CLOVER -- With only a few months left before students leave Clover Middle School for the last time, it will host the 20th and final annual Spring Extravaganza next Thursday.
Next year the school will become office space for the district staff, students will roam the halls at Oakridge Middle School or the new Clover Middle School in what used to be the junior high.
But right now the fourth quarter of the school year is about to begin, which means it's time for Spring Extravaganza. From 5 - 8 p.m. parents, students and community members can tour the school, checking out a plethora of student art work along the way, pick up a book at the book fair conducted by school media specialist Debbie Burns, grab a bite to eat and take in a show.
"The Spring Extravaganza is another opportunity to showcase student work," Assistant Principal Mike McAdams said. "Students have been very productive in the fine arts and physical fitness."
Never miss a local story.
The hallways will be lined with student work on massive poster boards and bulletin boards, he added. Pottery and paper mache sculptures and other assembled art work will be displayed in the halls as well; all organized by art teacher Angel Kettles.
A hot dog supper will be served beginning at 5 p.m.
Starting at 6 p.m. in the school gymnasium, parents can check out what their kids have been learning in P.E. class recently, courtesy of the physical education department.
The school's chorus and music programs will close out the final Spring Extravaganza with a student concert featuring vocalists and students playing the ORFF instruments they use in music class, starting at 6:45.
"This year's event will be our final hoo-rah and will be one that no one should miss," McAdams said.
