Little ones do not want to miss this years first Symphonic Spooktacular! Children are encouraged to dress in costume for this fun family event. Our night begins with a "Haunted Hallway" where the children can trick-or-treat through our decorated hallway. At 7:00 pm, the Butler 9th Grade Orchestra will perform some "spooky" favorites in the lobby followed by the Senior High Orchestra. Little ones are encouraged to sit up close on the floor for this interactive concert experience. Following the performance, we have a small festive craft the kids can take home with them. A fun night of costumes, trick-or treat and music for all - we hope to see you there! Doors open at 6:00 pm. Suggested donation $5. All proceeds go to the Butler Orchestra.

The first grade students at Summit Elementary School are busy with Maker Projects this year! Teachers Cindy Michelini and Julie Peles are integrating the maker movement into ELA class for the first grade students.
This project started with a Big Book titled "Chuck's Truck." The story setting was a farm and the plot was how the farm animals packed into the truck, which (spoiler alert!) eventually broke on the way to town.
Emily Brittain students had a unique opportunity to partner with Senior High School students and learn what it means to be a Golden Tornado!
Senior High School students engaged Emily Brittain students in fun team building activities throughout the day. The activities included a pep assembly and school spirit games as well as a story and a craft.
The Butler Rock Orchestra has been invited to perform at the 2020 PMEA State Conference in April!
To be selected, the group had to submit 3 recordings from the 2019 school year, which were evaluated by a panel of judges. The top groups in the state are selected to showcase their talents at the conference where they will perform in front of music educators from across the state of Pennsylvania. This year, the conference will be held at the Kalahari Resort and Conference Center in the Poconos.
Congratulations to the Butler Rock Orchestra!

Students who earn a Golden Bookmark for demonstrating one of the 4 "Bs"— Be kind and respectful, Be prepared, Be safe and in control, and Be a problem solver — select a popsicle stick with a number of the Principal’s 200 Club board. When we hit a Bingo, a variety of prize opportunities will be awarded.

We have made adjustments to our school calendar as a result of our delayed start.
Monday, November 11th has been designated as an Act 80/School Conference day. Students do not need to report to school on this day. Teachers will be able to use that time for parent-teacher conferences. They have also been given the flexibility to schedule parent-teacher conferences earlier in November.
Wednesday, November 27 has been designated a regular school day for students and teachers. At this point, students and teachers should plan to report to school on that day. However, we are hoping to be able to use that day as a Flexible Instructional Day (FID). We have submitted a FIDs application on behalf of Butler Area School District and will know by early November if our Flexible Instructional Day application has been approved.
Intermediate High School students kicked off the PBIS Program (Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports) with a game show.
