CMS Grab N’ Go Pantry

Cloverleaf Middle School’s Grab N’ Go is still up and running this year.  This resource, in room 312 at the top of the ramp, is aimed at making sure the basic needs of every student are met.  The Grab N’ Go provides students with access to school supplies, clothing, personal hygiene products, and non-perishable foods.  

The Grab N’ Go is open throughout the school day and anytime the building is open.  Students may gather resources from the Grab N’ Go room to be used during the school day or for use at home.  

How do students access the room?  Students are permitted to visit Grab N’ Go before homeroom, between classes, after school, on the way to the bus, etc.  Students do not need to seek permission to pick up items from the Grab N’ Go. This will operate on the honor system. We ask that students take what they need. 

If a student selects items for home use, they should secure the items in their book bag during the day.  Small grocery bags are available in the Grab N’ Go room for students to carry items home.

If you have questions, feel free to email Mrs. Sholtis at

Perfect Attendance School Activity Pass

Each year students at CMS who have had perfect attendance for the previous year are issued a school activity pass that gives them free admittance to all athletic events, plays, etc… With attendance at all school events being limited to families this year, the decision has been made to not distribute passes to students for the 2020-2021 school year.

Instead, students will receive their school activity pass for their perfect attendance from the 2019-2020 school year during the 2021-2022 school year.

With the concern of COVID-19, we do not want to encourage students to attend school if they do not feel well. So, this year we will be looking for other opportunities for students to earn a school activity pass that will be issued during the 2021-2022 school year.

CMS Student Council: Socktober Drive

Student Council will host our Socktober drive from October 12th – October 16th.  Socktober is a national movement where socks are collected and donated to local needy/homeless before the cold weather begins.  The socks collected will be given to the Lodi Family Center and the Battered Women’s Shelter.  Any donated socks should be new, in their original packaging, and can be any size and gender.  We collected 1,350 pairs of socks last year and are hoping to beat that number this year! 

  • In school students:  Bring your donations to home base during the week of October 12th.
  • Remote learning students:  A bin for easy drop off will be provided outside of the cafeteria doors during the week of October 12th.

CMS Lost and Found

Attention parents: We have several pairs of eye glasses, a couple of watches, a retainer and a few earbuds in the lost and found basket that is kept in the office. Please note that when a valuable item is found in our building that we keep those items safe in the office. If you think that one of these items may belong to your child, please give us a call at 330-302-0206.

Cloverleaf Colts All Sports Boosters

For those of you who don’t know what the Cloverleaf Colts All Sports Boosters program is, here is a little background. We are a non profit organization designed to promote and encourage leadership, sportsmanship, and high moral character within our high school athletic community. We assist sports teams with financial requests for various needs, as approved by our committee members.

We organize and support various events and services, such as the concession stand at football games and the tailgate. We started a scholarship essay in honor of football/track Coach John Sands, who passed away in 2017, for athletes that he coached. We also have assisted with an Eagle project of a local boy scout.

Due to the covid-19 pandemic and restrictions that have been put into place, we are unable to fundraise through the concession stand and our reverse raffle and we are unable to have our annual reverse raffle in the spring, which is our largest fundraiser.

Therefore, the Cloverleaf All Sports Boosters is launching a unique t-shirt fundraiser to support all of our athletes. The link to the fundraiser is located below. Please note that the t-shirts are two sided with Cloverleaf strong on the front; all in this together with our horseshoe surrounded by all of the sports on the back.
