    Dine & Donate

There is great fun for all members of the family, including 20+ carnival games and activities, face painting, a silent auction, theme basket raffles, snacks, and lunch options. By participating in this fun-filled day, families can enjoy time together and with other school families while helping support many great programs at Butler. A successful Spring Fair means we don’t have to bother families with numerous fundraisers throughout the year. So that makes it a win for all! Although games are geared towards elementary students, you are encouraged to bring the entire family. Our Silent Auction features a myriad of items from food and dining to entertainment to merchandise.

     

    Teacher/Staff Appreciation

    Three times per year we show our thanks to our amazing Butler staff with food and a thank you gift.  We invite parents to donate items to support these celebrations.
