The Vandalia-Butler Foundation, primarily through its VISIONS Endowment Fund, has awarded $14,225 in educational grants to support such innovative initiatives as the launch of a biomedical sciences program, Muse Machine artists-in-residence and an exercise program designed to develop healthy habits in children.

In addition, Butler High School received a $3,440 grant to install a logo and the name of the school on the front façade. A commemorative plaque will pay tribute to the class of 1980, which funded half of the project with a $1,720 class reunion gift that was matched by VISIONS.

Annual MD Fall Feast MD Feast

The MD classrooms at Vandalia-Butler put on their Fall Feast every year on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.  The students spent all day Monday and Tuesday morning cooking and preparing to welcome all the guests.  We feel this is just a small "Thank you" for everything that our administration and staff at Vandalia-Butler Schools do for us and our students so that we can provide them with the best education we can!  We are a big family at Vandalia-Butler, and this is such an excellent way for us to start our Thanksgiving Break and the season of giving!
