Ever wonder what goes on during teacher workdays? The answer is "lots of things!" Yesterday, teachers met in Impact Teams which focus on realizing where students currently are and utilizing instructional strategies to move them to the next level. They also met in Leader In Me lighthouse groups to plan ways to implement the Leader in Me habits. Some of our teachers also heard motivational speaker Alex Demczak's message. Alex is a former SEC quarterback for the Missouri Tigers. He is also an inspiring communicator who challenges organizations to maximize their potential and make a difference. He spoke to our teachers about the power of positive of leadership and the power of a positive team. As you can see, teacher workdays are packed full of meetings and activities we use to help move Clever Schools forward and remain #bluejaystrong!
Our district is continuing to implement Leader in Me for grades K-8. Leader in Me (LIM) is a program developed to empower students with leadership and life skills. LIM believes that each child has unique strengths and has the ability to be a leader. The flyer below shows an overview of the 7 Habits. Our goal is to bridge the gap between home, school, and community as we continue this journey. Ask your students about Leader in Me!
Mark your calendars and save the date! The Clever High School Graduation Ceremony will take place Monday, May 16th, at Drury's O'Reilly Family Event Center. See the flyer for more information. More details will be shared closer to graduation.

We are so proud of Clever senior Lanie King! Lanie has earned her State FFA Degree!

Way to go, Lanie!!
This week is teacher appreciation week. Our teachers work hard every single day--not because it's their job, but because they love their students. They don't just come to work, they show up in ways that impact students' lives for years to come. Take a minute this week to send an email, write a note, or give a fist bump to your child's teacher. Help us remind them how appreciated they are!
Clever School District is not short on talented students! Recently, Clever sophomore Ambryah Moore received 3rd place in the Congressional Art Contest. This is a large contest that includes the whole 7th Congressional District, which spans from Joplin to Springfield. Ambryah's entry (entitled "Eye") is amazing, and we are so proud of her! Congratulations, Ambryah!
Monday, May 3, is a make up day. School will be in session!

February 26, 2021 Clever Family First of all, we’d like to send a huge thank you to our teachers and students who had to shift to virtual instruction this week. We’d also like to thank K-8 parents and students for adjusting their bus pick up times. Your flexibility has been greatly appreciated! Bus routes will return mostly to normal beginning Tuesday. All buses except Bus 3 will be back to normal routine. Bus 3 stops will stay at the same time they were this week. This will be the new route times for Bus 3. All riders must be at their stop waiting five minutes before bus time. Please do not wait for the bus to arrive before coming to the bus stop. This allows our buses to stay on time and not block traffic. If you have any questions regarding bus routes, please email Teresa Butler, Transportation Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking forward to welcoming high school students back to the classroom Tuesday (March 2). Things might look a little different for a while, but we are ready for seated instruction to resume. The building has felt very empty without students in the classrooms and hallways! Please remember all AMI assignments must be completed and turned in. Please continue to work on these assignments over the weekend. Missing assignments will result in mandatory tutoring or Saturday School. If you have any questions regarding high school AMI or return to seated, please contact Mr. Casey at email@example.com.
Due to the possibility of hazardous road conditions, The Clever R-V School District will not be in session today.
