Bruin Families,

I am thrilled, excited, and honored to serve our Bruin community.  Since last May I have been able to meet with many of our talented, caring staff who ALL have told me that the best thing about Ballou, is the great students and families.  Clearly, the Ballou Way is a culture rich with Persistence, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Excellence.  

Speaking of excellence, our work this year will center on three improvement goal areas:  Equity and Social Justice, College and Career Readiness, and Improved Student Achievement.  If you are interested in being part of our SIP (School Improvement Plan) team that will focus on work in these three areas, I am looking for a parent/guardian from each grade level.  Please email me directly or call the Main Office.  Your voice, your student's voice is vital to our growth and continued success.

Finally,  if you are coming with your student to the August 24th Prep Day, please take a moment to stop and introduce yourself and your student.

Yours for a wonderful year,

Mrs. Lisa Kusche
