Welcome Mrs. Butzler

This will be my final post on the Cashton Middle/High School blog.  As of July 1, I will be replacing Mr. Saron as the District Administrator for Cashton Public Schools.  I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to work in my new role. I am committed to working with staff, teachers, and community members to foster a nurturing and engaging learning environment that empowers all students to reach their fullest potential.    

As many people already know, the Board of Education has selected a new MS/HS Principal.  Jennifer Butzler joins the Cashton MS/HS team after working for 17 years as a middle and high school physical education teacher in Sparta.  Mrs. Butzler held many teacher leadership positions in Sparta and was recognized in 2012 as Kohl Fellowship winner.  She brings a great deal of experience leading professional learning communities; promoting a safe and respectful environment; and designing consistent and efficient assessment systems.  She is a resident and alumni of Cashton Public Schools, and she is already familiar face to many because of her work with Cashton community and athletics organizations.  I am looking forward to working with Mrs. Butzler for many years to come.  

One important project that will keep me quite busy in my first days as District Administrator will be the completion of the projects authorized by the passing of a facilities referendum this past April.  If you are interested in staying informed as to the progress of these projects,  I have created a Cashton Facilities Referendum Blog and Informational Website.  The goal of the blog and website will be to provide consistent project updates to all interested citizens.

Have a great summer!
