Please Note

Many of the links below are broken because when I left LTUSD my district Skydrive account was deleted. Fortunately, I made a backup Skydrive account so all of my lesson plans and projects are still in the cloud, however, I have not had the time (or need) to relink them on these pages. Smile

Happy Summer!

Dear Students,

Thank you for a fun, educational year! As you go through middle school, high school, and college please remember that a good education is the key to success and will help you accomplish your dreams. You may have setbacks, but please do not give up on yourself. Do your homework and read, read, read! Have the courage to do the right thing, speak up for what you believe in, know what you are talking about, tell the truth, and trust yourself enough to pursue what you are passionate about.

Please stay in touch with me. You can contact me at julbutler@aol.com . I have had this email for 21 years! I love hearing from my former students, some of whom  have overcome incredible obstacles to graduate from college. If you ever need someone to talk to, please do not hesitate to write to me.Passion

I will miss you!
Love,
Mrs. Butler

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening (PowerPoint)
by Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
