May 2021

Wow!! It is hard to believe all of the many COVID related obstacles we have faced since March 2020, yet miraculously we are now approaching the finish line for Butterfly School 2021. We made it!! The last 14 months have been one for the record books for sure! Many words have been used to describe this pandemic; Unparalleled, Unique, Extraordinary, Unprecedented, Unusual; all are true AND it has been anything but ordinary! Would Butterfly School be able to remain open? Could we reopen? We boldly decided to open and because of the many sacrifices made by our teachers-, staff and parents, we did it!- barely, but we did it!

Program Directors were having to decipher mandates, protocols, information, misinformation, rules, proclamations and in the mist of all that, trying to do what was best for the

learners. Our Butterfly School teachers came through with flying colors– a sincere thank you to all the parents who showed their special love last week during teacher appreciation. We absolutely have some of the best teachers you’ll find anywhere!

A great big thank you to all the RBS parents who have graciously adhered to our new COVID related policies this year. Everything we put in place was for the safety of your child although sometimes at your inconvenience. For instance, Wearing a mask, Bringing a pen, Signing off on daily screening questions and oh by the way, You can’t go in the building, but all of you stayed the course and it has been greatly appreciated.

Through all this time, it has been comforting to know that we were not alone. God goes before us and No matter what, God is in control, and nothing we face, takes Him by surprise.

So have an AMAZING SUMMER and we look forward to seeing you in September!!

AND OF COURSE, a TEXAS sized thank you to our Safety Team! These fabulous volunteers makes sure our traffic flow is safe for our families as they arrive in the morning and leave in the afternoon.

Next time you see one of them, be sure to tell them thank you!


Memory Verse: “Always do good”

Galatians 6:10

Blessings, Butterfly Families. I can’t believe it is May already! These next few weeks we will be hearing about heaven and how beautiful and fun it will be to see Jesus again. We will see how we can grow the “fruits of the spirit” of goodness and love like a tree can grow an apple. Being kind and loving one another is God's plan and as we leave Butterfly School for the summer we want to remember our May Bible verse, “Always do good.” I loved teaching your children this year about God's love for us! I hope to see you again next year!!


Ms. Chris


Happy May! We made it to the last month of school!! I can't believe it. What a wonderful yet challenging year it has been. For the month of May we will be singing our favorite songs and just enjoying singing together. All of the children's personalities have risen and just brought me much joy! Their teaches will be sending out a video of their classes singing one of their favorite songs so that you can see and hear their wonderful voices I have been blessed with hearing this year. I hope that all of you have a wonderful summer! Sing and make music in your hearts!!

Thank you!

Have a blessed day!


I hope your little artist enjoyed art class this year. I loved getting to see their talent and passion for art grow. We had a wonderful time learning about Pablo Picasso and this month we will conclude with a new Artist Claude Monet. Have a great summer and look forward to seeing you next year!
