Turkey Trot Pics

Thank you to the Clever Schools Wellness Committee for putting together this event and thank you to everyone who came out!  The weather was beautiful and the scenery on our country roads in Clever was magnificent!

Group Picture!  A few more turkey trotters showed up after the picture; it was a great turn out! Will Cordes. from STL, “won” the turkey trot!  He said his sister, Laura Cordes, lives in Clever and is a Springfield Police Officer.  I couldn’t find contact info for Laura, but I’m glad she had her family come out on Thanksgiving morning!

Hello Clever 11/20/17

Hello Clever Friends and Neighbors!  I haven’t posted in a couple weeks; I have just been sharing updates that have come my way.  I hope to be back to your scheduled programming!

Remember, students are out of school this entire week, returning November 27th.  Don’t forget to come out to the Clever Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day!  8am at the middle school south gym.  It’s free, just bring a package of diapers for the diaper bank, if you can, and burn some calories before you eat ALL the calories!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because of the oh-so-yummy carb-loaded foods, but also because it’s a wonderful time to reflect on what you are thankful for, spend time with family, and continue traditions.  Our tradition is dinner at my parent’s house in Springfield where everyone is invited.  If your family lives far away, maybe you don’t have family, or other circumstances, my parent’s house was and is ALWAYS open to those who want to join us.  I love that tradition.  We also play games and, like many of you, read through the ads to prepare for black Friday.  I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday with love, laughter and tradition.

~Rachel Simons

Clever Spotlight

Posted with Ashleigh Yoder’s permission

Commitment.  Determination.  Grit.

Last year, I met a Mom in my son’s 1st grade class during a class party.  She was quiet spoken when she approached me to share a sweet story about our kiddos, so we connected from then on out.  At class parties and field trips, we would chat and, of course, we became FaceBook friends and connected on Instagram.  Ashleigh Yoder is a beautiful young Mom, dedicating her time and energy to raise 2 sweet daughters.  She is shy, but I roped her in to volunteering on our School PTA, so I occasionally see her outside of the classroom.  This fall she WOWED those of us connected with her on social media and I want to share her story.

On a whim, she agreed with her friend to compete in a body building competition. Over the course of the spring and summer, she started working out for one hour a day.  She lifted weights and started eating clean.  Now, we all know how hard it is to change your eating habits, especially with a busy Mom life raising your family and cooking for them.  Her family understood and was accommodating eating lots of chicken and fish.   Additionally, she didn’t join a gym, she just purchased a book and started working out at home using free workouts at http://www.bodybuilding.com. Impressive, right?!?!?!? Her competition, a secret to most of her friends and family, was this past September and she posted before and after pictures.  I mean, c’mon!!!

Ashleigh competed in the North American Natural Body Building Federation (NANBF) competition in Kansas City.  She indicated, at first, she was doing it because her friend wanted to, but about 6 weeks before the competition she recognized the changes in her body and started caring about the competition and the possibility of placing.  As you can see in her pictures below, she is a knock-out, but more importantly she is an example of what commitment, determination, and grit can accomplish.  She placed 8th out of 12 competitors as a novice, beating some veteran competitors.  Awesome!

When I asked her if I could write about this journey of hers, she indicated her first reaction was “NO!”.  She talked it over with her husband, Tim, and he asked her why she posted her pictures on social media?  It was at that time that she realized she did it to inspire and encourage others.  Well, this is definitely inspirational!  Ashleigh, I’m proud and amazed by you and proud to know you.

State High School Cheer

The 2017-18 Clever Varsity Cheer squad competed at Cheer State two weekends ago in Columbia, MO at Mizzou.  This was the squad’s first year as a Coed squad, and they competed against 21 other schools.  The team had a good performance, and even though they did not place, they did have a win for one of the members.
Senior Shelby Gilmore received a high honor of becoming an All-State cheerleader!  This was Shelby’s first year on the high school squad, but she has been in All-Star Cheerleading for most of her life.  This is a huge accomplishment for Shelby, and her squad mates and school are so proud of her!

The school board met on November 14th in the high school library.

Roberts, McKenzie, Mangan, and Cummings, CPAs issued an audit report of the schools financial statements, issuing an unqualified opinion.  Mr. Fenske talked about the tutoring occurring throughout the elementary schools and the successes students are having.  A few emails from parents were shared stating their appreciation for the tutoring program.

Assistant Superintended Dr. Robin Gordon shared the Dyslexia screening law will be implemented in 2018.

Approximately 94% of the middle school (5th-8th grade) students were eligible for the attendance incentive, to see the movie Wonder.  (Subsequently, I talked to several students who said it is a must-see move!  I would also recommend reading the book; I read it with my boys last fall and enjoyed it very much!  Now, I can’t wait to see the movie myself!  ~Rachel)    See the trailer here:  Wonder Movie Trailer

The high school students of the month for October were presented:

Senior:  Hannah  Tackett; Junior:  Cara  Brown; Sophomore:  Kelsey  Johnston; Freshman:  Quinn  Gundelfinger

Hey there Clever Friends and Neighbors!  I apologize for the hiatus last week; I was once again in Alaska this time to meet and snuggle with my 3 week old nephew Ethan.

I am the oldest of 3 girls and my baby sister, Jennie, and her husband just adopted a little boy to join them and their 7 year old son.  I haven’t been to Alaska since 2009 and I was able to go twice this year!  We were able to enjoy a family vacation in late August, and I traveled by myself this time to get a week’s worth of baby snuggles!  This little boy is truly a blessing to our family. And if you ever get the chance, visit the beautiful state of Alaska!

Byron Glacier Trail in Portage, Alaska.

My sister, Jennie, and I with Ethan tucked snuggly in her kangaroo pouch.

I wish you a blessed week!

Clever Friends and Neighbors

This week I bring to you The Man, The Myth, The Legend, Dr. Richard Henson.  When I asked Dr. Henson if he would participate this week, he said he wasn’t sure how newsworthy he is, but you can see that he dedicated decades to our school system and impacted many students and faculty during his tenure:

Dr. Henson is retired from the position of Superintendent of Schools in Clever and  his wife Peggy is looking forward to retiring from her position as Librarian for Robinson Intermediate and Robinson Elementary in the Aurora School District. He is also retired from the US Air Force Reserve as a Chief Master Sergeant. All told he has 28 years in the public school system and 27 years in military service. He stays busy in retirement running, working out, teaching as an adjunct for Lindenwood University, and working part-time at Island Green Golf Course.

Halloween Safety Tips:

I found this info at Safe Kids  and it has some great reminders.  Be safe this Halloween!


Safe Kids

If you have children and have not yet subscribed to the Safe Kids Springfield newsletter, I would encourage you to do so.  They provide wonderful, relevant information and resources about a variety of topics as it relates to children.  Here are a few things that resonated with me in this month’s newsletter.  See more info here:  http://www.safekidsspringfield.org/

Fire prevention week is October 9-14.

I talked with Clever Fire District Chief Dozer Keithley, and he indicated that if you live in the fire district and have a child(ren) under the age of 18 living in the house, the Fire Department will deliver and install a smoke alarm for free.  Please contact the Fire Department for more information.  743-2000
