Local School Principals Welcome Students & Parents to 2022-23 School Year


Welcome to the 2022-23 school year for Butler County High School!  We are entering year three of our vision of Building a Better BCHS, and it is going to be a BIG year for us all.  We have so many great things to celebrate as we transition from last year to this year.  Our students and teachers who make up BCHS are incredible.   Last school year, we worked hard to infuse the school days and year with some fun and excitement with our rallies, games, and student recognitions, and our students responded with overwhelming success.  Our band scored a distinguished rating at KMEA!  Our softball and Lady Bears basketball teams brought home DISTRICT titles! Our archery, cross country, swim, and track teams competed at STATE!  Our FBLA, FCCLA, and track teams competed at NATIONALS!  Our students earned the highest totals of college and career readiness in the history of Butler County High School, as well as receiving the highest total in scholarship offers in the history of Butler County High School.  I would say that is Building a Better BCHS!  It is a GREAT time to be a bear so we are excited to have you join us for the 2022-23 school year.

Building A Better BCHS

Being accountable for our actions and education

Creating a safe and spirited community

Helping our students become college/career ready

Striving for excellence today and tomorrow.

BCHS is excited to have some new faculty members this year, as well as a couple of friendly faces that students may recognize.  We are so thankful to have Mr. Brandon Sanders working with our growing social studies department this year.  We are also thrilled to have Mr. Harrison Moore teaching English at BCHS this year after a standout semester of student-teaching at BCHS.  Students will be excited to see Ms. Danielle Stahl back working with our English Language Learners this year.  Another face students may recognize from her work at NBES is Mrs. Pam McDowell.  Joining Mrs. McDowell in working with our students with individual education plans is Mr. Josh Dergue.  Most of these teachers are joining us due to the expanding student population at BCHS so we would like to thank our Butler County Schools Board of Education for recognizing the need for growth in our faculty. Each of these teachers have already made an impact on our environment at BCHS, and we are thankful to have them ready to work with our students. 

     Our faculty and custodial staff have worked very hard getting everything ready for the start of a new school year.  Please contact us at any time by phone 526-2204 or by email at



On behalf of the faculty and staff at the Butler County Learning Center welcome to the 2022-2023 school year. We would like to extend a warm welcome to those students and parents who are new to Butler County Learning Center as you continue your educational journey.  With this school year we are looking forward to being fully staffed with the Principal Ben Annis, Counselor Sam Hartford, High School Teacher Bryant McCellon, Middle School Teacher Dennis McCrocklin, and Aaron Lockwood teaching special needs and virtual students. . The faculty at Butler County Learning Center is working hard to ensure that every student builds not only their academic knowledge but also works towards developing a solid character foundation.   

Our Mission at the Butler County Learning Center is to encourage and promote student development of behavioral, academic, and social skills in order to be a more productive and educated member of the family, community, and society.  Students at the Butler County Learning Center will focus on three areas:  Respect, Responsibility, and Readiness.  By focusing on these three areas, we will strive to meet our student’s academic and behavioral achievement goals. We encourage students to be responsible for their own actions, inactions, and words ultimately endearing the student to become an active participant in their own education. Whether students are working from home, or in person here in the Learning Center, they are representing our school system, and will still be held to these standards. 

Parental involvement is a critical factor in the success of our students and our school.  We extend a warm welcome to all of our parents and encourage them to become an integral part in their child’s education and development during their time here.  As we progress in the development and refinement of our programs, parental input will be key in determining future endeavors for the benefit of their child and for the benefit of all of our students.     

Student achievement is our first priority at the Butler County Learning Center.  If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me at school (1-270-526-2264) . Stop in and visit us at the Butler County Learning Center anytime!!



BCMS Community:

I want to officially welcome everyone to the 2022-2023 school year!  I hope you are enjoying your summer and have exciting adventures to share with us.  Over the summer, the faculty and staff of Butler County Middle School (BCMS) have been working hard to prepare the building for the first day of school.  We are excited to open our doors with no covid restrictions!!

I am privileged to have the opportunity to continue to serve as the Butler County Middle School Principal and am excited to see the incoming 6th grade students.  This year BCMS will be having an Open House on August 1st from 4:00 PM-6:00 PM.  Students and parents are welcome to come anytime during that time frame to tour the building, meet teachers and staff, visit our Youth Service Center for information on supplies, purchase yearbooks, and receive school schedules.  Remember, in order to receive your schedule your online registration must be complete.  You can complete that online or you may complete it at the open house.  In order to maximize your time in the building we encourage you to complete before you arrive. 

Please remember all incoming 6th graders are required to have their immunizations and physicals before the first day of school. These forms can be brought with you to orientation if you have them completed. 

It is an honor to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful students, supportive families, and amazing community.  As you know, the middle school years are such a critical time in the social, mental, and physical development of students.  I look forward to working with each of you to make this school year a success.

Finally, BCMS wants to thank our custodial crew who have been working diligently to prepare our building for the start of the new school year. We also want to thank our school board for their continued support in helping to create a great environment for learning and developing future leaders. 

Enjoy the remaining days of summer!  BCMS looks forward to seeing all of the new and familiar faces as we return to school on Wednesday, August 10th, 2022.

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. 

I would like to welcome several new staff members to North Butler. First, I would like to welcome our new school secretary, Mrs. Kaitlyn Williams.

Next, I would like to welcome our new team members Mrs. Hannah Hunt, Mrs. Taylor Logsdon, Mrs. Becca Felty, Ms. Hunter Meade, Mrs. Gerri House, Mrs. Kelsey Phelps, Mrs. Rachel Givens, Mrs. Audrey Pharris and Mrs. Sarah Ward.

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 definitely lucky to have such wonderful custodians. 


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.
