EUREKA- After four years Winship Middle School will reopen its doors on Monday in Eureka. In an effort to cut $2 million from the budget the school closed down in 2009, but with help from the community the school is now able to reopen. The school will have sixth and seventh grade students starting in the fall and an eighth grade class will be added the following year. 
 
Over the past five weeks hundreds of volunteers have been cleaning up the campus. Asphalt was resurfaced and the entire field was re-seeded along with a new irrigation system. The exterior was repainted and new trashcans were donated as well. Officials said the school is valued at over $400,000 and on Monday the public is invited to the grand re-opening ceremony at 2:30 p.m. with Congressman Huffman.
