The great thing about PE at BW is that students do plenty of cardio work, but also learn the intricasies of sports like croquet. Share a spot of tea while striking a ball with a mallet. Hopefully the striker can avoid the oppo "opponent". @smallschoolda #1townschoolcommunity

Roady & Gumby are back in BW working hard, although Gumby is a bit worn out after a few days at the @smallschoolda conference in Sacramento. They were the stars of the speech that Buttonwillow's Superintendent, @stuartpackard gave to open the statewide conference. @nrea1

Fundamentally good decision making and great student ingenuity. When the construction of a solar project requires an ADA compliant jog in the fence, why not turn it into a soccer goal. @smallschoolda @sitelogiq

Everyday is a beautiful day in Buttonwillow. Today is truly beautiful. 72 degrees & students are able to work outside. Dr. Seuss' green eggs & ham served by the staff to our students for breakfast. A positive school climate! #bwrunners @Teach_Turpin_24 @SmallSchoolDA @nrea1

A big thank you to the BW community for supporting @ButtonwillowUSD. Student learning and safety continues to be the #1 priority. Our staff has a 94% attendance rate and our student attendance is off 7% (88%) from the pre-covid norm of 95%. Dedication to learning is obvious.
