Magic Gives Back! Jan 9, 2022 Magic Gives Back

Dear Center Township Families,

We have exciting news to share. We have recently booked a fundraising event scheduled for April 30th with Magic Gives Back, an organization founded by world-famous magician and record-holding card thrower Rick Smith Jr. Along with his team of entertainers, Rick will be hosting an event at the Butler Intermediate High School during which he will put on a Las Vegas-style performance for students, their families, and other members of the school’s community. Rick, who has performed on programs such as The Tonight Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Dude Perfect on YouTube and America’s Got Talent, is no stranger to stage performance. We are looking forward to this opportunity to see his famous illusions and stunts while also raising money for the school in the process.

A Message from the Superintendent -- Jan. 7, 2022 Jan 7, 2022 A Message from the Superintendent

With covid cases on the rise in Butler County, I’d like to take a minute to remind you to please keep your child home from school if he or she is sick. I know it can be a hardship for families and also difficult for students who want to be in school, but if your child is experiencing covid symptoms – or any other illness – please refrain from sending them to school.

A Message from the Superintendent -- Jan. 2, 2022 Jan 2, 2022 A Message from the Superintendent

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break. As I reflect on last school year and this fall, I can’t express how thankful and grateful I am that our students are back in school. Not merely for being allowed back in school, but also for the extraordinary work of students, teachers, parents and a large cast of other employees and community members who have made it possible to return and stay open.

BASD Technology Survey for Grades K-6 Dec 13, 2021 K-6 Technology Survey

Dear BASD Families of Students in Grades K-6:

A Message from the Superintendent -- Dec. 12, 2021 Dec 12, 2021 A Message from the Superintendent

Dear BASD Families, 

The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania ruled that the Pennsylvania Acting Secretary of Health’s masking mandate for schools is void and unenforceable.  

Therefore, the district will revert back to its school board approved Health and Safety Plan. That plan stipulates that wearing a mask is recommended, but not required for students in school.  

Cookies with Santa at Center Township Dec 6, 2021 Cookies with Santa

The Center Township PTO hosted a fun, activities-filled evening at the school.

The families were treated to cookies and hot chocolate with all the fixings while playing Christmas themed games and creating ornaments. Students created gingerbread people to hang in our Center Court to decorate the school.

BASD Winter Weather Plan Dec 1, 2021 winter weather plan

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.

CT Kindergarten Character Balloons Nov 8, 2021 balloon parade

Center Township Elementary kindergarten students in Mrs. Zalenchak’s class read Balloons Over Broadway by Melissa Sweet. The book tells the story of Tony Sarg whose artistic genius and hard work led to the creation of the character balloons that are the trademark of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The students created their own character balloons styled after the ones they read about in the book and provided a parade throughout the school today for everyone to enjoy.
