Glow Party! 

After a jam-packed day, you can wind down at our themed social event. Quite often the work of classified professionals is hidden in the background and our true colors don’t show in the big picture of education. Join us as as we celebrate the glow we all bring to our schools and colleges: The Saturday night social will be a Glow Party!

That’s right, wear your brightest colors as we dance under black lights, enjoy heavy appetizers and adult libations, and celebrate our essential contributions to education in California. If you can’t find anything “glowy,” you may buy an inexpensive white t-shirt in the CCE store. We will have glow markers on hand.
