Megan Majchrowicz, President

Megan

Hi! My name is Megan Majchrowicz.  I am the proud mother of Isabella and Ian.  Isabella will be in 3rd Grade and Ian is just starting preschool. I am a full-time working mommy and wife of 11 years.  I have spent a considerable amount of my free time volunteering at Butler School. Over the past two years, I have volunteered at the Daddy Daughter Dance, several Scholastic Book Fairs, various classroom parties and Monet with Mom.  Additionally, I have kept very busy with Staff Appreciation all year long. I am also a volunteer cheerleading coach for the Lockport Jr. Porters, and I have so much fun with the girls!  To me, volunteering is very rewarding, and it allows me to help make “Butler” the BEST experience for all our kiddos.  We have an amazing staff at Butler dedicated to our little ones and their families.  Serving on the PTO allows me the opportunity to give back and help make Butler even better! I am excited for the opportunity to serve as Butler School’s President, and I am looking forward to spending more time getting to know the students, parents and teachers!  I look forward to continuing the traditions that make Butler School so GREAT!

Hi! My name is Candace Pehas and I have two children, Ayden and Ryan.  Ayden is in 3rd Grade and Ryan is in 2nd Grade.  I was a Kindergarten Teacher for 12 years before I decided to stay home with my boys. I have loved working with the Butler staff, teachers, parents and students these last three years. This will be my second term as the Vice President on the PTO board, and I am grateful to return again to serve you. Some of the projects I have spent my time volunteering on have included the Spelling Challenge, Santa's Workshop, several Book Fairs, classroom parties and Staff Appreciation. This year, I have also been an Art Mom, which I love! Butler School is an amazing school with dedicated teachers and staff.  Again, I am excited for the opportunity to be Vice President and to help create a fun, welcoming environment for our children and their families!

Danielle Klages, Hospitality Coordinator

 Danielle

Hello, my name is Danielle Klages. I am excited to fulfill my second term on Butler School’s PTO Executive Board as the Hospitality Coordinator. My husband, Brad, and I have been married for 12 years, and we have lived in Lockport for over ten years. Our son Gavin is a 4th grader this year. Professionally I am employed part-time at a hair replacement company. Remarkably, I have been with that same company for over 20 years as a stylist and consultant, and have had dedicated clients with me the entire time.  When my son Gavin started school at Butler, I began my volunteering opportunities.  First, I started out as a volunteer in the Art Appreciation Program and treat days.  Next I began my first term on the PTO Executive Board, and during that time I have volunteered for numerous events including: several book fairs, weekly treat days, movie nights, classroom parties and many more. The warm feeling you get from Butler teachers, staff and parents truly make you feel like you are part of the Butler family. I am absolutely looking forward to the upcoming school year and serving you as the Hospitality Coordinator.  Lastly, I am grateful to be a part of the PTO that has done such amazing things for our school.

Kirsten Primozic, Activity Coordinator

Kirsten

My name is Kirsten Primozic, and I happy to hold the position of Activity Coordinator on Butler’s PTO Executive Board.  My husband and I have been living in Lockport for over ten years.  Together, we have two boys; Nico- who is 6 years old, and starting 1st grade, and Cameron who is 4 years old.  I am a stay-at-home mom, but I work part-time for a company that works with schools and charitable organizations to organize their fundraising events.  This past school year, I was also the Kindergarten Representative on the Luther J. Schilling PTO Executive Board.  Prior to having children, I was a Senior Research Microscopist for eight years, and was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work closely with Forensic Scientists on methods for evidence collection.  In addition, I was also given the opportunity to teach at the Hooke College of Applied Sciences, where I taught classes to the National Guard and Forensic Scientists from around the world.  I am grateful to have the opportunity to be a voice for our children, and to ensure that they are getting the most out of their educational experiences here at Butler School.

Karen Novak, Fundraising Coordinator

My name is Karen Novak, and I am honored to hold the position of Butler’s PTO Fundraising Coordinator!  My husband Pete and I have lived in Lockport for 14 years and our twins, Natalie and Peter, will be in 3rd grade at Butler School.  Over the past three years, I have had the opportunity to volunteer for numerous classroom parties and have truly enjoyed assisting on several PTO events this year including, The Spelling Challenge, The Neon Jam, Dueling for Butler, and The Butler Block Party.  I work full time, but truly enjoy volunteering whenever possible.  Aside from assisting at Butler, I am also the Fundraising Chairperson and Co-Director of Concessions for the Lockport Jr. Porters Pop Warner Football and Cheer program that our children participate in.  I am truly honored to take on this position and continue to make Butler the best school in 33C.  Butler’s PTO has a reputation of being the “best of the best!” Working within the LJP Organization has allowed me to talk with families and PTO members from other districts and it is well known that Butler Families do whatever it takes to ensure that our school always rises to the top!  As I fulfill this position, I promise to do my best to ensure this tradition continues!

Kristin Taphorn, Communications Coordinator   

     I am very excited to serve the Butler PTO as the Communications Coordinator.  My husband Brad and I have been married for over ten years and are the proud parents of two active boys, Anderson (7) and Christian (4). Two of the most important reasons my husband and I chose to make our home in Lockport ten years ago was District 33c’s reputation for having an outstanding school system and strong community ties. I thrilled to be able to contribute more to support our school and community at this time by serving as the PTO Communications Coordinator. 
         I have a bachelor of arts degree in Communications and Public Relations from Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. I also hold a post-graduate Leadership Certificate as well as  PHR and SHRM (human resource) certificates, which I earned in 2016.  My work experience has been largely concentrated in the corporate world. I held various executive positions within the Target Corporation for over ten years, focusing on operations, organizational development, and human resources.  Two years ago, I made the difficult decision to leave my corporate position in order to stay at home with my children, but I can honestly say that it is a decision about which I have no regrets.  Currently, I enjoy volunteering in both Schilling and Butler school classrooms as part of the Art Appreciation program as well as participating in PTO events.  Among my favorite pastimes, I enjoy running half-marathons, cooking, traveling, and of course, spending time with my family. 
            Once again, I am so very honored to serve you as the Butler PTO Communications Coordinator. I am a true believer in the importance of having a quality educational system and I will contribute to that effort by using my skills and background to provide effective and seamless communication.

Denise Yaeger, Staff Liaison 

My name is Denise Yaeger and I am the Butler PTO Staff Liaison.   I have worked at Butler School for over 14 years and have volunteered with the PTO each year.   I have been the Media Center Assistant for the past twelve years, and was the 2nd grade reading aide before that.  I throughly enjoy my job and feel that the Butler staff, students and their families are simply the best! One of my favorite memories at Butler is when we do “Ghoul School” in the library for the students! Every year the students look forward to it, and it brings me great joy to see the excitement in their faces!

My husband, Keith, and I are the proud parents of five children, all of them adults now.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and reading.
