Cloverleaf Middle School will be hosting Winter conferences for parents on January 23rd from 4:00-8:00 PM. As has been done in previous years, parents will use the following link to schedule a conference time.
Unlike Fall conferences that are student led, Winter conferences are one on one meetings between the parent and the teacher. Please reach out to your child’s teacher with additional questions.
When you click on the link to schedule a conference, additional details about the evening will be provided.

Our school is participating in a community service-learning program called American Heart Challenge to benefit the American Heart Association. For the next month (1/14-2/14), students are challenged to do one of the following: 1) Switch from sugary drinks to water, 2) Exercise for 1 hour every day during the challenge, or 3) Say no to smoking or vaping. We want to help our students reach out to family and friends to spread awareness about heart disease and stroke, while raising vital funds for heart health research.
To get started: go to https://www2.heart.org/site/SPageNavigator/ahc_resources_search.html, search for Cloverleaf Middle School and select Sign Up to join our team. On the website, students can register, choose their challenge for the month, create their own web page for the program. They will then personalize their page on why heart health is important and how supporting the American Heart Association can help save lives. Each student can email or text their web page as a secure link to family and friends asking for their support during the Challenge, which ends on February 14th. Additionally, our school is eligible to receive certificates for free PE equipment from the American Heart Association, as well as the ability to apply for grants for participating in the American Heart Challenge.
Over the winter break, one of our Cloverleaf Middle School students, Isabel Kirby, encountered a significant health issue. Her story is located at the following Meal Train link. The Meal Train link provides details of Isabel’s story and updates on her progress. It also provides the opportunity for the community to support the family during this difficult time by providing a home cooked meal for them.
Isabel has a long road ahead of her, but she is a very strong young lady with a great attitude and spirit about her. With that said, even the strongest people need the support of others. Please keep her family in your thoughts, and consider assisting them in any way you can.
After I shared the original post above, Channel 5 News shared Isabel’s story on their evening news cast. Visit the link below to view the story.
Meet Missy Henderson, she is a Paraprofessional. She has worked for Cloverleaf for nine years and she assists the Middle School Drama Club Adviser. She previously held a Property/Casualty Insurance License with the State of Ohio. She loves working at Cloverleaf because of the students. She was thrilled to become a part of the Cloverleaf Schools staff. Although, the staff at our school work together to provide our students with an education that will propel them to high school, she also tries to understand and learn from the students while they are here at CMS. Missy chose education because Children are our future. She has worked outside of the school system and is familiar with the demands, expectations and budgets involved in the aspects of many types of businesses and occupations. She wants to be part of a school staff who considers what is best for each and every child and that keeps that their first priority.
Meet Julie Gunkelman, she is an eighth grade mathematics teacher. She has been with Cloverleaf for twenty-one years. She graduated from Buckeye High school and went to college at Bowling Green University and Marygrove. She has four children, one dog, and lots of cows. Julie is married to a 5th generation dairy farmer and has to take care of the calves every morning before school. Julie loves working at Cloverleaf because she enjoys all the students and staff and loves the greetings and the family atmosphere. She chose education because she had some awesome math teachers in high school, who helped her fall in love with the beauty of math and wants to share that with others.
