While on campus today, board member Rachel Simons joined Dr. Breeden and SRO Bouldin in placing some "Do Not Prop" reminder stickers on school entrance doors. These stickers are being placed to remind employees, students and visitors not to prop doors and to close doors they see propped open. This simple step is essential to keeping facilities secure.

You may notice a new face hanging out at the elemimddle campus. Clever School District is welcoming a new SRO! Sergeant Kainon Bouldin will be filling this position until a permanent replacement is hired. Sergeant Bouldin has worked for the City of Clever Police Department since May of 2019, and was promoted to the rank of sergeant in 2021. Here is some more information Sergeant Bouldin shared with us: "I volunteered to fill the SRO position on a temporary basis so the school would have a consistent name and face, while we work at finding a highly qualified and motivated replacement for Officer Strodtman. I am very excited to get to know the students and staff. Taking this time to build great relationships will only help provide better safety and services to our community. Prior to coming to the City of Clever, I carried a commission with both Greene and Christian County Sheriff's Offices. In addition, I am a Staff Sergeant in the US Army Reserves, as a Military Police Officer. I began my law enforcement career in November of 2008, graduating from the Drury University Law Enforcement Academy. I am currently working towards my Bachelor's in Criminal Justice from Drury University. After completion, I will be pursuing my Master's with Lincoln University." We are excited to work with Sergeant Bouldin, and we know he'll be a great addition to the campus!

Yesterday, Clever School District hosted a Special Olympics track meet, and it was an amazing event! Nine area schools participated in events including shotput, javelin throwing, relay races, and many more. The spirit and joy of the event was evident on the faces of athletes, organizers, and spectators. We are #bluejayproud of our Clever participants and all the athletes. A huge shoutout as well to the Clever Police Department and First Responders! Besides being there to handle any potential emergencies, they were on hand to present the awards to the athletes. We are so grateful and suspect by the smiles on their faces, they enjoyed it as well. This full-day event takes a tremendous amount of planning and logistical maneuvering. Our sponsors, admin, faculty and students worked countless hours to make sure this day was a success, and their efforts were rewarded by the smiles everywhere. In particular, our Leadership Class worked extremely hard planning and executing the entire event. These students are to be commended on a job very well done! Clever Special Services Director Lyle Barber commented "Our student leadership team was phenomenal!" Thank you to everyone who worked to make this event happen. It was a good day to be a Bluejay! #bluejaystrong
