Dear Families,


I was asked this week to write a short summary for our website about my philosophy for Butte Central Elementary and Junior High as it is getting updated. I decided to share it with you as this week’s Blarney reflection. I hope that you all enjoy a wonderful weekend! Know that you and our entire community continue to be in my prayers.


As a Catholic educator for 13 years, and the recipient of a Catholic education for 16 years, I believe in “The More” a Catholic education offers. A term often used is Magis, in Latin meaning “The More.” We at Butte Central, go beyond the normal classroom experience, to develop the whole student, in a welcoming and caring environment. We believe that academic excellence leads to the development of life-long learning, and the understanding that intellect opens the mind. Our teachers offer students opportunities to be open to growth, instilling in them that we are all on our own Spiritual journey. And that Faith, must lead to action. But most importantly, we provide a community that promotes love. In Saint Paul’s words to the Corinthians, “love never fails.” It is with that in mind that our Butte Central community is committed to all children who deserve an education in a loving environment. Our teachers understand, and are committed to the responsibility they have for the academic, social, and emotional development of their students. Their dedication goes beyond the normal expectations of a teacher. I am humbled and proud to serve as Principal alongside such a caring community at Butte Central Catholic Elementary and Junior High.


God Bless,


Paul
