SCLA Adventures Continue!

A big thank you to all our SCLAers who helped make our MLK Celebration a big success! SCLA is proud to work hand in hand with the City of Longmont Multi-Cultural Committee to continue to make Longmont a more inclusive community.

To see some of the coverage of the event:

Chinese New Year! 

Another big event with the Multi-Cultural Committee will be the Chinese New Year Celebration coming up on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 28th 2-5pm at SCHS.  Last year, over 1300 people attended this event, which features a wonderful program in the gym including the Lion Dance, and Taiko drummers and amazing booths all along the hallways of SCHS to free food!  
This event is part of Senior SCLAer Teagan Knechtel's Capstone Project. She needs over 100 volunteers for this event.  Mark the date and  be ready to help and enjoy this awesome day!
