VANDALIA — The following is important information for parents of students in the Vandalia-Butler City Schools:

Senior Art Show

Our Butler Art Department and our talented students of Butler High School cordially invite you to view the 2018 Butler Senior Art Show featuring the magnificent art talents of Allison Baker, Lauren Davis, Adam Doria, Courtney Kessler, Kailyn Larger, Jalyn Love, Jessica Sacks and Megan Zins. The exhibit in our school atrium remains on display until Wednesday, May 2.

New Music Course offered at Butler

A new music course has just been added for next school year: Class Piano. This course is designed for students who wish to develop basic piano playing skills or expand upon their existing skills. Time in class will be spent both on and off the keyboards. While playing, students will be working individually and in small groups to master the techniques of playing and to learn assigned pieces of literature appropriate for their skill level. Time will also be spent learning basic music notation and theory. The class will be limited to 16 students due to the new keyboarding hardware that will be installed in one of our computer labs. Students who have an interest in this class should see their counselor this week to adjust their course requests.
