Barnett’s 6th-grade incentive for February was a Renaissance Dinner and Dance. Students helped donate bread, soup, veggies and refreshments for an etiquette dinner. Dressed in Medievalattire or formal wear, the 6th graders learned how to talk socially and learned appropriate behavior for dining in a restaurant. Students then learned different dances where they changed partners and other classics like the bunny hop. This was a hit with the sixth grade and taught them proper etiquette for the future.

Sixth-grade students got a little “sock” crazy on Dr. Seuss’ birthday. They wore crazy socks to celebrate “Fox in Socks” and other memorable Seuss books. There were special visitors throughout the day including Cat in the Hat and an adorable fish. What a great day.

Kindy 500

Submitted by sara.stout on Sat, 03/03/2012 - 21:39

On February 24th the kindergarten classes had a great time running the Kindy 500. With their homemade vehicles, the children went on a road trip in our school to learn about our American Symbols. Two of our students, Megan Jacobson and Megan Durrant, led the way in the parade of cars. The children met Abraham Lincoln, the Statue of Liberty, and Betsy Ross. They learned about the American eagle, the White House, Mt. Rushmore and the Liberty Bell. It was a very successful activity,and we look forward to another road trip with our students next year.
