The Arkansas Public School Health Services Advisory Committee is asking parents statewide to complete a survey on the health services provided by their child’s public school.

Act 414 sponsored by Representative Andy Mayberry and Senator Joyce Elliott, passed in 2013 to form a task force that looks at student health and health services in Arkansas public schools.  This committee includes 19 members from education and health services backgrounds who will study school health services and needs; and inform the General Assembly so that it can determine the best school health policies and practices for Arkansas school children.  One of the goals is to ensure adequate and appropriate health care workers on site to attend to students.

The committee began working in September and would like to have public input from parents of school-aged children. The committee hopes to get parent feedback to learn how they feel about the health care of their children during school hours.

The survey will be available online from Jan. 6- Jan. 31, 2014. Parents are requested to only complete one survey for their family.  The committee encourages the parent of multiple students to complete the survey referring to the child with the most medical needs. This survey will only take 1-2 minutes to complete. We thank you for your participation.

The survey can be accessed on the website for Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families

Thanks so much for all you do for AR kids!

Grab and Go Breakfast Starts November 18th

We want to make sure all students have an opportunity to get a nutritious start to the day. We know that hectic morning schedules sometimes mean that students may skip breakfast. Pea Ridge High School and Middle School will offer a second breakfast between 1st and 2nd nutritious breakfast ensures that students have the proper fuel their bodies need to learn.

Students may purchase the Grab and Go breakfast for $1.40. For students on free and reduced meals, this breakfast option qualifies for their breakfast meal. If a student qualifies for reduced meals, the price will be $0.30. If a student qualifies for free meals, there will be no cost to the student. Students on free and reduced meals who eat at the traditional time will be charged full price if they eat the Grab and Go Breakfast on the same day.







Middle School Recognition

Dear Principal Terry,

Each year, the Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas creates a report titled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards highlighting the highest-performing schools in Arkansas based on the Benchmark and End-of-Course exams.

We are pleased to announce that Pea Ridge Middle School won a “Most Improved End-of-Course Exam Growth 2007 to 2013” OEP award. These awards are based on the OEP-created “school GPA,” calculated on the basis of the percentage of students that perform at a particular level on the exam (advanced, proficient, basic, and below basic). “Most Improved End-of-Course Exam Growth 2007 to 2013” awards are given to junior high and high schools that have shown the greatest improvement, where the measure of improvement is simply the difference between the ending score and the starting score over the time period indicated. To learn more about how we determined the OEP award winners and to see the full list of award recipients, you can view the entire report here: http://www.officeforeducationpolicy.org/wp-content/uploads/Most-Improved-Schools-End-of-Course-Exams.pdf

We congratulate you on this accomplishment and hope that you will share this good news with teachers, students, and any others who contributed to your school’s success.
