Principals 200 Board

Outside of our office, there is a whiteboard hanging with 200 places on the board. Leaders at Barnett Elementary that get a brag note from a teacher, get to pick a number, and their name is written on the board in that place. Once the board is all filled up, Mrs. Stoddard chooses 3 lucky winners. The first place winner's row also wins! We have filled this board up multiple times this year. It sure is easy to do when we have a school full of great, amazing leaders. Congratulations to our Principals 200 Board winners. We will be starting fresh on Monday.

Bulldog Pride 2019

Submitted by dayna.kirgan on Fri, 02/01/2019 - 16:43

It was the first Bulldog Pride Assembly in the new year. We have had such a great January. It really has just flown by. This month our leaders had come back from a holiday break and got right back into the routine of school. We have had many great accomplishments this month: the school spelling bee, yellow pack's party, and moving closer and closer to our school WIG of moving up reading levels. Our top dogs and leaders of the month this month really shined! Congrats to our alpha dog winners, Mr. Cope and Mrs. Ross! You two are amazing and we are so lucky to have you here at Barnett.
