Butler Family Game Night

We had a great time at the Butler Family Game Night on February 19th. Families played games, had snacks and enjoyed some quality time together. We learned that games of all types aren’t simply fun for the kids; they also provide many ways for students to reinforce the skills they need for school, such as counting, spelling, and good sportsmanship. To learn more, please see the article below.
