Food Service Celebration Jun 3, 2020 food service

Since our schools physically closed on March 17, our food service team has been working to provide meals to our students. Did you know that as of this week they prepared over 200,000 meals? This calls for a celebration!

On Wednesday, June 3, the school district recognized and celebrated the hard work of 40 food service employees.

The Butler County Commissioners issued a proclamation at a ceremony. In addition, the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank presented a plaque to Emily Brittain Community Partnership and Demonstration School for their exceptional results in the Southwestern Pennsylvania School Breakfast Challenge. The goal of this challenge was to increase participation in the School Breakfast Program throughout our region. Emily Brittain had a 17% increase in School Breakfast participation in October 2019 compared to October 2018.

Fun Facts

  • Total meals served each day -- more than 2,000
  • Total meals served to date -- just over 200,000
  • Total meals delivered to front doors -- about 185,000
  • Number of food service employees – about 40
  • Number of School Police -- 24 (for meal delivery)
  • Number of miles traveled on the delivery routes each day -- almost 250 square miles

We would like to thank all of our food service employees, our school police officers and the Nutrition Group for making this possible!

Picking Up Student Belongings at Northwest May 28, 2020

Dear Northwest Parents and Families,

As the school year comes to a close, we want to share some information about picking up and dropping off personal belongings and school materials.

A Message from the Superintendent -- May 27, 2020 May 27, 2020

As the 2019-2020 school year comes to a rather unconventional close, I wanted to thank you all once again for your patience and flexibility. 

The last few months have been challenging. The impact on our schools will be lasting in many ways. 

Learning Pathways May 20, 2020 Learning Pathways

The 2019-2020 school year is not yet over, but we are already starting to plan for next year. The COVID-19 school closures have dramatically changed the landscape of public education. As a result, we must reimagine who we are and how we serve students and families to provide the learning they need moving forward in our evolving society.

As we plan, our driving theme is to empower parents and students to make decisions that are the best for their individual situation. Parents and students will be able to select from three learning pathways beginning in the 2020-2021 school year.

Email Issues Are Resolved May 12, 2020

The issues our email host was experiencing with our outgoing messages has been resolved. Thank you for your patience!

 

**

Message from May 12

Our email host is experiencing issues that is preventing some of our emails from going through. As a result some emails sent externally from our faculty and staff members to parents may be getting delayed or may be getting bounced back as undeliverable. We do not believe we are having any issues receiving emails from others. This issue is only with outgoing messages. 

We realize this is incredibly frustrating, especially at a time when we reply so heavily on email. We will continue to work with our email host to resolve the issues as soon as possible. 

Thank you for your patience. 

Teacher Appreciation 2020 May 8, 2020 teacher appreciation

Dear Butler Area School District Faculty,

Two months ago, you were all working hard to deliver high quality, innovative instruction in our classrooms. As I walked through the halls of our schools earlier this year, I was proud of the work I saw.

Then, our Governor closed our schools and we asked you all to figure out a way to deliver instruction remotely so that our students could continue to learn at home. Once again, you rose to the challenge.

The past few weeks have been very difficult. Yet, you continue to show up each and every day to be a consistent source of encouragement and support in the lives of our students.

Pitt Outreach Project at Northwest May 4, 2020 Pitt outreach

Just before our schools physically closed, Mrs. Fair's class at Northwest had the opportunity to participate in a University of Pittsburgh Outreach Project.

Chemical Engineering students along with their professor, Dr. Bayles,  visited and presented information on physical and chemical changes. Second grade students then participated in activities relating to these two types of changes. It was an excellent crossover from the module being taught within their own classroom using the CHANGES module.

Pitt students had the chance to introduce second grade students to technical areas and careers that they might consider in the future!
