Who Wants to Be an Opera Star?

Submitted by beth.knudsen on

Utah Opera provided an amazing assembly introducing Barnett Elementary students to the world of Opera by using the framework of a television game show. "Who Wants to Be An Opera Star" is an introduction to opera; the art form that combines drama, visual art, dance, orchestral music, and singing.  We were entertained by a wonderfully talented group of singers and an accomplished pianist.

Barnett 6th Grade Fear Factor to Peer Pressure

Submitted by beth.knudsen on

Have you ever wondered if you have what it takes to face your fears? Well, the 6 th graders at Barnett Elementary do! Recently, students volunteered to be contestants in eight, pulse-racing, hair raising activities. They had worms dropped on their faces, had to catch mustard covered marshmallows in their mouths, and eat pickled pigs feet, just to name a few. Under the supervision of stunt coordinators (their teachers), Mrs. Spencer, Mrs. Peterson, and Mrs. Laudato, students were confronted with a series of challenging tasks.
