Barnett Student Lighthouse Team was invited to bring four student lighthouse team members to the Utah State Capital on February 16th, 2017 to have breakfast with state representatives and state senators. Students had the opportunity to discuss leadership and why it is important that it is taught in schools with the leaders in our government. After breakfast, students toured the Capital Building and even got the chance to sit in Govenor Herbert's office. They also were recognized on the floor of the senate by name by Senator Henderson, senator for the Payson area.
Barnett held its annual Dr. Seuss Family Night on Monday, February 13th. Families enjoyed dinner before attending different literacy activities held throughout the building. From making bookmarks to learning better questioning strategies for reading comprehension, teachers and the PTA worked together to give families a fun night of learning. Every student who attended also received a free book!

We learned about the Trail of Tears/Indian Removal Act on Monday. Students learned about the different paradigms surrounding this situation. We then acted out different parts of that story using tableaus. Students then wrote a letter to President Jackson expressing their opinion on the Indian Removal Act.
5th Grade enjoyed having our district visual art specialist, Mr. Woods, come into our classes last week and teach us how to paint using watercolors. We focused on making stormy skies and the damages it can do to the Earth's surface.
We have been learning all about graphs in first grade! Today we were visited by a real statistician! He played 3 songs for us on the ukulele. We all voted on our favorite songs and graphed the results. Then we analyzed our graph! We are on our way to be graphing experts!
