Clarke Middle School Students and Staff,

This Wednesday, October 10th, I received official confirmation from Franklin Covey that Clarke Middle School has now been recognized as an official "LIGHTHOUSE SCHOOL"!!!  This is truly great news!

We did it!  This wouldn't have been possible without your hard work, in particular in preparation for the Lighthouse Review on Wednesday, September 26th, and commitment to The Leader in Me process.

This has been a long time coming, we started this over 5 years ago with a book study - we stuck with it and saw it through (and our students are better because of it), and this makes my heart happy!  

THANK YOU and know that I appreciate each of you so much for all that you've done!  I know I might be a little bit biased but I think our MS students and staff are the BEST!!!

At this time, I would like all Clarke Middle School students and staff to stand up and cheer, loud and proud!!!  Thanks again...


Mr. Jeff Sogard
