Butler Elementary is excited to host an afterschool STEM Club this year!  For their first activity, participants were involved in a cup stacking challenge.  The club meets once a week and is a school improvement initiative being to supplement the Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics opportunities provided for our children.  There will be two sessions, one for the first semester, and another for the second semester, for students in grades 2-4 who completed a signed interest application.  We are excited about this awesome opportunity for our children!

Mrs. Rieger's class is having fun "Thinking Like a Scientist". They have been tracking the growth of sunflowers based on variable like, plant food, water, and direct vs indirect light. They have also been charting the growth and variables. They love their plants.
