Hello Clever Community,

You’re invited as we make plans for the 3rd annual Clever Community Trunk or Treat @ Clever High School.   We will have two different times to meet and get input and ideas.  Both will occur on Thursday, Sept. 29th.   The first option would be during the day, noon lunch meeting at Corner Cafe.  If you can not make that meeting we will also off a short meeting at 6pm that evening, with a meeting location in Clever, to be announced in the next day or two.
Well over 500 children and adults came through last year and we hope to see it grow even bigger and better for Clever this year.  It’s a great opportunity for your organization and business too!
If you know you can’t make either of those, but would like to be involved, please send me an email and I’ll glad get with you individually.
Suggested ideas;
1)  We’re looking for as many decorated cars and vehicles as possible to be on the high school parking lot at 4:30pm, ready to begin handing out candy at 5pm
2) We’re also looking for many pots of different styles of chili for the fundraiser dinner for the Clever Fire  Department.  There will be a chili cook-off with prizes also.
3)  Organizations & Businesses that would like to participate can set up booths outside or inside with advance contact with us.  We will have an area inside with games for children to try to win candy or prizes.
4)  Businesses or individuals to sponsors awards for the Fire Department Chili Supper.  We’d love to give out awards in your business or personal name, and let you choose the winners.   All we would ask is that you supply the award or prize and you’ll be announced throughout the evening and have your materials distributed.
5)  Inflatable games and activities will also be available outside.
For more information, please join us at lunch in Corner Cafe, Thursday, 9/29 at noon or at 6 om that evening, location will be announced by Monday, in Clever.
You can also send an email with your interest to dan@myroadchurch.com   or call me at 417-849-2515.
Thanks & God Bless,
Dan Updegrave

Besides enjoying a sunny trip to Orlando, All-Americans will have the opportunity to meet cheerleaders and dancers from across the nation and enjoy a magical holiday season at Walt Disney World® Resort parks.

Home Football Game This Saturday!!

Folks-let’s pack the stands this Saturday for our first home game of the Clever Youth Football League!  The boys have worked hard and continue to improve. Come out and show your support!  YOU ARE OFFICIALLY INVITED!!

See the note from Coach Stone:

        Our kids are excited and thrilled to be hosting the first home football games this Saturday at Clever High School. Our 3rd/4th grade plays at 9:00am followed up by our 5th grade at 10:30 and 6th grade at 12:00pm. A lot of our kids do not have prior football experience and it has been rewarding for our parents and coaching staff to see the kids improve each week through hard work and commitment. We play in a very competitive league and we have been complimented each week for how quickly our kids are catching on to the game. We are building a foundation which we believe will prepare our kids for future success as they matriculate through to Junior High and High School. It is apparent to me that the Clever community invests in all children’s activities and we hope that football will be a positive addition to our school and community and provide structure for some who may not otherwise be plugged into an extracurricular activity. Thank you for your support and we will see you on Saturday. Go Bluejays!

Jeff Stone, Head Football Coach

September Student of the Month (SOTM):
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!!
Senior:            Megan Harry
Junior:            Lacey Owens
