Join us today for Butler’s Book Club!  It’s a great spot to gear up for your 40 Book Challenge and read with friends.  Meet us today at lunch in room 202 with Ms. Flynn.

This is a message is a reminder from the Butler Student Government:  We have decided to start a fundraiser to help the kids at Chancellor Elementary in Houston. By donating, you are giving these kids the chance to go back to school and start rebuilding their lives. Let’s show them how much Butler cares! Together we can make a difference.

Our fundraiser will be taking place this week only. There are collection bins in the main office.

Students interested in Science Olympiad must fill out the Science Olympiad Preference, availab Survey by Wednesday September 20th in order to participate this year.

Both the boys and girls cross country teams ran against Cass on Thursday night.  In the boys race Ethan Chow took first place overall followed by Shiven Shah in second.  The following individuals ran their personal best times for this season:  Aasha Atluri, Rebecca Guan, Emily Loera, Areeba Shams, Sami Baridi, Blake Edmonds, Mateo Lopez, Josh Bailes, JP Gianatasio, and Daniel Mazjoub.  Great job everyone and good luck tomorrow against Timothy Christian.

Backpack & bag policy reminder for all students - Remember the rationale for leaving all backpacks & bags in lockers include the health of your back & shoulders, safety of all by reducing tripping hazards, and developing stronger time management and organization skills. If students are struggling encourage them to see a staff member to help with problem solving. If you are struggling with making it to class on time or trying to determine what to take to class, we encourage you to see a staff member to help with problem solving.

There is a science olympiad meeting today during lunch.  Students interested in Science Olympiad must fill out the Science Olympiad Preference Survey by Wednesday September 20th in order to participate this year.

Good luck to our boys and girls cross country teams as they take on Timothy Christian after school.  The teams will be running at Eldridge Park in Elmhurst with the girls running first.  

Please consider donating to help the students in Houston.  Let’s show them how much Butler cares! Our fundraiser will be taking place this week only. There are collection bins in the main office.
