CJSF and CSF (California Scholarship Federation) are honor societies recognized by companies and institutions, which award scholarships. Clark Intermediate has formed a chapter of California Junior Scholarship Federation (CJSF). It is an honor service club to which one who qualifies must apply. It is not automatic. To qualify, students must earn at least three A's and
36 two B's in classes other than PE, and file an application with the CJSF advisor. Citizenship is a factor.
Application Procedure:
A notice to pick up application forms to join CJSF will be in the Daily Bulletin for ten (10) consecutive days. The CJSF Constitution does not allow a student to be recruited. A student may not join after the deadline for application.
Membership is based on semester grades. Qualifying grades must come from academic subjects only.
Scholarship requirements will be determined as follows:
• All grades earned for the semester must be "C" or better.
• Three (3) points are counted for an "A” and one (1) point is counted for a "B" grade.

Lifetime CJSF
Clark Intermediate students who qualify and apply for membership for three (3) semesters will be awarded the Honor Membership Pin at the Principals' Academic Awards at the end of the year.

Clark Block "C" Award
The Block "C" Award is a special end of the year award for the "all-around" scholar. The award is a tribute to the students at Clark Intermediate School whose involvement reflects the spirit of the Clovis Sparthenian. It is one of the most prestigious awards a student may earn at Clark Intermediate School. This honor is available to seventh and eighth grade students and is awarded in June at the second semester academic awards night. The criteria for earning this award reflect a broad base of character, participation, academic achievement, and service. Click here to view Block C Application.

Sparthenian Recognition
Sparthenians are selected from both the seventh and eighth grades by their Team teachers/Learning Directors. Attendance at the Exemplary Student Luncheon acknowledges Sparthenians for their contribution/involvement in the development of mind, body and spirit. Parents of Sparthenian Award winners are invited to the luncheon at no cost. The student will bring notification informing parents of the date and time home.

Character Counts Award
Among all the other Character Education activities done during the school year, one class period a month is set-aside for Clark students to review the various pillars of the Character Counts Program. Teachers are asked to nominate a student who they feel best exemplifies the Character Counts Pillar that is being emphasized during that month. Nominees should be students who have exemplified that pillar not only in a particular instance but also on many different occasions. We want to honor those students who still exemplify character when no one is looking. The winners are honored at the Exemplary Student luncheons and then have their picture and name engraved on the Character Counts plaque that graces the hallway of the main office. Monthly Character Counts Pizza parties are for any student who turns in lost items of value to the team offices.

Student Recognition Luncheon
Teachers will choose students to be recognized who exhibit exemplary effort and achievement in their classrooms. Honorees have the pleasure of public recognition while their parents are present. The luncheon is free to all parents of students honored. Notification informing parents of the date and time will be brought home by the student.
