Welcome From the Principal

On behalf of all of us here at Butts Road Primary, I would like to welcome you to our school! It is a privilege to serve as principal of Butts Road Primary. Our school has an outstanding reputation, and I am proud to be part of such a wonderful legacy of excellence. Butts Road Primary is filled with enthusiastic students who are ready and willing to learn, supportive families who are interested and involved in their children's education, and a caring and dedicated professional staff who are committed to providing children with a quality educational foundation for school and beyond.
     I would like to encourage each parent to stay active in your child's education. School is very much a partnership, and I hope that we will continue in that spirit throughout the school year. Communicate frequently with your child’s teacher, and with me. I certainly realize that many of you lead busy lives, and it is often difficult to volunteer or visit school. However, taking just a few minutes in the evening to read to your child, talk with your child about school, check your ParentVUE page, or simply see that your child is organized for the next school day can have great benefits. I want Butts Road Primary to be your child’s second favorite place to be, besides being home with you.
     Please feel free to contact any of us at Butts Road if you would like more information about our school.
