CIRCLE Academy

Coming Full CIRCLE

In early December, youth from CIRCLE Academy-Vermilion (CAV) went on a special school trip - to see Wonder. A movie based on the New York Times bestseller, Wonder tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time.

The Chicken Lady

At Cunningham Children's Home, everybody knows the Chicken Lady. Yes, you read it right, the Chicken Lady. Since 2009, Naneen (Nani) Baker has lived in a home that backs up to Cunningham's property and she has chickens in her backyard ... lots of them. How many you ask?

Colorful Success

 
"I know I had fun," 10-year-old Quentin said. "Today was about friendship, sportsmanship, courage, respect, just a lot of stuff. I know I learned a lot."
 
Quentin, a student at Cunningham's CIRCLE Academy-Vermillion (CAV) in Rossville, and his classmates and teachers had just finished the school’s first Color Run and he was beaming with pride.
