Brochures from the International Academy (IA) were emailed to parents via Dr. Schihl's Quick Notes on Friday, November 10th. Eighth-grade students interested in applying to the Academy need to submit an online application, $20 application fee, and a recommendation directly to the IA by Monday, January 22, 2018. If more students apply than there are spots available, a lottery will be held February 7, 2017, at 4 p.m. in the Clawson Middle School media center. For more information about the IA, visit their website at www.iatoday.org.

If you need some help in one or more of your classes, the first thing you should do is talk to your teacher. You may also want to sign up for a Peer Tutor. We will match you up with another student who is doing well in the class to help you. Then at lunch time, 2 or 3 days a week, you and your tutor will bring your lunches and school work to the counseling center. We have small quiet rooms that you can use to work and eat together. Peer Tutor sign up forms are available in the counseling center or click here to print one: I Need a Tutor sign up form
Scholars Club is for students who need to work on assignments, study for an upcoming test, or get help with their work. There are two teachers available to assist you if needed. Scholars Club meets most Tuesdays, Wednesday, and Thursdays, from 2:45 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. in CMS Lab 110. In order to maintain an on-task, academic learning environment, students and parent/guardians must agree on the Scholars Club rules. The rules must be signed prior to a student's second visit to Scholars Club. The rules are available in the counseling center or you can click here to print a copy: Scholars Club Rules and Expectations
