It's Summer Time!

Job Openings for the 2019-20 School Year

We have at least three openings for classroom aides next year. This includes opportunities to work with students in reading and math.  We are also hiring a volunteer coordinator to help staff a reading tutoring program with 20 regular volunteers. Please contact the office if you are interested. These are great jobs that allow parents to work when their kids are in school and be home when they are home. Jobs will run from 17-20 hours each week. Wages start at just under $11.00 per hour.

 

 

That’s a Wrap!

It’s hard to believe that the 2018-19 school year has come to a close. It has been a pleasure working with you all and your amazing children. I am proud of each one of these children and the dedication of our entire faculty to give them a high-quality school experience in a safe and inviting environment. Thank you, parents, for all of your support.

 

Summer is a great time of renewal for teachers and principals. We are all in need of a healthy break. This job requires so much mental, physical and emotional energy. I’m sure every teacher is ready for some rest and relaxation. Yet, I have no doubt that they will be thinking and planning for next year throughout the next three months. As for me, I’ll be around for the better part of the summer. It is just me, Mr. Ray (our head custodian) and his summer cleaning crew. While I enjoy the peace and quiet to work without interruption, it’s not long before I miss the little voices and the big energy of our students. 

 

My staff and I would like to wish you all a wonderful summer together as families. I hope you make many happy memories. Keep in mind that nothing is more important in your children’s minds than the quality time you spend together. As I have said on more than one occasion, you never know when it will be the last time your son wants to bake cookies with you or the last time your daughter wants to hold your hand while you are walking through the mall. They will do it and then never do it again. Remember that. I will remember that every child in this school is someone’s whole world, your whole world. My goal is to    always work hard enough to honor that sentiment. Have a great summer!

Annual Mathathon Fundraiser

We are excited to announce our annual Math-A-Thon Fundraiser.  Not only will students be actively engaged in academic work to increase math skills and to prepare for end-of-year testing, but we will also be working as a community to support our school. 

The money earned from this fundraiser will be used to purchase additional technology resources for classrooms, as well as help fund field trips.

A kick-off event for students will be held on Monday, April 8th.  Your student will been given instructions and pledge envelopes that day.  They are encouraged to gather pledges from family and friends based on the amount of math problems they get correct on the Math-A-Thon test.  The pledges can be of any amount, from $.01 to $100! The actual Math-A-Thon will be held from April 15th-19th.

The students in grades K-5 will complete 100 math problems appropriate for their grade level during the week. Every child will have the opportunity to correct any mistakes before turning in the assignments, allowing all students to achieve 100%.  Students will collect their pledges and return them to school no later than April 26th.

To add incentive to the fundraiser, students will receive prizes for participation.  All students who complete the 100 math problems will receive a prize for participating.  Additional prizes will be awarded for collecting pledges at the $10.00, $30.00, $50.00, and $75.00 levels.  A field trip to Classic Fun Center will be the grand prize. This will be awarded to the 50 students who collect the most in pledge money.

We need volunteers in every class to help correct student work. I will provide teachers with a Sign-Up Genius link to send out to the families in their class.  Watch for this in over the next couple of weeks and please sign up to lend a hand.  As usual, all volunteers must complete volunteer registration on the Canyons School District webpage.

New First Grade Teacher
We have hired a new 1st Grade teacher for the English classroom in our Dual Immersion program. Her name is Shannon Brown. Although she is teaching the English classroom, Ms. Brown speaks fluent French and will graduate with an endorsement to teach the target language in a French Dual Immersion classroom. We are intrigued about the potential benefits and collaboration opportunities having two French speakers in our 1st grade next year. Rest assured, her focus is teaching English Language Arts. The benefits will come in her ability to connect content area vocabulary. The bottom line is that she is a high-quality teacher that we are excited to have join our team at Butler.
