Updated Pay to Participate Fees for 2017-2018

Good afternoon!  I want to share exciting news about recent changes that have been made to our pay to participate fees for athletics and band for the 2017-2018 school year.  

  • Middle School participation fees will decrease from $125.00 to $85.00 per activity.  
  • Students who qualify for the free lunch program will have no cost to participate and students who qualify for the reduced lunch program will have a cost of $11.00.

Students who are currently enrolled in the free or reduced lunch program for the 2016-2017 school year have a 30 day grace period to start the 2017-2018 school year that will allow the reduced participation rates for the upcoming fall season.  

If you are not currently on the free or reduced lunch program for the 2016-2017 school year and you believe there is a possibility you could qualify, you must submit an application no later than May 31st in order for your participation fees to be impacted for next fall.  Otherwise, you will be required to pay full cost for a fall activity.

30 days into the 2017-2018 school year everyone will need to submit new free or reduced lunch applications for fees to be impacted for the winter and spring seasons.   

To apply for the free or reduced lunch program, visit the following link https://cloverleaf.rocketscanapps.com/ .  

We are very excited for the opportunities this will allow for our students!

Last day of School Early Release (May 25th)

This communication is to inform families that we will maintain our tradition of releasing students two hours early on the last day of school, which is May 25th this year.  Students will be released at 12:35 rather than our typical time of 2:35.  I wanted to share this information so parents would have time to make any necessary arrangements.

Dress Code Reminder

With the weather turning to summer (sunny skies and warmer temperatures), I reminded our students today of our dress code expectations that are outlined in the Student code of conduct.  The purpose of the reminder is to be proactive.  I want to end the school year on a positive note, and avoid the inconvenience to parents of bringing their child a change of clothes.  I have included the dress code below for parents to review.  Thank you for your support with this matter!

Pennies for Patients Campaign to end Blood Cancer

Hi, Families!

This year’s Pennies for Patients campaign, led by Student Council, will run from May 1st – May 12th.  We hope that students can bring money into their homerooms for a friendly competition, but if donating online works better for you, please follow this link to do so!  http://events.lls.org/pages/noh/CloverleafMiddleSchool-2017

Pennies for Patients makes an even bigger difference than you may think.

If you don’t know someone with a blood cancer, you probably know someone who has battled another form of cancer. More than 40% of new cancer therapies approved by the FDA between 2000 and 2015 were first approved for blood cancer patients but now help others as well. Working together on our Pennies for Patients campaign, we can turn our spare change into real help for real people!

If you have questions about Pennies for Patients, contact Erin Sholtis, Student Council advisor, or visit LLS.org. Thanks to families like yours, we are that much closer to finding a cure for blood cancers.
