Third grade enjoyed a day planting their grasses by the bay. As a culminating activity for a yea-long partnership with Grasses in Classes, all third grade students went to Cessna Landing to plant grass to protect the ground from erosion. It was a great experience! Thank you for this wonderful program!

Teacher and Staff Appreciation week is May 1-5, 2017.   Kindergartners in Mrs. Varner's class at Butler Elementary School recognized the school's front office staff  with a huge banner they created for Office Staff Appreciation Day. "Without You This Place Would be A Zoo!" 

Attention Mrs. Barnhill, Mrs. Branson, Ms. Keenan, and Ms. Lindaas's classes! The field trip to Rocking B-A-B Ranch has been postponed to Friday. We felt that was in the best interest of the children's safety since there is a high chance of rain all morning, as well as a chance of storms. If you are unable to attend this Friday and have already paid, please let your teacher know. Refunds will be given to those parents.

Literacy Night

April 17, 2017

Family Reading Night was at VRB this past Thursday night. We had several guest readers at our school, as well as several activities to give away lots of books to families!

Kindergarten Registration will happen at VRB from 4/17 to 4/28. The times that you can come by to complete the paperwork is from 8:00 to 2:30. You will need the following documents to have a complete registration packet:

1) Registration form (even if your child is moving up from Pre-K at VRB)

2) Birth Certificate

3) Florida Immunizations

4) Florida school physical

5) Proof of residency (Please see the Controlled Open Enrollment page to see our zone. It runs from the west side of 393 to the Okaloosa county line. We are currently at capacity, which means we will not be able to accept any students outside the zone, unless they have a sibling that will be attending VRB next year.)

6) Parent id

7) Social Security Card (not a requirement, but if you can bring it we would appreciate it.)

If your child received special education services at another school (speech, OT, PT,etc.) please bring a copy of the IEP with you. This makes it much easier for us to place the students correctly. 

On Friday, March 31, Mrs. Michie's class was able to play a 30-minute kickball game for reaching 250 Butler Bucks. We had Mrs. Binkowski, Mrs. Douglass, Mrs. Kim, Mr. Drake, and Mr. Catalano playing with the class. Congratulations on earning your 250 Butler Bucks! Keep up the hard work.
You are welcome to check your child out but due to the storms' arrival time, we will be holding all students until regular dismissal time. 
Congratulations to Mrs. Jones class that was able to silly string Mrs. Binkowski for raising the second most money for the coupon book sales! The top class was Ms. Yra's, and they were able to silly string Mrs. Smith. Mr. Drake received his silly string from Mrs. McDowell's class for being third in the sales. Congratulations to everybody!
