film academy

Broad Street Elementary School scholars participated in Remake Learning Days in May.

The Remake Learning Day Film Academy event allowed for a partnership with WQED Film Academy and Broad Street Elementary School. The scholars learned that a storyboard is a visual representation of film sequence and breaks down the action into individual panels. Next, they got to work creating their own storyboard. Many of Broad Street scholars hope to create their own movie one day. This exciting day also revealed that we have many talented writers and illustrators at BSES.

Scholars and their teachers also enjoyed remake learning time within their classroom. Below you will find details of the varied grade level activities.

We are very excited to share that Butler Area School District has been awarded a $1,382,353 grant through the Pennsylvania Department of Education! At the April 8th school board meeting, I shared with the BASD Board of School Directors that these funds are through the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (BSCA), which was signed into law on June 25, 2022. Through this legislation, Congress authorized $1 billion in funding to provide students with safer and healthier learning environments.

BSES Pay it Forward

To honor Veterans Day, Broad Street Elementary School participated in their annual Pay-it-Forward week.

BSES kicked off the week by honoring our Marine Officer Jim on his birthday. Then scholars in grades K-5 created banners to recognize Inspired Hearts and Hands, Fishbone Ministries and Community Alliance Church. In addition, thank you letters were written to the occupants of the Butler Veterans Hospice and Butler Veterans hospital.

The BSES Village may be tiny, but they are mighty in the area of appreciation!
