Butler students put their knowledge to the test at the Presidents Competition at Slippery Rock University. This competition requires students to understand the history, politics, and events surrounding the presidents of the United States of America.
The 9-12 competition was on January 8th and the 7th and 8th graders competed on January 9.
At the 9-12 competition, Mason Grenci and Rachael Lutz were undefeated and are now qualified for the state level Tri Bowl competition!
At the 7th & 8th grade competition, Max Channells and David Krainbucher earned undefeated scores, while a team comprised of Max, David, Miles Lavery, Ardan Oniboni, and Alec Teff came in 2nd place.
Congratulations to all!
Dear Butler Area School District Community:
I am pleased to share that PIAA District X has approved Butler Area School District’s football program to be an associate member for the next two (2) years. This means that we will not be independent. I would like to thank District X for this opportunity for our student athletes. We look forward to being a part of the District X football community. I would also like to thank the WPIAL for their support as we rebuild our football program.
Congratulations to our STORM winners Dylan Ammon and Mrs. Santilo!
The Butler Wrestling Team took a day off from practice in December to volunteer to feed the homeless and those in need at Katie's Kitchen at St. Mark's Church.
"It was a great and humbling experience for these young men," said Coach Stoner. "It was an event well worth the day off from practice."

Congratulations to Remy Pardo for choosing a healthy and positive lifestyle. Stand Tall presented Remy with a T-shirt and a $25.00 gift card to the Regal Cinemas. Remy was very excited and would like to thank Stand Tall for donating this gift.
Butler Area School District has a very successful athletic program. Many of our teams make the playoffs every year.
2016-2017 -- 16 varsity teams made the playoffs
2017-2018 -- 18 varsity teams made the playoffs (broke our school record)
2018-2019 -- 15 varsity teams made the playoffs
Over that three year span, we have had 101 athletes go on to play a sport in college.
However, our football program has not thrived. The program has had 7 coaches in 21 years and has an extremely low participation rate. I have spent time looking at data related to the program, including analyzing the game stats, comparing youth football rosters to varsity rosters and reviewing participation rates in multiple sports. I have also assessed the funding of the football program as well as conducted an economic comparison of the other schools in our section. In addition, I have had informal discussions about our football program with many people.
