Hopefully this week we are all settling back into our routines. At BMS, we’re back in full swing. It has been so GREAT to be back at school and to see the students in the halls and classrooms. Butler is a busy place! And our students have been wonderful. They continue to do a great job with the procedures we have put in place this year to mitigate the risk of COVID. Thank you for your support as well.
I’d like to take a moment to reference the sad and discouraging events that happened in our nation’s capital. We also want to recognize that we have many different people in our school who represent different backgrounds, cultures, beliefs, and opinions, and that is something we celebrate as good citizens here at Butler. So at BMS, yesterday we reminded students of a couple things. This what we said,
First, you are surrounded by adults who care about you and want each day to be GREAT. You are safe here. Second, as Bruins we are always focused on being GREAT. Often as we interact with a variety of people, there are different opinions and ideas. One of the great things about our country and our school is this diversity. Please remember that we need to be kind to each other and respectful. One skill we should all be trying to develop is to truly listen to understand. We may not agree on everything, but we can be kind and respectful. That is what Good Citizens do. Remember, we are… GREAT Bruins–Good Citizens, Respectful, Engaged, Always Safe, and Totally Responsible.
