Last night at the January, 13th Board Meeting it was announced that school will return to in-person instruction starting Tuesday, January 19th for those students who were already attending in-person instruction for the first semester. The middle school will be following the exact same schedule, procedures, and processes that were implemented in the Fall. If you have any questions please reach out to your teachers.
Students attending the Cloverleaf Online Learning Academy (COLA) for the first semester will continue in the COLA program. If you are a COLA student who will be returning to attend in-person instruction for the second semester you will begin attending in-person classes on Monday January 25th (first day of the second semester).
Friday, January 15th a message will be shared with all of our COLA families who will be returning to in-person instruction on January 25th with orientation information.
I am very excited to welcome all of our students back. We have missed you all over these many weeks away. Welcome back!
The date of the CMS Spring Parent Conferences has been changed from January 21st to February 18th from 4:00 PM-8:00 PM. Conferences will be held virtually and will be scheduled through an online tool called PTCfast that will be shared with parents at a later date.

Yesterday Ms. Brooks and Mrs. Miracle talked about gratitude with our student during their weekly Wednesday Check In. With the Holidays among us counselors explained what gratitude meant as well as the impact of having an attitude of gratitude. Discovering happiness isn’t just appreciating new things, but also being grateful for what we already have and the good that other people contribute to our lives and in our world.
Gratitude can boost your mood, your school satisfaction, and relationships. Gratitude can also put a positive spin on stressful times by turning them into valuable lessons.
Student Council is once again organizing Cozy & Caring Days to directly benefit CMS families that may need a little assistance around the holidays.
New this year – families and staff can donate via Venmo or by phone on Wednesday: 12/9 and 12/16.
Students and staff are encouraged to wear pjs or comfy clothes on those Wednesdays and email a picture to Mrs. Sholtis (email@example.com) to be featured on a future blog post. With your help, we are looking forward to making this year’s collection another success!
To donate via Venmo, send your payment to @CMSPTO-CMSPTO (Dawn Hagenbaugh); to pay by phone call 330-302-0206 (Val Gregory) on Wednesday between 9:30am – 2:00pm.
Here at CMS we are dedicated to educating students to the best of our ability during these uncertain times. While online, part of our students’ responsibility to their education is to engage in all of their classes everyday!
As we have decided to add an incentive to those students who are engaged in all classes.
Students can earn a weekly “ticket” for engaging in all classes everyday! That means showing up to all of their classes (Including small group times). It is never too late for students to increase their engagement in their classes!
Teachers will enter weekly tickets into a drawing. Winners of the drawing will be chosen at random at the end of the day Friday, December 18th. Prizes include: An Alexa Echo Dot, JBL Speaker, or a TCL television/monitor.
Students who win a prize will have the prize delivered to their house on Friday Afternoon by CMS staff! Additional images of the prizes are provided below.
