Happy Holidays to our Families 2023
Family involvement is critical to the success of our children. The one thing I have learned in my seven years working in the Valley is that our families are exceptional.
I would like to thank our PTO leadership for providing Butler Elementary with experiences and resources to be successful. First, we appreciate the time and effort it took for our volunteers to set up our Scholastic Book Fair and man it for a week. We sold over $12,000 in books and earned close to $5,500 in Scholastic Dollars to purchase new titles for our school library and classrooms. The coin drive spear headed by the PTO also provided enough money to make sure each child attending Butler Elementary was able to receive a book. Our Parents Club also worked tirelessly planning A Night in Wonderland, a special evening for our young ladies and special male figure in their life. This experience, held at the Butler Event Center, will hold a special place in our children's hearts and we appreciate the commitment it takes to pull off such an event. I would also like to thank our PTO for providing quarterly prizes for our PBIS rewards program. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you do.
Our Parents Club is always looking for volunteers to help with their mission of providing support to our students and staff. Please email ButlerPTO@yahoo.com to get involved!

Butler Elementary will be receiving a Communication Board in 2024!
Thanks to a generous donation from American Legion Post 535 in Bellville, Butler Elementary will be receiving a Communication Board for our Playground. The board features a total of 78 words, complete with letters and numbers, tailored to facilitate communication during recess and outdoor activities. The outdoor board will augment a system created by the school's preschool team and intervention specialists who develop visual schedules and communication cards for non-verbal students to use during their educational activities and lessons. Incorporating the playground communication board will make the children's outdoor play more inclusive. The visual messaging on the board allows for a non-verbal student or a teacher to point to their communication need that the non-verbal student and teacher will understand thereby promoting clear communication.
