At Butler we strive to provide all students with three basic rights:

Each right rests upon, or is balanced by, a set of responsibilities which are accepted and acted upon by every segment of the school community: students, teachers, and parents.
The right to an excellent elementary education
Excellent elementary education
To come to school ready to learn and to work hard while here.

We believe this can best be achieved in an environment characterized by mutual respect and shared responsibility. Our success will be built on a partnership of teachers who are committed to their profession and families who ensure their children come to school ready to learn.
