Dr. Brian White, Superintendent of the Butler Area School District, presented his recommendation for the future organization of our schools on Monday, June 10, 2019. His recommendation is based on numerous factors, including community feedback that was gathered at the School Organization Community Forums last fall.
At this point, we are once again asking for community feedback. We hope you will take the time to review Dr. White's report and share your feedback by completing a short survey.

Emily Brittain 4th grade students in Mrs. Tonini's class created their own board games after learning about some of the problems amphibians face in the world. Students read several articles in their reading series and were given the task to create a game board about amphibians losing their home for a reason that was stated in the articles.
Students displayed several inventive ideas and had a blast playing their games!
