The holidays are a great time to reflect, express thanks, and celebrate, and with our amazing students, Sound Learning gets to do just that. We wrapped up our Fall 2014 Qtr. with a holiday party to recognize students and volunteers, express our hopes for the new year, and of course, eat good food!
Twelve of our students surpassed 50 hours this quarter in the midst of busy work and family lives. In addition, 86% of students in the Eve. ESOL Program improved their ability to communicate on the job. That’s progress that matters! Click "read more" to read about who was honored.
