HOLIDAY GIVING PROGRAM - THE GIVING TREE
Giving Tree
A great way to offer comfort and support to Butler families this holiday season.

The Butler Giving Tree is now on display in the hallway near the main office. The Giving Tree has tags that display the names of holiday gifts that can be donated for families in our Butler Community who are in need of extra support this holiday season. We invite our Butler students and families to choose a tag (if they wish) to purchase the gift listed. We ask that you wrap the gift and be sure to secure the same tag to the outside of the gift wrap.

All gifts should be delivered to the main office no later than December 15 - to ensure holiday delivery. Thank you for all of your wonderful generosity and support!

For more information, please contact Peggy Bernabei.
HOLIDAY SHOPPE | DECEMBER 9 | 5-8PM
Holiday Shoppe
Friday, December 9 | 5-8 pm
Butler Stage

Please join us for our Annual Holiday Shoppe event on December 9 from 5pm – 8pm on the Butler stage. This is a wonderful way for students to buy holiday gifts for their family and friends.

The flyer with kids budgeting envelopes has been sent home. The envelopes are for budgeting purposes so the kids can go on stage without a parent to keep it a surprise but stay within their spending limit. This is an evening event only. Holiday Shoppe is NOT a drop-off event.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
We are still in need of volunteers for this event so if you are able to offer up your time, please contact Kerri, Michelle, or Christy to help. We look forward to seeing you all there for an exciting night to kick off the holiday season!
