Our perennially popular drama teacher, Becca Greene-Van Horn, continues to hold her improvisation classes for kids. ‘Youth Improv’ starts April 7, and ‘Gods, Goddesses, and Percy Jackson’ starts April 8. For younger kids, children’s book illustrator David Hyde Costello will hold drawing and illustration classes, starting on April 1 and 2. Finally, on Sat., April 11, LSSE will host a coach bus trip to New York City, a manageable, easy way for families to experience the City together.
Sports offerings include…
Youth Volleyball Clinic: This is a recreational clinic that will emphasize skill development, teamwork, and fun. At this clinic the focus is to build on fundamental skills for kids in grades 5-8. We hope to perfect technique so that kids are ready to take their game to the next level and potentially play in high school. View flyer: Volleyball 2015
