    Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year

    Phần thưởng đổi thưởng trò chơi 2019We are so excited that you have chosen SLPS and Busch Middle School of Character. We are committed to providing excellent education and support to our students and their families. We are beginning our year with 100% virtual learning, which will continue through the end of first quarter (October 16). SLPS will re-evaluate at that time to determine if it is safe for us to return to our school building for classes (we are following health department guidelines). 

    Phần thưởng đổi thưởng trò chơi 2019Virtual learning is a lot like a normal day at Busch. Students have Character Connection at 8:15 AM (this is a 15-minute Advisory time where students connect in a small group with a teacher and kids in all grade levels). After Character Connection, students "travel" from class to class online, experiencing their regular core content classes, as well as related arts like music, art, and physical education. After classes, our school connects for a daily meeting with our principal until 3:12 PM. 

    Phần thưởng đổi thưởng trò chơi 2019If students need assistance at any time, they are encouraged to e-mail their teachers or send them a chat in Teams. Parents/guardians, we are here for you too. Click here to find a list of faculty members and their contact information.

    Virtual Learning Terminology

    Zoom Meetings-Phần thưởng đổi thưởng trò chơi 2019 You've probably heard this term used a lot during the COVID pandemic. While some teachers may occasionally use Zoom, our school is mostly using Microsoft Team Meetings. These meetings are a lot like Zoom meetings, and usually when your Busch student uses the term "Zoom meeting", they probably mean a Microsoft Teams Meeting. A Teams meeting is just another way to say "virtual class time" where students meet with their teachers over a webcam.

    Synchronous Learning- Our school is using synchronous learning this quarter, which means that students meet with their teachers in real-time, live, virtual classes.

    Asynchronous Learning- Asynchronous learning is the practice work or homework your student does independently. Most asynchronous work this quarter will occur during normal class times, and teachers will be available during this time to assist students and answer questions.

    TeamsPhần thưởng đổi thưởng trò chơi 2019- Microsoft Teams is the program/app where students have their daily classes and turn in assignments.

    OutlookPhần thưởng đổi thưởng trò chơi 2019- Outlook is the program/app where students send and receive e-mail.

    Tyler SIS 360- This is an online portal where parents/students can view records like attendance and grades. Parents/guardians can contact the school to sign up for access to this valuable portal.

    ChatPhần thưởng đổi thưởng trò chơi 2019- Chat is a section on Microsoft Teams where students can send instant messages to their teachers and ask questions. To access Chat, open the Teams app and click on the Chat button at the bottom or left side of the screen. Use the search toolbar at the top to find the name of the teacher you want to chat with.



    phone If you have any questions or concerns during virtual learning, please text our principal, Mr. Lescher, at 314.250.1542 with your name, the name of your student, and a number on which you can be reached, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.


Principal's Corner

  • r lescher


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

    Hi Busch Families,
    We survived the first week! Please be patient with us as we are learning new skills. I know the teachers are working very hard and planning new and exciting lessons. Students, please join us at the end of the day for daily announcements, our attendance is rather low, but it will serve as a time for important information. We try and make it fun too. If you are suffering from "Screen Time Fatigue" try going old school. You can still get books from the library, although they have some new regulations, but a good book with real pages is a much different experience than reading on a computerr or I pad. Speaking of I pads, remember not to try to look anything up innapropriate on your device. It gets flagged and sent to the Deputy Superintendent of Technology. Hope you had a great holiday                                                      weekend!-Mr. Lescher
