Cleveland Academy made some very big strides during the month of March. From celebrating 16th birthdays, our Fun in the Sun Cook Out with Line Dancing, to Mama Rita visiting us with Christian rapper Xandrea. March was full of love, respect, and blessings. 

The girls made vision boards to represent their future dreams and goals. They were able to express themselves through magazine pictures and art. This event was hosted by Shift Supervisor Beatrice Hill. 

Through the creativity of our administration team we updated our incentive program to include Monarch Monday (point store incentive), Weird Wednesday (AFA incentive), and Fantastic Friday’s (FA incentive). These updates have aided in improved behavior, more positive attitudes, and staff participation.
