Teacher Leader of the Month


Mr. Heflin is a very selfless person and ALWAYS puts the kids first. He is not just the "Focus Room" teacher, but he is THE Focus Room Guru! He will take any kid who needs help with a test or homework, he will help a student in ISS still be successful, and he will stay after school to tutor any student who needs help. He also helps all the teachers with anything we may need. He checks on us and always puts himself last! He is a great asset to Clever Middle School!

Ryan has become such a lucrative part of the Clever family since joining our team, and we could not do what we do without him!

Archery Team Success!

This year's Middle School Archery team qualified for Nationals scoring over 3,000 team points at the State Competition. This was their best performance of the season. We will host a Virtual Event with Willard Public Schools April 24th in the South Gym. This event will be streamed along with thousands of other schools from around the country.

Bluejays@Home/Quarantine Learning Expectations

In the situation where your child is placed on quarantine, we ask that they follow their appropriate grade level schedule below. This can be found in the student Canvas portal. Parents will receive an email from the school providing the details outlining the specific expectations for learning from home.

Tutoring Options

Tutoring options are available both before and after school on a regular basis. Please contact your child’s teacher for more information and availability.

Periodically, we will offer Saturday tutoring sessions from 8-11. Information will be sent to parents when the next Saturday tutoring session is available.
