Weekly Update

Butterfield School

Evolve Academy

As we look ahead to next year and continue our planning for a post-pandemic environment, our goal is to ensure we provide opportunities for all our families.

We know that some of our students and parents may be hesitant to return to in person learning next year. We are also aware that many of our students are currently thriving in an all remote environment. This is what has led us to develop the EVOLVE Academy, an all remote academy we intend on offering next school year. That being said, the first step in developing this program is determining the level of interest in our school community.

Please click on the link below to read more about the Evolve Academy and to complete an initial interest survey, as family applications will be sent based on survey information.

Springtime at BF School

As the weather changes, please help your child dress appropriately. We recommend dressing in layers as the mornings can be chilly and we try to go outside as often as possible throughout the day.

We have more students on campus and more students walking to and from school, so please follow the directions of crossing guards and staff working in the parking lot. This will keep everyone safe and the pick up line moving more smoothly.

Earth Day Clean Up

Big picture

In honor of Earth Day, Butterfield's third graders participated in a neighborhood clean-up. They braved the cold and collected 9 pounds of trash! Our school and the adjacent park are cleaner, safer, and more beautiful thanks to their hard work. The third graders hope that their efforts inspire others to make a positive change in the community too!
