Toys for Tots

Thank you for your generosity in making Toys for Tots a great success again this year!  We were able to collect thirteen boxes full of toys to donate to families in need - WOW!  The Marines came to collect them last Friday.  They also put on a presentation about the Toys for Tots program and brought a light armored vehicle, which students were able to go outside and see.  Ms. Bollinger even got to go for a ride!  Special thanks to Mrs. Cedor, Miss Buckley and the Third Grade Service Project Students for working to bring this program to our school.  Way to go, B.C.E. students and community!

November Hello Campaign Theme - Gratitude 

Our November Hello theme is Gratitude. As one of our Hello activities for the month Mrs Barnes, our BTS art teacher, had all the students add their handprint to a banner for our Herriman Police Department to say "Thank You" for all their hard work! Today some of our BCE Student Council members explained our kindness campaign to the Police Department and that our school made this banner for them to show how grateful we are for them.

About Me – Sherry Sutton

It is an honor and privilege to join Butterfield Canyon Elementary School.

After graduating from Radford University in Virginia with a degree in Elementary Education, I spent most of my adult life in El Paso, TX. There, I raised three amazing children and worked for the El Paso Independent School District for 25 years, teaching kindergarten through sixth grade, and finally technology.

About a year ago, I moved to Salt Lake to be closer to two of my children and three—soon to be four—grandchildren.

When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending as much time as possible with them, traveling, photography and mountain biking.

I am looking forward to this opportunity and very excited to be a Bobcat!
