Rooted in Tradition, Ready for the Future. Catholic Schools Week Begins!
It’s here! Today, Sunday, January 28th marks the first day of the national celebration of Catholic Schools in America, Catholic Schools Week. What is it the makes Butler Catholic School so special? We think it is the fact that our students are rooted in tradition, but ready for the future! Butler Catholic students are permeated in an environment that makes Jesus the most important part of each day. Teachers are committed to help each child fulfill their academic potential. We have kept in our curriculum those things that make Catholic education truly excellent. One tradition that every former Catholic school graduate will remember, and that we are still committed to teach, is all second grade students learn cursive handwriting.
BCS is also investing in the future of Catholic education. We challenge our students to achieve digital fluency by incorporating technology throughout the curriculum. To advance each child’s learning experience, students have the opportunity to use laptops, iPads, Chromebooks and coding robots. This year, our technology program has expanded to include coding for our students. Using Chromebooks or iPads, students are writing code to program robots. First through fifth grade students are programming Dot and Dash Robots, and sixth through eighth grade students are programming Ozobots. Our goal is to develop fully engaged 21st century learners who have the digital confidence necessary to succeed in higher education and the working world.
