Principal's Message

Welcome to Mary Butterworth School

At Mary Butterworth School we believe all students have the right to high quality learning environments and to learning opportunities that are relevant to them now, and in their futures.  Our staff are committed to providing extra-curricular opportunities for students to allow them to grow as individuals, and to become contributing members of our community.

Mary Butterworth School is a positive and caring school  that values the relationships we have with our students, our families and our school community.  We have high expectations of our students and challenge them to be the best they can be academically, physically, socially and emotionally.

It is our goal to provide outstanding opportunities for each student to grow academically, physically, socially and emotionally.  We strive to provide the very best assessment practices that support academic growth and for our students to become engaged in their learning.

Parents and guardians will receive information related to special school events, meetings, and other information via SchoolZone.epsb.ca.  SchoolZone also gives families access to school information, report cards, attendance information and specific classroom news.  If you require a password for SchoolZone, or assistance with using it, please contact the office.

As students are more successful in all aspects of school when families, the school community and the school are connected we strongly encourage you to participate in school events throughout the year.  We look forward to working with you this year and in the years to come.

 

Sincerely,

Cathy Taylor,
Principal
