With reconstruction of Butler Elementary at the halfway mark, teachers were recently given a sneak preview of the building – and their enthusiasm was palpable. “Look at that view!” exclaimed 5th grade dual immersion teacher Kim Cope, catching a first glimpse out the window of her spacious new classroom.  Of the building’s remarkable features, most remarkable of all are its uninterrupted, 360-degree views of the mountain-rimmed Salt Lake valley. West-facing classrooms look out upon the Oquirrh range, and east-facing rooms offer a close-up of the Wasatch. Look north and it’s possible to spot Mt. Olympus. Gaze south and see just
