Welcome to the Circle school family! We are pleased that you have decided to entrust part of your

Circle Unified School District 375 stretches across the northwestern quarter of Butler County and

communities of Greenwich, Benton, Towanda and Oil Hill (a subdivision of El Dorado). Our
enrollment, of approximately 1850 students, has been on the increase with many new students

caring sense of “family” that we value so much. We will continue to make our district unity a priority
and we will be diligent to maintain the wholesome environment that we all desire for our kids.
Circle is a special place. We have an enthusiastic and highly qualified staff of teachers and support
personnel to work with your children on a daily basis. We believe that all children can learn when
given enough time and provided with the appropriate instructional supports. We value community

likelihood of student success increases dramatically when home and school are working together
toward a common goal. Our vow is to always “keep the main thing the main thing”; and the main
thing is the teaching and learning of the intended curriculum.
Positive relationships are vital for success. We encourage your input and desire open communication
with you about your child’s education. Observing the appropriate chain of command is critical for a
positive learning environment. If you have concerns or questions about your child’s schooling, please

hopes and dreams and to give them the educational foundation necessary to pursue those dreams. It
is an honor to serve you and we hope that you have a fantastic school year!
