News and Highlights from Butler Elementary School
We had a wonderful first week at Butler. It was nice to see so many students (and teachers!) excited about being back. Our teachers participated in three days of professional development last week on topics like diversity and culturally proficient teaching, the new progress reporting system, and curriculum updates in reading and writing. They were also very busy in the weeks leading up to the start of school decorating and setting up their classrooms, planning their units and lessons, and talking to previous years’ teachers about the strengths and areas for growth for each of the students in their classrooms. Below are some upcoming dates, reminders, and events which may be of interest to some of you. Thank you for all of your support of Butler Elementary, our teachers, and our students. I’m looking forward to another fun, engaging, and productive school year.

The Importance of Girls' Education
Did you know that an estimated 31 million girls of primary school age and 34 million girls of lower secondary school age were not enrolled in school in 2011? (UNICEF) Unfortunately, girls around the world are being denied the right to an education. Yet, research shows that educating girls not only improves their outcomes but also the outcomes of their children and community. Come join us and find out what can be done to help make a difference.
Thanks to a generous grant from Central Bucks Cares, Butler Elementary and Mill Creek Elementary are partnering with Global Hope Alliance to bring you this inspiring documentary. You will see the stories of nine girls from around the world all struggling for their rights to an education.
