Dear Student and Parent/Guardian:
 
On behalf of the staff of The Cloverleaf School District, I want to welcome you to the new school year. Our school district is a place where high academic and behavioral expectations are realized. At Cloverleaf Local Schools, a district that exemplifies tradition, pride and excellence, we guarantee all students will have the ability to achieve their goals and possess the skills necessary to become contributing citizens by offering an experience-based, innovative core curriculum with diversified elective courses delivered by highly qualified staff in a safe, respectful and caring environment. To provide the best educational environment for each student, we need your continued support and cooperation. It is the collective responsibility of the Cloverleaf community to build a learning environment that encourages and challenges the individual student to become a self-directed, life-long learner. As educators, we promise to provide an atmosphere in which all students can experience success. At Cloverleaf Schools, we are dedicated to providing the best education for our children in the safest environment possible. As the Director of Curriculum and Instruction, I challenge you to become the best that you can be.  I also challenge you to make Cloverleaf Local Schools a better place because you walked through the doors and in our halls. I am proud of this community and the entire Cloverleaf School District. I wish you a successful and memorable year.
