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.
The right to attend a school where all children are respected
The right to attend a school
To respect both the adults and students with whom they work and play. Basic civility.
The right to attend a clean and safe school
Attend Our School Safely
To responsibly follow the rules which ensure everyone's safety, including taking care of the school building and the materials which are provided for learning.
 
 
 

Statement of Purpose:

Rights and Responsibilities
 
 

The Daniel Butler School is dedicated to providing a school community where students will acquire the foundational skills, knowledge, and behaviors needed for life-long learning. 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.
