  • Parents and guardians,


    We are reaching out to you today to let you know that it is time to register your student for summer learning.  This year, Camp SLPS will be held from Monday, June 5th through Friday, June 30th at sites across Saint Louis Public Schools. Camp SLPS is open to all students currently enrolled in Pre-K (P4) through 12th grade and will include academic learning, enrichment opportunities, field trips, and much more. We are gearing up early so that our families have time to make their summer plans and to ensure we encourage each student to participate.


    Students from our school will attend Carnahan this summer. The school day runs from 7:50 AM to 1:20 PM. Transportation, breakfast and lunch are provided.


    Registration for Camp SLPS 2023 is now online at https://www.slps.org/summer. If you need assistance completing the registration form, please contact us at (314) 352-1043.  

    If no assistance is needed and you are interested, make sure the registration is completed by March 31st in order to guarantee transportation for your child.


    Look for more information about Camp SLPS from your student’s site leader and online at https://www.slps.org/summer.


    Thank You!

Principal's Corner

    Welcome to the Busch Middle School of Character Principal's Corner

    July 22, 2022

    Hello Busch Families,

    I hope you are having a wonderful summer! Here are a few upcoming dates I would like to bring to your attention:

    August 17th         New Student Orientation

    August 22nd        First Day of School

    September 15th  Back to School Bash

    If you are new to Busch, we will have all the necessary forms for you to fill out at New School Orientation.

    As we get closer to the beginning of school, it will be helpful to start getting our students into healthy routines, such as reading every day for at least 20 minutes at home.

    Our school’s Core Values are Respect, Responsibility, Self-Control, Determination and Honesty. You can talk to your child about reading and how it relates to the core values of Responsibility, Self-Control and Determination.

    It is my goal this year to improve communication with families, so please look out for e-mails from the school for information on upcoming events.

    See you soon!

    Robert Lescher
