On Monday, January 11, several members of the Cañada Community celebrated the launch of La Costa Adult School in Half Moon Bay. More than 150 prospective students were in attendance to take advantage of key offerings such as: classes for immigrants, high school diploma or preparation for high school equivalency examination, job training, apprenticeships in business and classes for disabled adults. Cañada College offers two more levels of ESL, also on Mondays and Wednesdays evenings, and Computer classes on Tuesday evenings, which prepare students to transition to Cañada College. When students successfully complete these courses, they earn the English for the Workforce Award, a Cañada College ESL Department award, which is a college pathway partially funded by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. A special thank you to Gregory Anderson, Anniqua Rana, Jenny Castello, Diana Espinosa Osuna and Mayra Arellano who were in attendance to welcome the students.
