With today being the last day of classes for students, I want to THANK YOU for making it a GREAT year! The Class of 2018 made their mark as Freshman and are soon on route to 10th grade.
With many individual and team honors, this amazing group of young men and women have brought us excitement, laughter and even a few happy tears. This class has such talent: academic, athletic and in the fine arts. I am SO PROUD of all they have accomplished in such a short time.
I look forward to seeing you transition to sophomore year and know you are ready. I will miss you, but I think you know where you can find me! ;)
Have a wonderful summer; Rest, READ, try something new!
See you next Fall!

Please see listing for room assignments for the ASPIRE test tomorrow:
Tomorrow marks an important day for EHS Freshmen; we are testing all 9th graders using the ASPIRE test, developed through ACT. This test is administered to provide data regarding a student's proximity to ACT benchmarks. It is directly aligned with ACT and is an important, 1st step on your child's path to college choice.
This data provides specific feedback regarding areas of challenge, as well as accelerated learning. This data is used in part, to determine what courses are appropriate to support individual student learning.
In the past, 8th grade students took the Explore test, which provided similar data. ACT discontinued this test and replaced it with ASPIRE taken during 9th grade. This data is statistically more reliable for comparison to ACT benchmarks, and therefore provides a more accurate reflection of academic progress.
If you have any questions, please let us know.
I am so proud of the Students and Staff at Eureka! We have been named a TOP School in Missouri, AGAIN! We are #8 and working to improve, everyday!
Here's the current listing of Missouri's schools.
This is how the rankings are determined.
Keep up the great work!!!
During each spring, I head to LSMS and WMS to meet and visit with the incoming class. This year, I am welcoming the CLASS OF 2019!!!
I am so excited to meet them and share how AWESOEM EHS is! I will post a few pics here after both school visits - check back to see smiling faces!
If you consider yourself an informed citizen, you are aware of a national effort to improve STEM Education throughout the United States. President Obama asked public educators to make improvements in STEM education so that America’s students are able to compete in the global community.
Across the U.S., districts are answering that call to enable all students to learn deeply and think critically in science and math. As Rockwood works to improve programs supporting STEM education, we are asking our community to help us, help our kids.
Hear our Superintendent, Dr. Eric Knost speak to this issue and how PROP 4 will support the STEM initiative by redesigning learning environments in science. http://tinyurl.com/pu7ljd3
Coming back to classes and routine after a break can be challenging. Remember to do the basic things to get back into the swing of school.
Return to your regular sleep and wake times, eat breakfast, drink plenty of water and get exercise regularly. Following the basics is a good way to keep up with your responsibilities.
If you are currently in Spring Sports, it is essential that you manage your time well so you are able keep up with the demands of school, family and athletics.
