On September 14, Barnett had some special helpers. On this day, the first and second graders had volunteers from United Way come and teach them for the first half of the day. Mrs. Davis said, “Shawn and Jason from US Synthetic came for Day of Caring. Students had an awesome time! They were so impressed with us, they wanted a selfie!” Mrs. Fuhriman’s class also had a great time with their volunteers! Thank you to United Way and the volunteers! You definitely impacted all of us here at Barnett with your Day of Caring!

We had an exceptional First Grade Field trip last week.  Gentry from the Forest Service came and discussed the importance of keeping nature clean and not starting fires. She brought along her friend Smokey the Bear and each class got their picture taken with him. We also learned the five rules from Smokey. The rules we learned from Smokey the Bear are as follows: Only you can prevent wild fires.Always be careful with your fire.Never play with matches or fires.Always watch your campfire.Make sure your campfire is completely out. 

We did five activities as well: 1) learned of plants in Utah and got a marshmallow target game, 2) learned the legend of how the flute came to be and got to decorate their own Indian flute, 3) got to decorate a t-shirt with a boot print to talk about activities to do in nature, 4) cracked a code to make a book about different animal paw prints, and 5) made a necklace from tree branches and beads.

Even though it rained and we couldn't go hike the Grotto, we still had a great time.

We had a blast last night jamming to music by local star Ashley Garbe Smith and her amazing band!  Families came and enjoyed hotdogs, popcorn and mingling with each other.  Mr. Gull started the night out by sharing our new Positive Behavior Intervention Plan with parents.  He explained what SOAR stands for, Serve and Support, Own Your Actions and Words, and Respect.   Mrs. Darrington then explained what Title One means and how we use our Title One allocation funds.  The PTA shared with us the benefits of PTA and encouraged parents to get involved with the different PTA activities.  The weather was beautiful, the support was amazing and the night was one to be remembered.

"Taylor Elementary had a GAINS District Dance Specialist visit  last week.  GAINS stands for Growing Arts In Nebo Schools.  Specialists visit elementary schools throughout the District and work with teachers and students on using different kinds of arts integration. Arts Integration employs the arts as a teaching tool to enhance learning of the core curriculum.  Taylor will be working with Dance Integration this school year.   5th grade students danced about the ORDER OF OPERATIONS with a little help from our hula hoops.  By adding movement to the meaning of the different operations, students will better remember this important sequence. 6th grade students created dancing EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPHICS to share a message about Ancient Egypt.  
 3rd-4th grade will be visiting with the Dance Specialist in a couple of weeks as well.  Wait until then to hear more!

Fifth Grade Students Enjoy Learning About Science

Fifth grade students in Miss Sabrina Huyett's class recently got to do a science experiment with Miss Huyett's dad, Mr. Steve Huyett. He is a chemist and he taught the students the scientific method of using the "methylene blue" experiment. 

 The blue bottle experiment as it is called, is a chemical reaction. An aqueous solution containing glucose, sodium hydroxide, methylene blue and some air is shaken in a closed bottle; it turns from colorless to blue and then decolorizes again after a while. With further shaking, the cycle can be repeated many times. The students really enjoyed learning about science!
