Welcome to

Charles Bursch School!


August, 2014


Dear Bursch Parent, Guardian, and Supporter,


Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year! We began school On August 11, 2014 and I am seeing great things throughout the Bursch Campus. Thank you for sending your child each day in their uniform. I am proud to see so many scholars each day. I believe that if a student looks like a scholar, he or she will act like a scholar.


We are excited to be a No Excuses University and we will continue our college awareness program. We believe that every student at Bursch School can go to college. Soon you will be receiving a letter from your child’s teacher, announcing their chosen university and the opportunity to purchase a T-shirt with the university’s logo.


This year we will again be offering parent workshops, volunteer opportunities, coffee with the principal, and other opportunities for you to be involved at Bursch School. Your involvement increases your child’s achievement. Soon we will offer a volunteer training meeting. We hope to see you on campus on a regular basis. Please watch for the flier announcing the meeting or you can call Angelica Padilla at, our Community/School Home Liaison at 626-338-4319


Lastly, I would like you to be aware of the following dates:

  • Thursday - August 28, 2014 - Back-t0-School Night - Classroom Visits - 5:00 – 6:00 PM

  • Friday - August 29, 2014 - School Holiday/Staff Development Day -  No School

  • Monday - September 1. 2014 - Labor Day - No School


We look forward to a great school year and we hope to see you soon.
