During the 2021-2022 school year, the Butler Area School District initiated the Fishing is Fun in Butler program in several of the elementary buildings. This program was started as an extension of the Fly Tying club that has been in existence for several years at the Butler Intermediate High School, and complimented the Fisheries Science program components at both the Butler Middle School and Butler Senior High Schools.
After reading the story “Bread Comes to Life”, kindergarten students at CAPS (Summit) discussed the ingredients that are needed to make bread and the process behind the loaves we buy at the store. They focused on the ingredient wheat; the process of growing and harvesting wheat to make flour. Students then had the opportunity to make their own “bread in a bag”, where they got to experience mixing the ingredients, kneading the dough, forming the loaf of bread, and allowing it to rise. Students then took their bread home to bake and enjoy!

Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s),
Later this month, all school districts throughout Pennsylvania will participate in the Pennsylvania System of School Assessments (PSSA).
Ms. Heilman-Houser's second grade class at Summit has been feeding and observing birds this school year.
They recently started a unit on measurement in math. Students were able to use their measuring skills to measure yarn and alpaca fiber and record their measurements in inches. Then they placed the fiber and yarn into whisks to make nesting whisks for the birds to help them build their nests. They hung their whisks in the trees around the school so students could observe birds using them.

March is Music In Our Schools Month and as part of our month-long celebration of music, we are excited to announce that we are planning to relaunch our elementary music education program!
We have already had a significant number of students express an interest in learning to play an instrument. We have also had many students who are interested, but are unable to provide their own instrument.
When Summit Township elementary students look for inspiration, they can look no further than their own art teacher, Mr. Jake Savisky. Mr. Savisky's abstract expressionism masterpieces are featured at Curio--an art space in Zelienople owned by retired BASD art teacher Lauren Shorr and her husband, Jason.
The BASD is in need of volunteers for the Fishing is Fun in Butler after school club program. This spring, this club program is taking place at 3 school buildings - Broad Street Elementary, Emily Brittain Elementary, and Summit Elementary.
Butler Area School District received a $50,000 grant through the Pennsylvania Farm Bill's Urban Agriculture Infrastructure Grant Program. This funding will be used to support our food market, which will be located at Broad Street Elementary School.
"These grant funds directly address food system gaps, encourage community collaboration, and create opportunities for people to become social entrepreneurs," said PA Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding. "And, most importantly, these funds address food system injustices by increasing agricultural awareness and improving local food access."
