Sports for Life Program Begins

Starting this past Thursday, HPES students were off and running with our Sports for Life Program.  This program, which has been at HPES for well over 40 years, was originally organized by parents.  For the past several years, HPES has taken over the program direction and uses support staff, teachers and parent volunteers to provide a consistent set of activities.  Students also pay a minimal fee depending on the activity they choose, and as always, scholarships are available for any student who requests.  Teachers who do not participate in the program have scheduled professional development during the SFL time.  This has provided HPES an opportunity to support specific teacher support and training that would otherwise take teachers out of the classroom.  Each teacher has at least one week off to participate in a SFL event of their choosing.  Program offerings this year are Alpine Skiing, Snowboarding, Cross Country Skiing, Bowling, Ice Skating, and Winter Shenanigans (a combination of sled riding, snowshoeing, snow sculpture and snow play, indoor cooking, maker space, music… depending on the weather).  We are also fortunate to have members from the LUHS cross country ski team volunteering in our SFL cross country ski program. 

Lancer Boys Basketball and HPES K students

The Lancer Boys Basketball team provided a BB clinic for our youngest players.  This was an inspiration to our future LUMS and LUHS players.  We appreciate the connection our students are making, on many levels, with students from LUHS and GMTCC.

Students enjoying their first day of Sports For Life Ice Skating!
We are fortunate to have “Winston” at school all day every Wednesday and Friday.  He is housed in the Reading Intervention space and has multiple joyful encounters with students throughout the day.  He is positively impacting students both in school and out of school.  We are grateful to Erin Hazard for providing this opportunity for our students and staff.  (In case you were wondering, he is a purebred Tibetan Terrier.)
