Dear Butterfield Families,

Welcome to the Butterfield Elementary School, home of Jett, the Blue Jay! Butterfield School is one of six elementary schools in Lombard School District 44.  We are a kindergarten through fifth grade school with approximately 300 students. In addition to classroom instruction, we provide daily physical education, music, art, library, English Language support, differentiation and special education services. As with all District 44 schools, our school is technology-rich and a variety of tools and strategies are incorporated into our daily instruction.


The teachers at Butterfield School are highly qualified, dedicated professionals. They work diligently to ensure a very positive and supportive educational environment for the students at Butterfield.  Our instruction aligns to the Illinois State Standards and we continually review and refine our resources. Technology is integrated through the disciplines to support 21st Century Learning. We incorporate the Daily 5 in our literacy program and enjoy a hands-on science curriculum utilizing FOSS Science kits.  Eureka, a program associated with Engage New York, is our core math curriculum.


Butterfield School is a PBIS school, and we encourage our entire community to display our universal expectations of being Respectful, Responsible, Ready and Safe.  Students from all grade levels are recognized on a weekly basis for their outstanding behavior, and each month we celebrate our accomplishments when we meet our all-school goal.

A very important part of our school is the Butterfield PTA that supports the Butterfield children in many ways including funding field trips and sponsoring family events. Please consider joining our PTA and getting involved with this very special group. We have many amazing events scheduled for this year.

It is truly an honor and a privilege to be the principal of Butterfield School. I look forward to another outstanding year!
