AWARE stands for Arlington Will Award and Recognize (Educational) Excellence.  The AWARE foundation recognizes and rewards exceptional teachers in the AISD.  AWARE recognizes all nominated teachers and awards a cash prize to the winner and runner-up in each category at its annual banquet.

Butler’s nominees this year are 4th grade teacher Erin Wallace and 6th grade teacher Erin Jacobs. They will be recognized and honored at the AWARE banquet later this spring.  Congratulations and THANK YOU to these exceptional teachers!

The PTA Honorary Life Membership Award is one of the highest forms of recognition to let a volunteer know how much we truly appreciate their dedication to our children and the community.  These Life Membership Award recipients have made, and are making, a worthwhile contribution to the well-being of children.  THANK YOU to these outstanding individuals!
