  • Welcome Eagles - Fall 2016

    I hope you are having a wonderful summer! It is already August and our first day of school is September 7th at 8:45am. Our floors are waxed and we are preparing! 6th grade students will kick off the year with a morning orientation on September 7th. Parents are welcome to walk students to the cafeteria for name tags and then to the auditorium. While 6th graders get oriented, returning 7th and 8th grade students will reconnect with their peers in homeroom and get ready to begin the year. New 7th and 8th graders will have a special orientation—more information will be available soon.
    ~ Principal Sterk

While it is not mandatory for students to attend, it is highly encouraged.

  • Summer Reading for Incoming Eighth Graders

    It is vitally important as you embark on your final year of middle school that you continue to increase your reading stamina. Your 8th grade English department will help ensure you do not slide backwards in your reading skills over the summer by requiring you to complete a summer reading activity. We are asking that you read at least two of the books and have a conversation with a family member about that book.

    The books for you to choose from are the Eagles Read selections for 2016-2017 school year and a book to prepare you for social studies this year. Spectrum students and students looking for a challenge must read two books from the Eagles Read list and one book from the list on the second page of the paper below (THREE total books).

Parents and Guardians - Student safety is our top priority, and you can help us keep students safe by keeping these things in mind as you drop off and pick up your child at Eckstein:

  • Drive SLOWLY and USE EXTRA CAUTION whenever driving near the school
  • Do NOT drop off or pick up in the bus zone in front of Eckstein - Remind your student to cross the street at the crosswalk in front of the school, not at the corner of 30th & 75th where visibility is poor

Thank you for your cooperation in creating a safe environment for all of our kids!
