The best part of anyday is watching our TK students. They even get excited going to the cafeteria for lunch. Our youngest just turned 4. They love a full day class & their rest time. @smallschoolda @nrea1 @kcsos

@ButtonwillowUSD did the yearly beginning of the year talks, Grades 1-8, today. A little something different for 4-8; a @Kahoot interactive game for prizes. Apparently there areas like cell phones & bullying that the students were well aware of already. @smallschoolda #bwrunners
