Even after the school day ends, there’s still fun to be had for our youngest Lions! Lovett has developed a high-quality afternoon enrichment program featuring a number of options that provide meaningful learning and play after school lets out. Classes are conveniently offered on Lovett's campus in three seasonal sessions throughout the year.
A recent tour turned up Lower Schoolers engaging in a variety of afternoon activities:
For the first stop, we visited the Lower School Library, where children in grades 1-5 were learning the nuances of chess. Students of all levels were honing tactics and improving their strategic thinking skills. The class is taught by Coach Carlos Perdomo, International Master, current Georgia Class Champion in the highest category, and founder of Chess Atlanta.
Our second stop took us to the Lower School Multi-Purpose room, where girls in grades 3-5 were learning self-defense. The program “Girls Can Fight Too!” provides a fun-filled, informative and empowering program to prepare girls for societal and personal dangers that they might face. The students were learning the importance of boundaries and practicing using their voice & body language to address those boundary violations.
The third stop took us on the steep trek to the Lovett tennis courts, where Kindergarteners were improving their motor skills and learning to love the game of tennis. Paula Umana, who leads this program, is a certified professional coach with 16 years of experience as a head pro for children and juniors tennis programs.
