Recently the Little Lake Learning Community has had the opportunity to participate in a few fun, community-based field trips!
The weekend after Thanksgiving, several Little Lake students starred in the Ypsilanti Youth Theater production of Brian Guehring’s play “Sherlock Holmes and the First Baker Street Irregular.” The remaining students, staff and volunteers were able to view the final dress rehearsal at Riverside Arts Center along with several other students from Ypsilanti-area schools and homeschooling co-operatives. According to Momo, the play broke the record for being “the shortest field trip in Little Lake History” since the school only needed to travel up the stairs to the next floor! We who attended appreciated the opportunity to see and support our fellow students on stage!
In mid-December, the entire school traveled to the Jewish Community Center to participate in a free screening of the classic 1987 film, “The Princess Bride.” The senior citizens and staff were excited to have the children attend. Students, staff and volunteers enjoyed popcorn, tea and the welcoming attitudes of the JCC folk along with the film!
