Cunningham's Rachel Ann cottage is looking quite updated these days. With staff help, students in our Vocational Education program spent several weeks painting walls, purchasing and refinishing furniture, and decorating. They showed off their work yesterday during an open house.
This morning, students arrived at Cunningham's newest school - Circle Academy in Rossville - to find enthusiastic teachers and staff, colorfully decorated classrooms, and new opportunities to learn.
Cunningham has been celebrating end-of-the-year successes! Youth have participated in two talent shows. Staff have handed out multiple awards. And we have all had the opportunity to celebrate our graduates. We've been fortunate to enjoy graduations and promotions from CIRCLE Academy, Gerber School, Urbana Middle School, and many more over the last several days.
Congratulations to Transitions Thrift Store in Urbana, Illinois for being honored as the 2013-2014 Business of the Year by Cunningham Children's Home.
Transitions was in good company Thursday afternoon as Cunningham Children's Home recognized 29 local community organizations and business partners that provide our students with vocational and life skill learning opportunities through the Vocational Education Program.
The Gemini Club has invited Cunningham Children’s Home to share about Foster Care needs in our community.
