EUREKA SPRINGS MIDDLE SCHOOL GRADES 5-8 Dear Students and Parents: WELCOME to the new 2006-2007 school year! The administration and staff are excited to be a part of your child’s education. We are here to assist the students in making academic progress that will help them meet their future goals. Middle school students have unique needs. They are experiencing significant social, emotional and physical growth that may influence their feelings, behaviors and progress.
Your student will be provided with clear expectations and guidance so that they will get the most benefit from their school experience. We need good communication, cooperation and coordination between the school and home in order to make this a successful year for your child. Please take time to read the Student Handbook with your child. Several new laws have been passed that are important for you and the student to be aware of. Appropriate student behavior is expected and is necessary for the student to participate in the learning process. It is impossible to write down every rule; therefore, in the event an occasion occurs where no rule in this handbook applies, it becomes my responsibility to make decisions about these situations.
Both parent and student signatures are required for student enrollment in Eureka Springs Middle School. The signature page and yearly update forms with emergency contact information must be signed and returned before the student will be allowed to attend class. I have high expectations for your student’s success this school year, and look forward to working with you.

About Our School
Eureka Springs Elementary School is a one-story painted concrete block structure which is situated on 24 acres in a low-traffic area of town. Entering the building at the main entrance, one encounters a wide lobby with a welcoming feeling.
Three major additions, a special services education core, a primary wing, and a District Central Office center, have enabled this small school to keep amenities close at hand. In 1986, a state-of -the art track was built at this location. The elementary school benefits from this by its use for physical education classes, sports and after school activities. The school is also in close proximity to the Middle School which is located next door.
We owe a debt of gratitude to our generous donors, every room in the school now has Internet capability and in addition, there is a well-equipped computer lab centrally located. Also available are a library and media center, a speech area, a physical therapy room, a conference room , a cafeteria and an office core which includes a nurse's station, a counselors office, a bookstore and offices.
The school has a completely fenced playground with several large play units and a concrete area with basketball goals.
The newest addition to our school property is a bus barn that has been built adjacent to the Elementary.
