News and Notes from Clever 6-8 Middle School

A Message from the Principal

This year at Clever 6-8 Middle School we will be making the collective agreement to follow three rules. These rules are “Be Kind”, “Be Safe”, and “Be Responsible”. Throughout the school year, students and staff will be challenged in many different ways and it is the hope that every individual connected to CMS implements these collective agreements into their daily actions.

New for the 2019-2020 school year, parents can keep up with what is going on by liking the Clever Schools 6-8 Facebook page. Parents and students can also stay informed by subscribing to Remind, a one-way text messaging service. To join (if you have not already joined in the past), send the text @clevms6-8 to 81010 or download the mobile REMIND app and search for the @cleverms6-8 class. We will use these platforms to provide important information and share photos to help tell our story.

I look forward to another year or learning and growth for the students of Clever. I encourage you to stay involved in your child's education and contact the school if you have any questions.

Mr. Justin Sullivan

Attendance Spotlight

Congratulations to our 6th graders on having the best attendance for August! We will continue to focus our efforts on attendance throughout the school year. We appreciate the support from our families at home with helping us meet our attendance goals.

Curriculum Focus - Math

  • We are excited to be integrating technology into classroom and continue to challenge our students. Several of our 8th grade EleMiddle students are participating in Mr. Garman's Integrated I class at the High School through the use of Canvas, Google Hangouts and a swivel camera. Thanks to the creativity of our teachers and administrators, we are able to open the door of one Clever High School classroom to a few of our hardworking EleMiddle School students!

Exploratory Wheel Spotlight

Students in Ms. Kuhl's photography exploratory class are learning to edit photos and develop online portfolios. As you can see from the photos below they have been focusing on outdoor still images. Students are excited about this opportunity and we are looking forward to see what else they can produce.
