Welcome to Mrs. Roeske's 3rd Grade website. I believe that  education and social development go hand in hand.Tailored focus on academics and the whole child means that every child will find a happy home here.


 Character Counts at Butterfield Elementary!

The Six Pillars of Character are an essential part of the school day for our students at Butterfield. They offer a way for the students to make better choices and to conduct themselves with a general ethics code throughout their day.

The Six Pillars are:

Trustworthiness, Respect (yellow), Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship

Butterfield students work hard to be TRRFCC people of character.



Code of Conduct

Butterfield Bobcats strive to:

Believe in themselves and others.

Organize themselves for learning each day.

Be responsible for their own actions.

Care and show respect for everyone and everything.

Always display a positive attitude.

Treat others with dignity.

Show pride in our school.


Every Friday is Spirt Day here at Butterfield. Please wear green, yellow, or orange (3rd grade character trait color)!!!!!

 Every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month is Popcorn Friday. Students can purchase popcorn, Smencils, and hair bows during lunch recess. All money goes to PTO!!!
