Dear Families,

Just like that, it is nearly mid-April! My apologies that a newsletter did not go out in March; time simply got away from us at Epworth Elementary. A newsletter will be sent in May and you can expect a couple in the summer months as well.

As was communicated at the end of March, I have accepted an offer from the Western Dubuque Board of Education to serve as the next Superintendent of Schools, effective July 1. I am very excited about this opportunity, yet equally sad to be leaving my post as Principal of Epworth Elementary School. Epworth Elementary is my second home and our students, staff, and community members are my second family. It's too early for me to get emotional, as we have two great months of school in front of us, yet know that EES is special and achieves at such a high level because of the amazing people connected to our school.

Parent/teacher conferences were held virtually and in person at Epworth Elementary at the end of February. Roughly 98% of our families were in attendance, which demonstrates the incredible partnership between home and school. Thank you for continuing to make your child's education a priority. The connection between home and school is critical for optimal student growth.

Thursday, April 14 and Tuesday, April 19 will be school days, due to cancellations from earlier in the winter. Please note that there will be no school on Friday, April 15 and Monday, April 18, due to Spring Break.

As April moves along and we enter the month of May, calendars start to fill up quickly with field trips, special events, and celebrations. We will keep the communication lines wide open to make sure that our families are informed of all the exciting things that are happening to close out the school year. Thank you for your continued support.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns, or whenever you feel necessary throughout the school year. The best way to reach me is [email protected] or 563-876-5514 ext. 7002. We will be most successful this year by keeping the communication lines open to one another. Let's finish strong.

Yours in education,

Dan Butler
