Conscious Discipline

Community Academy along with High Grove Early Childhood Center are partnering up to offer Conscious Discipline Classes! The class is a 6-week training program for GC-4 families, grades pre-k- 2nd grade, who want to strengthen the parent-child relationship and encourage cooperation-without yelling. Please join us October 23, November 6, 13, 27 and December 4. To sign up, please register at this link: For questions or more information, you may call Pupil Services at 316-5037.


Jostens will be at the High School for seniors to get information about graduation regalia and announcements. Meeting is October 3, 2018 at 7:30 in the auditorium. Bus will leave CAIR at 7:20 and return about 8:30. Parent permission is needed for the bus.

Advisory has hit CAIR

Advisory is another tool in our tool box at CAIR.  Homeroom Teachers will be working with students on number of different activities from how to set up a calendar for themselves, getting to know their peers and staff, how to fill out a resume or housing application, how to plan what to cook and use a grocery ad to do.  Many life skills that will transfer over to their learning in the classroom will be talked about and worked on.  We are excited about rolling this out and seeing where it takes us.

Noonan-Kurtz Scholarship Winner is:

Vanessa Swartz originally joined CAIR as part of the Missouri Options Program this fall.  She decided she'd like to go the more traditional route and moved to the Transitions program later in the year.  Vanessa demonstrated her excellence as a student early on by scoring a 20 on the ACT as part of the Duke TIP program in middle school. She was a model student during her time in Mr. Jarrett's homeroom earning gold sheet status and completing additional coursework to graduate this spring.  Vanessa plans to attend Metropolitan Community College in the fall.  Vanessa has a love for music and pop culture as well as having an excellent approach to life.  It has been a joy and pleasure to work with her this year and we wish her the best.
