Owl Fun at Barnett’s Summer Library

Submitted by kali.brown on Tue, 06/29/2021 - 17:01

Our students and family members had a lot of fun at last week's summer library learning all about what owls.  Miss Patti had a special activity planned afterwards where students were able to decorate their very own owl cupcake to go along with the story and song ... The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark, The Owl Song!  Thank you to all who were able to come and join in the fun… and a very special "shout out" to Miss Patti for organizing this awesome learning activity!

Say Hello to Miss Nash

Get to know Miss Amy Nash!

I’ve taught 1st grade for five years, with one year in 2nd before that. (All six years at Barnett!)

I grew up in Las Vegas with 2 sisters- I’m the middle child! We all live in different places but stay really close.

I love READING, traveling, cooking, crafting/creativity, and learning all kind of random things! (Like Morse Code, or how finish a Rubik’s cube, or ASL, or whatever catches my attention for a week or two!)
