In November, we had a chance to honor those that are top dogs in their classrooms and students who are showing true leadership. In a school full of leaders it is sure hard to choose! We are so proud of our November Top Dogs and Leaders and look forward to more coming in just a couple of days when we have our December Bulldog Pride Assembly. For the month of November our Alpha Dogs were Amy Davis a second grade teacher and Spencer a UEI technician. They work so hard here at Barnett Elementary and we are so thankful for them and the work they do here in our school.
Mrs. Standish’s 5th grade math class did a math project in which they calculated the costs of a holiday cookie exchange. They had to use their knowledge of addition and subtraction of decimals to complete the project. They celebrated with a holiday cookie exchange and STEM Christmas tree challenge.
A good teacher has been defined as an individual who can understand those who are not good at explaining, and explain to those who are not very good at understanding. Dwight D. Eisenhower
Our teachers came together in teams to make gingerbread displays. The rules were simple, your entry could not already be put together and you had one hour to do it all. The creations were displayed in the school and then given away to students to take home and decorate their homes with. It was a new tradition of working togehter, synergizing, and having fun. ENJOY THE PICTURES!
The Barnett Student Lighthouse Team hosted a food drive to benefit members of the Payson community. Students planned the food drive, collected, counted, and organized the food. They were thrilled to raise over 1200 cans of food to help out members of the community. Way to synergize!
Barnett Elementary would like to thank America First Credit Union-Payson Branch, for purchasing 100 pairs of shoes for students at Barnett. It was a great day when the recipients of the shoes all gathered together and opened their presents at the same time to discover a brand new pair of awesome shoes! Thank you again to America First Credit Union for taking care of our students!
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 living the 7 Habits, working hard in school, and being a good example of a leader 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 the month of December. Thanks for making so many good choices Barnett Bulldogs!
We want to congratulate Mrs. Spencer, a 6th grade teacher, for receiving the Nebo School District PEAK Award last night from the Nebo School Board. Mrs. Spencer is an outstanding teacher and truly shows Positive Energy and Kindness to our students, faculty, and parents. Way to go Mrs. Spencer, we are lucky to have you at Barnett!
Leaders at Barnett Elementary had the opportunity to attend a BYU Women's basketball game in November. Students that exhibited great behavior were able to go to the game. On the morning of the 21st, students loaded up in buses and headed for the Marriott Center. There students were given a free pom pom to use to cheer for BYU. BYU was up against UVU- in a cross town game. BYU ened up winning the game! Barnett students laughed, cheered, and danced for a chance to be on the big screen. It was a great day awarding the leaders who worked so hard to get there. Keep working hard Bulldogs!
