Club Day IS Exciting
Student Club Day is an opportunity for every student in our school to investigate a subject, hobby or activity that is appealing to their personal interests. Clubs meet at least monthly on our extended release day. Students enjoy a variety of clubs such as Gardening, Photography, Art, Math & Sports Fitness, Hands-On Science, Robotics, Coding and more!!
Students Learning To Garden
With a grant from Clemson University and in cooperation with many of our business and community partners, students and teachers are excited about our NEW GARDEN SPACE. It began in the Spring with a comprehensive plan and opportunities for students to actually construct the garden beds, build the soil levels, learn about composters and the many facets of gardening. Watermelon, tomatos and other good foods are already growing in the raised beds and work has already begun on some of the additional areas of this new outdoor learning space.
Going to Mars
Andy Aldrin, president of the Buzz Aldrin Share Space Foundation and son of former astronaut Buzz Aldrin, visited The Cleveland Academy of Leadership recently where he unveiled a GIANT Mars maps that will be used by fourth graders studying our solar system. The Mars Map will help teachers expand the current STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Math) curriculum. Fourth grade is the target age, and they’re being called the Mars Generation, because the belief is the first person to live on Mars is sitting somewhere in a fourth-grade classroom.
Cleveland Students Can Bank on Success
Thanks to our partnership with the Carolina Foothills Credit Union, students at Cleveland are now invited to open a personal savings account. Student accounts can only be established with a parent permission form and an accurate social security number. Student savers will have the opportunity to make deposits to their accounts, on a weekly basis, at the school's make-shift bank branch in the cafeteria.
