Hello Butler Bulldogs,
I am writing this on September 25th which is the 23rd day of school – more than 1 month is
under our belts! We have had an extremely smooth beginning, and life has continued to be
good. Last night was our PTSO Open House. We approved the budget, viewed a Student
Council skit on “Invest in Your Child,” and provided time for parents to meet the teachers
and hear about individual courses. In addition there was a meeting for senior parents about
planning for life after Butler. I spoke with many parents individually and it certainly
seemed that students are on the right track.
Speaking of being on the right track, many Butler students will be taking the SAT at Inde-
pendence High School on October 10th, and 10th and 11th graders will be taking the PSAT
on October 14th. The PSAT is a valuable tool for us in helping students to choose the best
courses and it is also used to identify students for scholarships. Please make sure that your
sophomore or junior gets a good night’s sleep the night before. Freshmen and seniors are to
report at the regular time and will have a regular school day. Also, progress reports will be
distributed on September 29th and 30th. Be sure to ask your student for copies in addition to
monitoring progress with Parent Assist.
I would encourage you to make it a habit to read the Bulldog Blitz as it is the most effective

secretary extraordinaire, for her devotion to making the Blitz so thorough. Also, Anne
Bucci and Stephanie Ferron, our
