As we enter the final nine weeks of the school year, I want to thank you for your flexibility and assistance in helping us to try and operate as normally as possible. We continue to need your help. Butler County’s covid numbers have increased to the substantial range for the last two weeks. My ask of you is if your child feels ill or has symptoms that could be COVID related, please keep him or her home until you consult with a medical professional.

As we plan for the 2021-2022 school year, we want to ensure we are in the position to meet the individual needs of all of our students and families. This includes once again offering a traditional brick and mortar in person instruction learning pathway as well as the BASD Cyber Learning Program, which is fully online.
Mr. Dave Andrews, BASD Instructional Coach for Student Engagement, is passionate about creating unique learning opportunities for our students and making learning fun! As part of the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program, students were rewarded for their positive behavior with a visit from Mr. Andrews and his lambs!
Mrs. Lindsey Walker’s Family & Prenatal class at the Butler Intermediate High School created custom weighted lap bags for students in Mrs. Kelly’s class at McQuistion Elementary School.
These sensory bags will be used by the elementary students to help with stress and anxiety, and to help bring calmness with the texture and weight.
McQuistion student and staff are ready for spring! The students recently started the school's new pollinator garden with help from Mr. Andrews. Students have also been working hard to beautify the courtyard. They love to help wake up the outdoor classroom! Students love to spend time in the garden to see what has sprouted and pick away the dried remnants of last year.
Thank you to all of the students and staff for the work they are doing to keep McQuistion Elementary School beautiful!
