Congratulations!

Our own Kaylee Gurney, a sixth grade student here at Butterfield Canyon, won second place in the girls' cub division at an international archery competition over the weekend.  She exceeded her goal, achieving a personal best score of 295 out of 300 possible points.  What an incredible accomplishment!  Congratulations, Kaylee!

Kaylee's mom said that she had struggled with attention and focus until her grandfather gave her a bow when she was seven years old.  Kaylee told us that she loved the bow from the moment she first tried it out with her grandpa at the store.  The focus and attention required in archery have helped her to greatly improve in these areas, as well as to become a world champion!  As her teacher, Mrs. Keller said, "This girl's got grit!"  Kaylee is a great example of the growth mindset we embody here at B.C.E.  We are so happy for her!

Kaylee asked us to make sure that we included how grateful she is for her mom and dad, her grandparents, and her coach.  Her family would also like to express their appreciation for her coach, Bart Winterton of "Leave Your Mark Archery," for the many hours he has put in to helping her succeed.

Successful Family Fun Night

Thank you to all those of you who came to support our Family Fun Night!  We had a wonderful night, filled with exciting STEM, arts and literacy activities, culminating with beautiful performances by our school orchestra and choir.  We appreciate the many hours that went into preparing for this night - a huge THANK YOU to our PTA, our teachers, our orchestra and choir directors and members, our student council, and our students and families!


Spreading Kindness...

As part of our Hello Kindness Campaign, our BCE Student Council presented a poster to our Herriman Unified Fire Department to thank them for their service to our community. Every student was given the chance to add their thumbprint to the poster!


4th Grade Waters Van Presentations

Our 4th grade students were able to participate in a Waters Van Visit by the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium. Students were able to develop an understanding of the function and role of a wetland in Utah through hands-on learning and by meeting animal ambassadors from Utah’s wetlands.

Introducing our New Administrative Assistant!

We would like to congratulate our previous Administrative Assistant, Connie Robinson, on her retirement! Our BCE community would like to welcome our new Administrative Assistant, Tricia Loveridge! Here is a little more about her...

Hello! My name is Tricia Loveridge. I have lived in Herriman with my family for the past 12 years. I love Herriman! It is such a beautiful place. I just recently became the new administrative assistant at Butterfield Canyon Elementary, which I am very excited about!!  I have worked at the school for 9 years doing different jobs. I love the people I work with and the students at our school! We have an amazing school and staff and I consider myself very lucky to be a part of it.

A little about about me. I grew up in Upstate New York in a small town called Whitesboro. I love New York and still consider myself a New Yorker. I also lived in Nevada for 13 years in a little town called Winnemucca.  I am married to an amazing husband and we have 5 beautiful children, 4 boys and 1 girl. I also have 1 daughter-in-law and 1 adorable grand baby!

When I’m not at work I love to travel, cook, spend time with my family, use my silhouette and browse Pinterest. I also love being a Bobcat!!! I look forward to helping each of you at our school.

-Tricia Loveridge


5th Grade Biz Town Field Trip

The JA City 5th grade program (JA BizTown) combines in-class learning with a day-long visit to this fully-interactive simulated learning facility. Through daily lessons, hands-on activities and active participation in running the city, students learn to connect the dots between what they are learning in school and what they will need to know in their life beyond graduation.  During their day at JA BizTown, students work as employees in various businesses facilitated by volunteer educators and business professionals.  They are paid for their labor and they manage personal and business checking accounts. Throughout the day students also learn first-hand about time and money management as they work, bank and shop as consumers.  The JA BizTown experience helps students develop competitive skills and confidence.
