Barth Elementary

Barth Bears Visit RMS

Barth 5th grade students had the opportunity to visit the middle school this spring in an effort to get to know the building they will be joining next school year. Students got the chance to meet their future teachers, learn about different activities and programs the middle school offers, and were able to show off their smarts by already raising their hands to answer questions. Good luck to these students as they start a new adventure in a new school this year. Although, after how well they did at the visit, we’re not sure they’ll need it.

Restaurant Chain Honors 2 Teachers

At the end of the year, Barth Elementary staff took an opportunity to teach students on how to stay focused on their goals. Students were asked to write a success or achievement they had this past year on a sticky note and put it on the new Goal Getters wall so they could see their progress from this success to the next one. The Goal Setters assembly also saw teachers Katy Gold and Chelsea Long honored by Schostak Restaurant for their commitment to their students. These awards helped show students that their teachers are here to help them reach their goals.

Fifth Graders Go to Science Camp

Barth’s 5th grade students had great fun at Science Camp at Ortonville, MI’s Tamarack Camps. The three-day trip was full of STEM activities and crafts. One of the more challenging activities was to design and build rafts that would carry four students from the shore to the dock. Students also got the chance to analyze pond organisms under a microscope, understand the sounds of nature, and observe constellations on a moonlit night hike.

The Art of Story Telling

On February 23rd, 2018 Elizabeth James a third generation African American storyteller from the University of Michigan visited Barth Elementary to help celebrate African-American History Month. The Barth Elementary African-American committee invited the multi-talented storyteller to come out and share her breathtaking African-American folktales with the students. Mrs. Lloyd a teacher at Barth Elementary said,

“We were very elated to have her share such rich African-American stories from around the world with our students, Mrs. James did a phenomenal job.”
