Virtual PTO Meeting
Monday, September 21 | 7pm

Please join us for our first general PTO meeting of the 2020-21 school year (click here for the agenda). Come to meet fellow parents and hear ideas and plans for virtual engagement this fall.  We will vote on the 2020-2021 Bylaws, Budget, and Chairperson Slate.

Zoom meeting details were forwarded in a separate email from Mr. Funseth on September 15. Please refer to that email for login details. Thank you!
Please note: While large school group activities are not permitted at this time, our PTO Executive Board has been exploring various event options with administrators. We will keep you posted as soon as information becomes available. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
PTO FAMILY DIRECTORY
directory
This year, we will again use Google Forms to collect Directory information. We do not retain data from previous years, so you will need to submit information for each child this school year. It is quick and easy and will only require a few minutes of your time.

Click here to get started. This directory is password protected and the information is not used for any kind of solicitation. It is a great way for you to get connected to other families in the class, or in the Butler community, as teachers will not be publishing class lists. Many families found this to be a valuable resource during distance learning last school year.
HEAD ROOM PARENT COORDINATORS SIGN UP NOW OPEN!
We are now recruiting Head Room Parent Coordinators (HRPC) for each class (no Party Planners at this time). Please click here to read details and sign up. Please note, each classroom will have one HRPC. Parents/guardians are welcome to sign up for multiple homerooms, however, we try to not have anyone do this role in multiple classrooms, unless there are no other volunteers.

**Although volunteers are not currently permitted in the building, this is a good time to get your clearances completed or updated. You MUST have current clearances in order to volunteer. Click here for volunteer clearance information.
COUPON BOOK FUNDRAISER (now through October 7)
New this year! SaveAround coupon books are for sale (formerly KidStuff) thru October 7. Pandemic friendly! Just click the link in the flyer, purchase a book or two, and share with family and friends. Your order will be shipped direct to you! Books are $26 (which includes $1 transaction fee from the company) but the savings are huge!
FAMILY CONTRIBUTIONS
can you help
We know this is a unique year with many challenges, so if you are in a position to do so, please donate as you can...but please feel no pressure.

We ask for a yearly family contribution to help offset the costs of providing great family activities and supporting educational initiatives at Butler. It also eliminates the need for numerous fundraisers during the year. Online payment through MyPaymentsPlus is available. Although the option for a contribution is listed for each Butler child in your household, we are only asking for one contribution of $15 per family. There is also an option to sponsor another family, and contribute $30. Thank you for your consideration.
DINE & DONATE - RITA'S OF CHALFONT (Sept. 19)
Rita's Dine & Donate
Saturday, September 19 | 3-8pm

It's a SWEET combination! Help a local business and help our school at the same time!

Simply mention Butler when you order, and a portion of your sale will go back to the Butler PTO. Click here for the flyer.
