Principal's Message

A message from the principal…
Dear Families,
On behalf of the staff at Butterfly Ridge Elementary School (BRES), I am thrilled to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year! I would like to take this opportunity to personally welcome you to the Butterfly Ridge Elementary (BRES) community! It is an honor to be the first principal of BRES! I’m eagerly looking forward to working with all of our students, parents, staff and community throughout the school year!
It is my belief that the most important job one will ever hold is that of a parent. As the parent of three boys, I recognize the efforts parents make on a daily basis to ensure we are providing a nurturing environment and supports to help our own children thrive. As a principal, I approach my work with the students and families in much the same way. I consider it a privilege to be a part of your child/children’s school life and watch them grow as learners. We will work together to help our students meet their greatest potential.
We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
·         Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
·         Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
·         Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
·         Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school
I am looking forward to working with you in service of our children.
Together in Education,
Dr. Patricia Hosfelt
