InSideOut Initiative from OHSAA

Recently, I had a video shared with me from the Ohio High school Athletic Association regarding a new initiative called the InSideOut Initiative.

As a coach of 14 years at the high school level, I find the InSideOut Initiative a refreshing reminder of the true value of high school athletics.  Below is a link to a video from the OHSAA that outlines the Initiative.

I felt it was information worthy of sharing with our families as our student athletes head to the high school.

You are invited to the Nov. 3rd PTO meeting!

The Cloverleaf Middle School PTO will be holding its next meeting on November 30th at 3:30 in the middle school Media Center.

The PTO has several ways for parents to get involved!  The PTO has monthly meetings where you can learn details of the activities that support our school. The following link provides future meeting dates and contact information. 

The PTO does many things to enhance the educational experiences and social opportunities for our students.  The goal of the PTO is to grow in membership and participation, so we can add new and creative events that support our middle school students.


All parents and grandparents are automatically members and we would love to see new (and returning!)  faces and fresh ideas at our next meeting on November 30th at 3:30 pm.  If you are not able to attend meetings and would like to know other ways to be involved please contact us at   -Go Colts!


Cozy and Caring Days!

Cozy and Caring Days

Tis the season to be CARING!  And why not be COZY while doing it?

Emerald Key and Student Council would like to make you aware of a new event that will be taking the place of “Holiday for Others” this year (and hopefully the years to come!).

  • “Cozy and Caring Days” will take place over four Tuesdays in November and December.  Those Tuesdays are:  11/21, 11/28, 12/5, and 12/12.
  • It will be encouraged that staff and students pay at least $1 to wear pajamas/comfy clothes on the aforementioned Tuesdays.
  • The money collected over these four Tuesdays will go directly to families in our district that might need a little extra help around the holidays.
  • Money will be collected by Homeroom teachers and should be counted before EK/StuCo kids come around during IE. (Envelopes or collection boxes will be provided).
    • For every $5 raised in a HR, that HR will receive a Santa, Christmas tree, etc. to place on the classroom door for everyone in the building to see.
  • We will have a Homeroom competition during this event, which will be based on the highest average per student.
    • The winning HR with the highest average per student will be provided with a breakfast buffet of cheesy scrambled eggs, french toast with syrup, bacon and sausage, and milk or juice, courtesy of our kitchen staff.
    • Second and third place will receive donuts.
      • The breakfast/donut party will take place during HR/IE on Friday, December 15th.

More information about this event with be forthcoming.  If you have any questions, please see me or Mrs. Ramey.
