Happy Monday! I’ve got a short edition for you this week! If you have news, send by Sunday each week.
Students of the Month
The Clever High School Students of the month are:
Senior Shelby Gilmore
Junior Brittin Dover
Sophomore Briana Hanks
Freshman Laney King
The teaching staff at Clever High School nominates students to be SOTM based on desirable qualities that we would like to see in all of our Bluejays. SOTM are role models to their fellow classmates and are helpful and kind to the staff as well. After students are individually nominated, the nominees are voted on by the entire staff by class. One student from each class will win each month. The senior and junior winners are able to park in designated SOTM parking spots in the front of the parking lot for the month, they are given a free dessert ticket for the cafeteria, and there are more goodies coming soon! Congrats!!
Clever R-V School District Offers ACT
While budget cuts at the state level have resulted in the ACT no longer being offered to all juniors, the Clever R-V School District believes in the value of this assessment and making it available to all students.
The ACT will be given at Clever High School on Tuesday, April 3rd during the school day. The assessment is being offered at a discounted rate of $37. Any high school student can sign up to take the assessment.
There will be 4 ACT prep sessions available to students, each session will cover a different tested area. All 4 sessions will be beneficial to each student planning to take the test. These sessions will be held during the school day on the following Fridays: February 16th, February 23rd, March 9th, and March 23rd. If a student scores a 22 or higher on the ACT test, the school district will reimburse the student the cost of the ACT ($37).
Please have your student sign up to take the ACT and the ACT prep sessions with Mrs. Waisner by Friday, February 2nd. The fee will be due at a later time and directions will be sent home on how to pay for the test. Please DO NOT send money at this time to pay for the ACT test.
I encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity. Our hope is to offset the financial burden of taking the ACT while offering an incentive for students to score above the state average.

Hello I am Chris Garrett. I have lived in the Clever community for 20 years. My wife and I are proud to call Clever home. We have 3 children. One is a Clever graduate and a current freshman at College of the Ozarks. One is a senior at Clever and our youngest is a 7th grader. They have all been involved with band, sports, theater, FFA and other extra curricular Activities. I have been on the school board for the past 12 years. We have seen many changes in both our school nd community in that time. I have been proud to have been here to take part in that growth that we have experienced. We have many new things that have taken place and many more to come. I look forward to being a part of that.
