Principal's Message

Ben Wilson

Students, Parents and Community: 

I hope you have had a well-deserved, relaxing summer break. On behalf of the faculty and staff of NBES, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for a productive and positive school year! We are looking forward to developing and maintaining a successful partnership with you in order to achieve student success. At North Butler Elementary, our purpose is to meet and exceed the needs of every child, every day. This includes supporting our students academically, socially, and emotionally. We believe in the potential of every student, and that every child can learn. We can achieve this together by continuing to provide experiences that are positive, relevant, and challenging. With that being said, we are also excited about implementing our new curriculum in Reading (Wonders, K-5) and Math (Reveal, K-2 and enVision, 3-5).

I would like to welcome our new staff members to North Butler: Mrs. Gina McCrocklin (Custodian), Mr. William Jared (Custodian) and Mrs. Katelyn Hart (Speech-Language Pathologist). We are extremely excited for these additions to our CUB family and have no doubt that they will bring a great deal to our school for many years to come! 

Next, I would like to thank our custodians Mrs. Gina McCrocklin and Mr. William Jared for their hard work and dedication to getting our school ready for the upcoming school year. They have worked tirelessly on the floors, walls, and other facilities in order to make our school look tremendous for our students. North Butler is lucky to have such wonderful custodians who have made this school look new!

We look forward to learning more about you and your child/children as we work together to continue providing a positive, engaging, and rigorous learning environment for all students. We take a lot of pride in our school and community at NBES! When you stop by our school you will be greeted and assisted with a smile by our secretary, Mrs. Kaitlyn Williams. 

Please feel free to contact me anytime you have questions or concerns. I look forward to working with each family during this upcoming school year. You can be assured that we will always do what’s best for our students. As we take on new challenges and continue to meet new goals, we will grow our students together into well-rounded citizens.


Mr. Ben Wilson, Principal
