Teatro Americano

posted May 19, 2017, 8:24 AM by Mr Sidarous

Community Links teens are all about the drama.  They recently starred in a play through the Teatro Americano, hosted by OPEN Center for the Arts. This is an After School Matters Program that teaches students to write, direct, and act in their own plays.  Jennifer Serrano returned for her second season with the theater, but Jael Vela, Emely Calvario, Guadalupe Rendon, Rudy Martinez, and Irving Trujillo all made their Teatro Americano debuts in the play, From Heaven to Earth, a riveting experience featuring murder, soul snatchers, betrayal, love and passion, and a message about refugees and immigrants!

If your interested in the  fall, spring or summer sessions contact Ms. VP.

Jardincito Nature Play Garden

posted Oct 26, 2016, 9:15 AM by Mr Sidarous

The Jardincito, located at 23rd and Whipple, is a place where young children can play in and explore nature right in their own neighborhood. Rather than the traditional swings and slides, there are features borrowed from the natural world: an earthen mound, balancing logs, a herd of boulders, a pebble pool, a play deck, and play huts. CLHS was instrumental in the creation of this space and continues to be involved with the operation of the garden. Students from Spry Elementary, particularly Pre-K students, regularly use this space.
