Principal's Corner

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

    Hello Busch Families,
    The 2018-2019 school year is going to be a historic school year. This is because we are reviewing our school’s CORE VALUES to determine if we need to keep them or select other values. It may not sound like a big deal, but these five words define the school and impact every lesson teachers prepare and every conversation in which students and staff engage. Students, staff and parents will be involved in the process. Currently, our five CORE VALUES are RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, SELF-CONTROL, DETERMINATION, and HONESTY.
    In other news, our staff continues to educate ourselves and grow. This year our big push is to become more Culturally Responsive Educators. We will also begin a new partnership with Alive and Well which will help us better serve students who have experienced trauma. In addition, we will continue our journey in becoming a therapeutic and nurturing staff.
    I look forward to working with you and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the students and families of Busch.
