Dear Euclid Middle School Parents and Community,


On behalf of the staff, I would like to welcome you to the 2023-24 school year. I am Amanda Hurley and I am honored to serve as principal of Euclid Middle School. This year will bring growth and achievement to all of our students as we embark upon new adventures and learning. 


Middle school education is unique and exhilarating. Young adolescent students require academic programming and opportunities that are different from other levels of education. At Euclid, we provide for these unique needs through academic and affective support systems. By meeting students where they are and developing their strengths, while supporting areas of academic and social/emotional needs, all students grow and find success. To put this belief into action, Euclid is divided into core teams, thus creating smaller learning communities within a larger school setting. Teaming allows students to build relationships with peers and teachers, which as research shows assists in the development of community and increases student learning. Additionally, Euclid offers a robust and developmentally appropriate electives/exploratory program. These components align with a true middle school model and support the varying needs of young learners.


Euclid Middle School is a safe, inclusive environment where students grow, learn, and thrive. Our Mission Statement exemplifies what we believe about middle level education:


Euclid Middle School, in partnership with families and the community, will provide every student with a comprehensive education focused on engaging learning experiences, character development, and leadership skills. All students will be challenged to achieve their greatest potential, within a positive, safe, and nurturing environment.


We are thrilled to welcome a new class of enthusiastic 6th grade students to our school and transition the 7th and 8th grade students to a new grade level. To begin the year in a positive way, we offer WEB, “Where Everybody Belongs.” This is a middle school orientation and transition program that welcomes 6th graders, making them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their middle school experience. We also explore the 4 Core Values of Challenge, Community, Choice, and Character through the Every Student a Leader program. This program provides opportunities for student choice, service projects and outreach opportunities. The positive community and culture at Euclid Middle School is developed using the Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) program, called Be REAL (Be Respectful, Excellent, Accepting and a Leader). It is a proactive approach to establish behavioral supports needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success. Through Be REAL, positive behavior is recognized and rewarded on teams and throughout the school community.


The 2023-24 school year will present many exciting opportunities for us to work collaboratively as a community while striving for excellence. It is well known that students thrive when families are actively involved in the educational experience. The partnership between home and school is an integral part of student success in growth and achievement. The Euclid staff is dedicated to building connections and relationships that assist us in maintaining a community atmosphere that values and supports the unique needs of each student.


Euclid Middle School is a place of opportunity, growth, and learning for all. Our staff is committed to nurturing the mind and the heart of every student while making school relevant and rewarding. We encourage every student to get involved in their classes and the many extra-curricular activities we offer. We also encourage every family to also get involved in the many opportunities that will arise throughout the year. I look forward to meeting you in person and building a partnership that supports our students. Please contact me at ahurley[at]lps.k12.co[dot]us or at 303-347-7800 if I can be of assistance.

Amanda Hurley, Principal
