You read that right, students took over Mrs. Stoddard's job! These leaders were Principal for a Day. Thanks to the PTA Teacher Coupons that these leaders purchased at the Book Fair. These leaders wanted their shot at being principal and loved it. They did a great job and got to see how fun Mrs. Stoddard's job is.

Kindy 500

Our Kindergartners went for a trip around the country in their super speedy Kindy 500 cars. Their trip started off with a Kindy 500 parade for the school showing off their cool cars. Then they drove their Kindy cars to different stops and learned all about our National Symbols. They visited the Statue of Liberty, the White House, and learned all about the Bald Eagle to name a few spots. Our Kindergartners had a great trip!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! We at Barnett Elementary celebrated the favorite childhood author's birthday on March 2.

Barnett is a Leader in Me school where we learn about habits and try to pracitce them as much as we can. We had some students who were demonstrating Habit number 6, Synergizing. Mrs. Taylor's 4th grade students taught Mrs. Fuhriman's 2nd grade students about the rock cycle! They used chocolate chips and as you can see in the pictures, it was a really good time!
