From the Principal

Dear Families,

It was quite exciting to be a Butler Community member at this weekend’s Spelling Bee, during which I got to host the grades 3 and 4 swarms, and our resource teacher Kate Bender was a superb panelist helping to call out words. We had so many teams of Butler students sharing their spelling skills and good sportspersonship. Not only was our children’s spelling impressive, but they also had some very clever team names and costumes!  Our Vocabulary Day at the end of October was pretty fantastic; check out the photos in the gallery of our creative children and teachers!


Come Learn about Number Sense!

Our district Math Curriculum Specialist, Jessica DeFrances, will be joining our PTA meeting (beginning at 8:45am) on Wednesday, November 13 to help parents learn how and why we help build number sense in the early grades.  Wondering about why subitizing is important?  Want to dig into the essence of quantity!?  Curious about number composition!? Then this presentation is for you!  You'll get some tips for things to do at home to help build your child's number sense.  Can't wait to see you there.

With every good wish,
