- Social and Recreational Services
- Immigration Services
- And much more.....!!!
Burbank Middle School has its very own Wraparound Services Specialist.
Her name is Lis O'Sullivan, and she is ready to assist our parents and community. She is bilingual and orginally from Paraguay. She is also a certified teacher and counselor with experience in customer service, container logistics and human resources. Ms. O'Sullivan is completely vested in the services that the Wraparound Program provides because she grew up poor. She knows from experience the impact that having resources available has on a student's development. She is committed to being a positive role model for our students and is passionate about helping them achieve their personal and academic goals.
We are very fortunate to have Ms. O'Sullivan with us at Burbank. This is her contact information:
