Mr. Martinez, Northwest Principal, had a morning meeting with each grade level this week. Morning meetings include a greeting, a challenge, a share and a message.
We have made adjustments to our school calendar as a result of our delayed start.
Monday, November 11th has been designated as an Act 80/School Conference day. Students do not need to report to school on this day. Teachers will be able to use that time for parent-teacher conferences. They have also been given the flexibility to schedule parent-teacher conferences earlier in November.
Wednesday, November 27 has been designated a regular school day for students and teachers. At this point, students and teachers should plan to report to school on that day. However, we are hoping to be able to use that day as a Flexible Instructional Day (FID). We have submitted a FIDs application on behalf of Butler Area School District and will know by early November if our Flexible Instructional Day application has been approved.
How to Pick up and Drop off your Student
It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed principal of Northwest Elementary. Next year will be my tenth year with the Butler Area School District. My experiences include being the assistant principal at Center Township Elementary, and teaching at both the Butler Junior High School and McQuistion Elementary. Before coming to Butler, I taught in the Gallup-McKinley County School District in New Mexico for five years.
