Meet the new Principal, Jay Eads
My name is Jay Eads and I have been assigned as the principal at Butterfield Canyon Elementary. Here is a little about me. I have been in education for 20 years, and I am dual licensed in secondary and elementary. I began working at Ogden High and then moved to Granite School District where I taught elementary grades for 13 years.
I then moved to Jordan School District and worked as a Digital Learning Specialist for 4 1/2 years and have been an Assistant Principal for the last 2 1/2 years in Bluffdale and West Jordan.
I hold a BA, MEd and an EdD and 5 endorsements in technology, ESL, Gift and Talented and in History and English. I am married, live here in Herriman and have since 2003. I have two adult children, one who is married and who has two children, (my grandchildren) who are the sparkle of my life.
I firmly believe that education is about ensuring that every student maximizes their learning potential. Student growth is extremely important to me in terms of both academic and social emotional development.I also strongly believe we need to create a safe and engaging environment for students to come and learn as we prepare them for their next step in the education process. Finally, I believe it is important to give students the opportunity to develop both academic and leadership skills that will assist them in becoming productive and good citizens of our community.
I love the outdoors, hiking, ATVing, star gazing, painting, photography, reading and swimming. I have lived in 9 states and love traveling.
I am grateful for all each of you do to support your children, our students, our school and our community. I look forward to partnering with you to help ensure that each of our students are successful and have great experiences during their journey here at Butterfield Canyon Elementary.
Meet the new Assistant Principal, Hallie Myler
I am so excited for this opportunity to be at Butterfield Canyon Elementary. Here is a little about myself. I have been in education for over 10 years. I was an elementary school teacher at Granite School District, then moved on to an intern assistant principal at Davis School District.
I have a BA, MS and a MEd and 1 endorsement in STEM. I have been married for 25 years and we have 2 children. I love camping, boating and being outdoors.
My passion is to create a loving and safe environment for ALL students. I believe that every student can learn and develop skills to become what they desire to be in the future. Children are our future and we need to believe in them that they can make a difference.
School Lunch Info
Beginning in the new school year, families must once again apply for the income-based free and reduced lunch subsidy. That's because the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced recently that it is returning to pre-COVID-19 rules requiring families to apply for free and reduced lunch, rather than allowing all K-12 students to receive free meals.
