    Coyote Community,

    It is with great pride and excitement that I welcome everyone to the 2021-2022 school year! I am honored to have the opportunity to lead James P. Butler Elementary with such a rich tradition of education. Along with the teachers and staff, we will work to continue the legacy of success. The faculty and staff at James P. Butler is working hard to ensure that our school year will be one filled with many successes. We are committed to do our best to help every scholar every day. We will focus on Social Emotional Learning and Whole Brain Teaching (Teaching the way the brain designed) and continue to provide academic experiences for our scholars that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.  I will always be available to you so feel free to call or email me at any time. Please read our mission and vision that our teachers and staff have developed collaboratively for your scholars:


    To create a Professional Learning Community that focuses on high levels of learning, works collaboratively in teams, and which shares the responsibility with all stakeholders in providing experiences that are rigorous, relevant and fosters long lasting meaningful relationships. 


    We will build a strong foundation for all scholars through the three C's-communication, collaboration, and consistency. We are dedicated to prepare every scholar for a life of significance while equipping them with a solid academic foundation.

    I look forward to working with you as a team to help each scholar at James P. Butler meet their goals and have a successful year.
