Congratulations to Clearwater Middle School's Honor Roll Students

 At the end of each quarter we recognize students on their academic achievements by publishing honor roll lists on our school web site, in a display case in our cafetorium and in a future publication of The Waconia Patriot.
 
 In order to maintain continuity in our schools, our honor roll system will now mirror the high school’s recognition of academic achievement. Our GPA is a 4.0 system and students can earn their way to Honor Roll 1, which is a 3.665-4.0 GPA or Honor Roll 2, which is a 3.0-3.664 GPA.
 
Additional recognition: Students who maintain a 4.0 grade point average through all 3 quarters of the 2014-15 school year will be invited to a small breakfast celebration after the 3rd quarter grading period for students.

Please see below in Links and Forms for Quarter 2 Honor Roll lists.
