. The students were excited to eat turkey and mashed potatoes with their grandparents for lunch. They then got to show them around the school, play at recess, and visit the Book Fair. Parents, grandparents, and students returned to the lunchroom for the program. The students recited poems, shared stories about their grandparents, and sang songs such as “Edelweiss” and “Grandma’s Feather Bed.” A new addition to the Grandparents’ Day tradition was Mr.

Principal's 200 Club Winners

Students at Barnett Elementary have been working hard this month to earn Brag Notes. When a student earns a brag note their name is added to the Principal’s 200 Club Board. Brag notes can be earned by making good choices, working hard in school, and being a good friend or helper just to name a few things. Once the board is full of student names we have a drawing for books and prizes. Here are our winners for this month. Thanks for making so many good choices Barnett Bulldogs!

Dads and Donuts

Students got to school early today. Why? Because of the Barnett tradition of Dads and Donuts during the week of the Book Fair.  Not only were dads invited, but moms, grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, and younger siblings.  The halls of the school were ringing wtih the sound of laughter and munching starting at 7:30 this morning.  By the look on most faces the donuts were delicious and much appreciated--thank you PTA--and by the crowded main hallway, it seems like more students in the school have books to read now.

Carnival Fun!

The PTA Carnival on Friday, September 21st, was a huge success!  The PTA provided the means for kids to play on blow-up bouncy houses, obstacle courses, and other fun equipment.  Teachers, parent volunteers, and volunteers from the high school also manned booths so that the students at Barnett could use their skill and luck to win prizes.  One of the most popular games was Flush 'Em, a game in which students try to throw a ball at a small lever which then pours a bucketful of cold water onto the waiting person's head.
