Our school is being recognized again as being outstanding! This time for being one of the highest performing schools junior highs overall in the state of Arkansas!

Actually, we are tied as #15 in the top 20 recognized.

Please follow the notes and link below for more details.

As the school year comes to a close and you celebrate the achievements of your students and staff, the Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas is happy to celebrate SILOAM SPRINGS MIDDLE as one of the highest-performing schools in Arkansas.

SILOAM SPRINGS MIDDLE has been awarded: High Achieving Junior High (Overall). Based on the results of the 2014-15 PARCC assessments, performance is measured by the OEP-created “school GPA.” High Achieving Awards are given to schools with the highest GPA, and Beating the Odds Awards are given to high-achieving schools that serve low-income communities where at least 66% of students are enrolled in the free/reduced lunch program. To learn more about how we determined the OEP award winners and to see the full list of award recipients, you can view the reports here:

Box Tops for Education

 

We are collecting Box Top coupons to raise money for our school. Please submit your collection of box tops to the office or to your advisor.   

Did you know that some local schools raise thousands of dollars for their schools each year, just from clipping and submitting Box Tops?  Box Top coupons are on the packaging of hundreds of participating products that you probably use every day.  All you need to do is cut them off of the box they are on, stick them in a baggie, and send them to school with your child. Thanks for choosing to support our school by collecting Box Tops!
