Public School
District #836


I am excited to begin the 2018-2019 school year.   We have made many changes over the past year.  Butterfield- Odin is in a strong financial position.  This allows us to offer a quality education program to our K-12 students.  We offer a full complement of science and math courses.  Our plans include adding a 3D printer program for our students.   We provide courses for our vocational and college bound students. 

Our district also participates in a sharing agreement with St. James.  Several classes are available to our students who are bussed to this and other locations.  Our sports program is also included in our St. James sharing agreement.   I feel that a strong education program should consist of many components.  St. James also provides classes in agriculture and an opportunity for our students to participate in the 4 H program!  Butterfield-Odin has a strong music arts program.  We offer band and choir classes and lessons to our kindergarten through 12th grade students. 

We value small class sizes which gives us an opportunity to work with your student’s educational and personal development.  We are adding new security upgrades to our building.  I am proud of the opportunity that our school board and community provides to our students!!
