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.
Mrs. Reges's fourth grade class at Summit Elementary School recently completed a cooperative family project. Each student made a turkey feather together with their own family to display what they are thankful for. Then the class put their feathers together to make a turkey.
The students also completed a fun fall project where they got to learn about deciduous trees. The students found leaves around the school and at home, and then they used them to create a leaf animal.
Great job, fourth grade!
Mrs. Riederer’s first grade class at Broad Street Elementary School used the design process to create balloon floats. Then the scholars paraded their floats around the school -- just like the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Broad Street Elementary School scholars and staff showed their appreciation for our community during their "Pay-It-Forward" week. The scholars gave thanks for their lunch mentors, backpack volunteers, fire department, police department, VA hospital, and Butler Memorial Hospital throughout the week. Using the Design Process, the scholars created banners, Christmas cards, ornaments and placemats as gifts to show their appreciation.
Great job, BSES scholars! And, thank you to all of the amazing people who work hard to support our community and our school!
McQuistion Elementary School students and staff participated in a Penny War to benefit McQuistion Best Buddies. The winning class was Mr. Bandura's room! As a reward, Mr. Bandura's students got to transform their teacher into a turkey!
After the Penny War, the school held an exciting Best Buddy Event. Students made new friends while playing "pin the feather on the turkey," creating placemats that were given to Sunnyview, and socializing with friends while enjoying Eat n Park cookies.
Eleven recently seniors signed their National Letters of Intent. Congratulations to all of these outstanding student athletes!
Ms. Lindsey Walker had always hoped to take her 9th grade interior design class to Fallingwater.
When Dr. White offered all BASD teachers the chance to submit a “DREAM” proposal and win $500 to turn their dream into a reality, Ms. Walker jumped at the chance. Her proposal was selected and her dream became a reality!
The students at Butler Middle School decorated coffee sleeves for Butler Health System workers through the Be Tuff Stand Up program.
Be Tuff Stand Up is part of Middle School's Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program that engages students in a positive way in order to promote a sense of community within our school and community at large. BMS students created about 700 coffee sleeves that will be handed out through Cummings' Coffee Shop's hospital location.
The officers of the National Junior Honor Society presented Shawn Sledzianowski, the school services coordinator for Highmark Caring Place - Warrendale Office, with a donation of just over $1000.

The donation was made in honor of Children's Grief Awareness Day was November 18, 2021.
The district has received a grant that will be used to purchase needed technology. Specifically, the grant will help provide devices for students who do not have access to their own device at home.
We are gathering information to determine who has access to a device (laptop, chromebook, iPad) and who does not have consistent access to technology.
