We continue to have wonderful learning taking place daily! You play a big role in this! We thank you for your continued support and invite you to come anytime to visit your child’s classroom. A big thank you to those of you who came out last week for our Principal Coffee and Character Education Night! What a great turn-out we had!
Can you believe that October 10th marks the end of the first quarter of school? There are still many opportunities to partner together with Butcher-Greene this year to benefit your child’s learning experiences! Please be sure to mark your calendars for the events scheduled in the October Newsletter calendar and plan to attend.
First, we invite you to join us for one of the most important events of the year - Parent/Teacher conferencing. This will be taking place the evenings of October 21st from 4:30-7:30p.m. and October 23rd from 1:30-7:30p.m. If you haven’t already signed up for a conference time, you should be receiving information from your child’s teacher regarding this within the next week or two. Also, within the October newsletter you will find an article entitled, “Parent-Teacher Conferences” which provides helpful tips for successful conferencing. We really look forward to this time in which we can partner together with you! Then, at the end of the month, we will be holding our first quarter Awards Assembly on the 29th of October at 2:00p.m. for our third through fifth graders and then another at 3:00p.m. for our Kindergarten through second graders. Students who have earned Honor Roll, Principal’s Honor Roll, Perfect Attendance and VIP’s will be recognized. Please join us as we celebrate student success!
Did you know that your BG School Neighborhood Council has been at work to set up free English classes for our community? This class will begin on Monday evening, October 8 at BG. This is in direct response to the answers we received to a survey we sent each family last winter! An informational flyer was sent home a couple of weeks ago with sign-up information. If you need further information regarding this class, please contact the school office at 316-5400 or Danisha Clarkson at 316-5379. Below you will find this last paragraph in Spanish.

Butcher-Greene is committed to challenging our students daily to stretch and grow. We will continue to focus on developing students’ abilities in problem-solving, close reading strategies and taking personal responsibility for their learning. This year you will continue to hear about our work in helping to develop your child’s ability to critically analyze text – both literature and informational text, and how they are to support their answers to questions by using information from the text. You will find your student working more collaboratively with other students in their learning and they will be spending increasing amounts of time in researching, using technology tools. Don’t hesitate to drop in at any time or to call the office at 316-5400 if you have questions, suggestions, or concerns. We are here for our children!
