What's New in C2

December 5th - 16th

C2 Christmas Celebration!

Every year we have the tradition of bringing all of our C2 families together to celebrate the holiday season. We were excited to have Mr. Kendall come read "The Night Before Christmas" and join us in singing Christmas Carols.


Our C2 Team wishes you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Please enjoy your winter break and we look forward to seeing all our learners return January 4th, 2017!
