The next two weeks are very exciting and busy with lots of activities taking place on campus leading up to Spring Break. Please stay focused and keep working hard!
Autism Awareness Week:
Please see the attached flyer for Autism Awareness Week! Our CGS Diversity Club and EC Department are excited to bring awareness to autism and show our support for how special each and every one of our students at CGS is! We hope that you will participate in Spirit Week this week to show your support!
Our CGS Diversity Club is wrapping up the final touches on the activities and events scheduled for the week of April 11th-April 14th. We will have a schedule of events to share with you next Sunday. We are excited about the opportunity to teach our students about the various cultures from around the world.
Prom tickets continue to be on sale through this Friday, April 8th before school or during HS lunch in the café.

Our Student Council is running a “Books for Babies” campaign. They will be taking cash donations and/or brand new baby board books. This book drive will run from Monday, April 4th– Wednesday, April 13th. All donations will be going to buy board books to be donated to the Family Support Network of Central Carolina. The FSNCC will then give these books to families who have a baby in the NICU. Each family gets a book upon their NICU admission and that’s around 50 babies a month. Twice a month, they do Books for Babies, where every baby gets an additional book to keep. They also make goodie bags for NICU siblings and always include a book in those as well. They generally have about 40 babies in the NICU on any given day, so in a month they are giving out about 150 books all together.
There will be drop boxes for board books located in the K-2 and 3-12 car lines & in the security office. If dropping off books, students need to have their name and teacher’s name labeled somewhere on the front. There will be a competition to see which class collects the most Board books to donate. Each book donation will count for $3 towards their classroom total (elementary) or teacher’s donation box (middle/high). Elementary: The class with the most money raised by Book Donation or monetary donation will receive an ice cream party. Middle and High School: Teacher donation boxes will be located outside the gym and in the commons area in building 2. The two teachers with the most money donated into their box will be getting pied in the face! Thank you for helping us support a great cause in our community! Please reach out to our Student Council Advisors, Mrs. Taylor Paschal at email@example.com or Mrs. Lisa Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions.
Board Election Information (Accepting LOI/Resumes from April 3rd– April 14th by 5:00 P.M.)
We are currently in the process of filling the two parent elected board member seats on our school board that will become available for our 2022-2023 school year. Please see the attached letter for additional information if you are interested in applying. A special shout out goes to our Clover Garden School Board of Directors for their continued unwavering support and guidance for our school during some unprecedented times! Being a board member is more than just attending a board meeting once a month. Our Clover Garden School Board Members pour in endless volunteer hours and committee work in their “free time” to ensure CGS has a successful future! This comes with hard work, mission/vision planning, and strategic oversight. Please see the attached letter for more details if interested in applying.
- Online yearbook ordering will end on April 15th. Please see the attached flyer for a reminder as well.
Reminder about School Rules/Expectations:
Parents, please take a moment to review our school’s Code of Conduct with your students. This can be found in our school’s Student/Parent Handbook located in Canvas. “Spring Fever” is upon us! Students are getting excited about Spring Break approaching and Summer break being right around the corner. As our days continue to warm up, our students tend to get “excited” and may not be “thinking” as rationally as normal. Please remind your students of our expectations at Clover Garden School. We’ve had quite a few incidents recently with discipline referrals with behavior that is normally very much out of the character for our students at CGS. Sometimes, a gentle reminder from administration, our teachers, and our parents can help make a difference. Thank you for the help with this and for helping us reinforce our values at CGS!
Mission Statement: Clover Garden School will foster community, generate enthusiasm, challenge students academically, and produce successful citizens.
Vision Statement: The vision for Clover Garden School is to create a community of empowered learners in an atmosphere of mutual respect, responsibility, and trust. Every student will be inspired and challenged to learn, grow, and accomplish academic, social, and career goals.
