Dear Families,

It is hard to believe we have made it to November!!!! What a great start to the year it has been. We would like to thank you for working with the school in regards to your child's health. We appreciate the proactive approach you are taking before sending your child to school.

As you know, we have hired social workers in each of our buildings this year. Jules Frazier is serving Butler and doing a fantastic job. She is now spearheading our monthly social-emotional word of the month. October was RESPECT and November is GIVING THANKS. Miss Frazier is visiting our classrooms, reading stories, and providing activities to reinforce our word/phrase of the month.

Please continue reading this Newsletter for important information and upcoming activities at Butler Elementary.

Meet our social worker, Jules Frazier

My name is Jules Frazier and I am the Social Worker at Butler Elementary! As we are learning that mental health is just as important as physical health, my job at Butler is to be here for the children’s social and emotional needs! I graduated from Mapleton High School in 2017 and received my Bachelors in Psychology and Social Work from Bluffton University in May of 2021. I worked for Children's Services for three months but found that I wanted to have a bigger impact on a child’s life by seeing them every day in a school setting. I enjoy watching Cleveland sports, spending time with friends and family, and traveling (no matter how near or far!) While I am in my first year, I already feel so welcome by the staff and students and I am looking forward to the rest of the school year!

October was RESPECT month
