Student, Parent and Community Involvement
We welcome the community to visit our classes, meet with our administration, and ask questions concerning our goals and vision for our learners.
CPHS College, Career, and Service Fair is held in early October each year so students and parents can meet local agency and business representatives, college admissions personnel, and volunteer coordinators. Additionally, for parents of graduating seniors and juniors, we offer evening seminars for the family to discuss the demands of higher education, financial aid and scholarship information, and the college application process.
The school website features school programs, upcoming events, a calendar and information concerning the different departments and activities of CPHS.
Each Career and Technical Education program at CPHS collaborates with the local community to provide real-world experience for students. Some students are employed in a job related area during their study. In addition, business and professional people regularly serve as resource speakers.
The Air Force Junior ROTC program has developed a partnership with Joint Base Lewis-McChord through which our JROTC cadets participate in field trips, drill competitions and classroom resources. Year after year, they have been recognized as an Outstanding Unit by the Air Force. As a group, they are actively involved in: Cities and Schools Fund Raiser; Caring for Kids Food Drive; Make a Difference Day; Pierce County Special Olympics; Lakewood Clean-up Day; and support the Chamber of Commerce with military appreciation events.
Student involvement has many forms at CPHS. The Associated Student Body of CPHS invites students to develop leadership skills that can be applied responsibly in school. Nearly seventy juniors and seniors serve as mentors to incoming ninth grade students, participating in a middle school visit, hosting a transition day at the high school in the spring, and hosting a 9th grade academy before school begins. They also serve as mentors throughout students' 9th grade year. The Science Club works with the Clover Creek Clean-up Project and Cascade Blood Services. As a member of the Lakewood Community, Clover Park High School also has youth representation on the Lakewood City Council.
Clover Park High School’s Arlington Project, which memorializes American service members killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, continues to be of significant importance to the Lakewood community and service members stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. CPHS will continue to honor the dignity and courage of those men and women who have served and sacrificed themselves in the name of freedom and liberty. Meaningful community service and commitment will remain as the guiding principle by which CPHS measures the success of students and graduates.
