Teacher Spotlight: Ms. Sheets

Submitted by dayna.kirgan on Tue, 01/29/2019 - 14:44

Say hello to Ms. Sheets! Ms. Sheets teaches the 4th grade. She has been teaching now for 3 years. Ms. Sheets wanted to become a teacher so that she could watch students grow and progress. Her favorite thing about teaching at Barnett Elementary is the feeling of family. She feels like she belongs and that everyone genuinely cares about her. If she wasn't a teacher she would probably be a physical therapist. She likes to read books in her spare time. Her favorite book is Emeralds and Espionage. We are so lucky to have Ms. Sheets at our school! She is truly amazing.

Barnett Bulldogs received a great lesson on Internet safety. The presenter, Cole, spoke to students about many important things reguarding technology and the internet. He spoke on keeping personal information private. Never share your information with someone you don’t know. He also spoke about the truths of what you post online, stays online.  Another important point Barnett student’s learned was that we need to make the Internet a happier place. Cyberbullying happens quite frequently, but we can spark a change in this and be good citizens online.

Everyone likes a good science fair, but when you are at Barnett Elementary, you will get the BEST science fair! This is such a great opportunity for students to show themselves as scientists and represent themselves in that way. We had many great experiments, and quite a few participants. It is so fun to see kids dive deeper in their learning and take the initiative to do science at home. We would like to recognize our science fair winners.

Setting Goals

Submitted by dayna.kirgan on Fri, 01/04/2019 - 16:28

January is the month for setting goals. But how many times do we actually keep them? Here at Barnett we set our goals in August and work on them the entire school year. I thought it would be great if I taught you how we make and keep our goals a focus all year long. We call our goals WIGs. WIG stands for Wildly Important Goal. One of our WIGs this year is that Barnett Students will make a years growth in reading. Staying focused on our goals is important. Sometimes it is easy to lose focus in the whirlwind of life. Tracking your goal will help it stay fresh in your mind.
