CCC K8 After-School Enrichment Programs

The PTSA strives to offer our students the opportunity to participate in a variety of enrichment activities after school such as yoga, Tai Chi, cartoon drawing, music lessons, choir,  youth athletic development, and science and technology programs. Some activities involve a fee while others are free to the students. We look forward to offering even more diverse, fun and educational classes this year. If you are interested in sharing a hobby or skill to provide our students with new experiences, please contact Lena Benisch.
