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


    Hi Parents and Students,

    I hope you are all staying healthy during this stressful time. As the district website indicates, there are locations throughout the city to pick up free lunches Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 12 pm. There are also some academic packets that are going to be distributed there.

    Students, I really do miss you already! While the job of a principal can be tiring, children also give me energy. It will be very lonely without all of you every day. Please do the following during this time:


    • READ every day. Do not lose what you have gained. Our STAR scores showed progress in every grade level in both reading and math.

    • See the distric website (under academics) for enrichment packets.

    • Remember: “It’s cool to be kind!” Please don’t do anything on social media that will hurt someone’s feelings.

    • Wash your hands, eat healthy, drink water, exercise, and get plenty of rest.


    I hope to see you soon!


    Mr. Lescher
