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

Butler parent-teacher conferences

Butler parent-teacher conferences are on Thursday, Sept. 21, from 3:00 to 6:30 p.m. (Some calendars have them incorrectly listed as September 14.) Sign up for conferences by contacting Mrs. Cindy Snyder (937-415-6309) in our Guidance Department. I encourage you to bring your daughter/son with you for the conferences.


There are still some spots available for the PreACT and PSAT, first come, first served. Students in grades 9-12 are eligible to register for the exams. Students will need to stop by guidance to pick up a registration form and return it to guidance along with the payment. The cost of the PreACT is $12, and the cost to the PSAT is $16. The PSAT will be administered on Wednesday, Oct. 11, 8:00 a.m. – noon in the SAC. The PreACT will be administered on Friday, Oct. 20, 8:00 a.m. – noon in the Central Gym. October 20th is a staff report day so this will minimize loss of class time for those students choosing to participate. If you have any questions, please contact the guidance office at 937-415-6309.

Muse Machine registration opens

Online registration is now open for students to join MUSE Machine. Interested students should go to www.musemachine.com. Once there, hover over “Students” and click on “Become a Member,” click on the banner for schools A-L, and then click on the Butler High School banner. You can fill out the form, choose your level of membership, and pay online, all in one place. Student members will be treated to four in-school performances this year, which is a great and inexpensive way to see quality, professional performances in areas of voice, instrument, and dance. Please join as soon as possible as students must join before the first performance in October.

FootballMania Fundraiser for Butler Wrestling
