Assistant Principal's Corner

Assistant Principal’s Corner

A message from Mrs. Traver

I am so thankful to serve as your new Assistant Principal! Over the past couple months it has been a great transition from being a math teacher to being in administration. As you know most of my job is discipline and with a past in mathematics I wanted to present some data on discipline. Below is a chart that outlines referrals from August and September.

As you can see from the chart on the right the largest percentage of referrals comes from cell phone violations. I wanted to thank all students for adhering to our cell phone policy at CHS, which is to have them away during all instructional time. As a reminder, the second offense on the cell phone must be picked up by a parent or guardian. I look forward to the number of referrals from September going down through October. If you have any questions regarding discipline please do not hesitate to contact me at rtraver@clioschools.org or at 810-591-1381.

The counseling department runs a few different student groups. We ask students to join the groups based upon the way the students answered questions on our start of year survey and on staff recommendation. We can also take parent recommendations. So, if you think your student could benefit from a grief group, anxiety coping skills group, or a time management skills groups, please contact the counseling secretary at (810) 591-1367 to let her know or contact your student's counselor. We are planning to start these groups at the beginning of November, so please let us know soon. Last names A-K: Mrs. Hall (810) 591-1385 or Last names L-Z: Mrs. Minore (810) 591-1365

The counselors have started meeting with seniors to talk to them about their post-graduation plans. Our goal is to make sure they know how to achieve those plans regardless of what they might be.

Applications for 7th hour classes were sent home to those students who are missing a required class or are short in credits. If you have questions about why your student got a letter, please contact their counselor. Students must be passing all 6 of their current classes in order to take a 7th hour class. 7th hour has open enrollment, as soon as students are passing all of their classes, they can start 7th hour. There is no deadline to get started.

If you have questions about any of the above information please contact our office secretary Mrs. Collar at (810) 591-1367 or your student's counselor directly:

last names A-K: Mrs. Hall (810) 591-1385 or last names L-Z: Mrs. Minore (810) 591-1365

Samantha Jarbou Represents Clio in New York at the NFTE Program

What is the NFTE? The Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship. An organization that brings the power of entrepreneurship to young people. https://www.nfte.com/

Samantha initially won a pitch competition here at CHS and then qualified to go to New York after winning the GISD-wide event. She joined 40 other entrepreneurs in New York that came from all over the country to show off their products and services.

Samantha's idea and product, the Vestpack, is aimed at helping students avoid the strain of a normal backpack while allowing an efficient way to store your typical "student" supplies. She presented to multiple judges at the event and did well. Although she did not win, Samantha said that she certainly felt the experience helped boost her excitement to be an entrepreneur.

After high school, Samantha will likely attend U of M Flint or even has aspirations to attend Harvard. She has great interest in combining a medical and business degree to further her chances to be a successful entrepreneur.

We are proud of you, Samantha! We will be watching when your work changes the world for the better!
