Message from Principal Betancourt

Dear Butler Families,As you might be aware, there has been a disturbing and painful trend of increasing violence and hatred towards Asian American and Pacific Islanders in our country.  Not only because I myself identify as a member of this group, but more so because hatred, bias, and bigotry have no place in our community or world, I wanted to reach out to you. My father came from the Philippines when he was 18 and I grew up with visits to my Lolo and Lola's, where she always want...
