In an effort to maximize in person instruction for our students, we will have traditional snow days this year. This means students will not have school, nor will they have to learn remotely. The days will be made up according to our calendar.
If we have a particularly bad winter with more than a few snow days, it is possible that we will implement a flexible instructional day (FIDS). In that case, we will distribute devices and/or learning materials to students. More details will be shared if we get to the point where we have to implement a flexible instructional day.
Mrs. Riederer’s first grade class at Broad Street Elementary School used the design process to create balloon floats. Then the scholars paraded their floats around the school -- just like the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Broad Street Elementary School scholars and staff showed their appreciation for our community during their "Pay-It-Forward" week. The scholars gave thanks for their lunch mentors, backpack volunteers, fire department, police department, VA hospital, and Butler Memorial Hospital throughout the week. Using the Design Process, the scholars created banners, Christmas cards, ornaments and placemats as gifts to show their appreciation.
Great job, BSES scholars! And, thank you to all of the amazing people who work hard to support our community and our school!
The After School Program is canceled for Tuesday, November 23. It will resume after the Thanksgiving break. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
The district has received a grant that will be used to purchase needed technology. Specifically, the grant will help provide devices for students who do not have access to their own device at home.
We are gathering information to determine who has access to a device (laptop, chromebook, iPad) and who does not have consistent access to technology.
Broad Street Elementary School students and staff honored Veterans and showed their appreciation for all those who have served our country.
Broad Street Elementary School students enjoyed a visit from the Butler County Symphony. The symphony played compositions that answered the question, "What Makes Music American"? The performance was outstanding!
A special thank you to the Butler County Symphony for visiting Broad Street Elementary!
The PA Department of Agriculture awarded Butler Area School District a Farm to School grant in the amount of $15,000 to strengthen childhood nutrition and agricultural education.

Did you know that much of the funding our school district receives from the state and federal level is based on the number of students in our district who are eligible for free/reduced meals?
Prior to the pandemic, 50% of our families were eligible for free/reduced meals. This year, only 42% are on record as being eligible for free/reduced meals.
