Welcome Back Butler Families
Dear Butler Families,
I am excited to share with you that the 2018-2019 school year has started off extremely well. With a focus of school pride and community as one of Butler's goals we started off the school year with all students in the gym as a kick off. To make this event even better, as students entered the gym they were cheered on by their fellow classmates. It was so exiting to see our 6th graders walking into the gym to loud welcoming cheers by all of our 7th and 8th grade students. The morning then transitioned into all 900 students participating in fun team building activities. This kick off jump started one of the best starts of the school year I have been part of.
As mentioned above, school pride and community is one of our goals but communicating with families is always something we continue to make adjustments to meet the needs of all our families. Please join us on Facebook and Twitter for up coming events and visit our website all Butler information. Also, please make sure your email is correct in the Parent Portal of Infinite Campus to received important information throughout the school year.
Thank you for your part of helping us start the school year off in a positive fashion. As a Butler community that includes students, parents, staff and Butler staff we with thrive to Build Everyone Success Together.

Student Council is still accepting new members and we are flexible with other clubs and sports. See an advisor for more information.
