Lee Academy students completed individual art works for Art Instructor David Audet’s collaborative sculpture that was included in the “Ybor’s Perpetual Expression II” invitational art show.  It was displayed from January 11th through February 7th in Hillsborough Community College’s Art Gallery across from the Cuban Club.  The Gallery kindly agreed to a special opening and reception for Lee Academy students, family and friends on Saturday, January 20th.

Lee Academy will be hosting an Open House on Thursday, March 15th from 9am – 2pm.

Lee Academy’s newly-formed Chess Club had fantastic results at its initial tournament, placing 3rd in the 6-12th grade division and 4th in the 4-5th grade division.  There were also some great individual results, including 3rd grader Daniel Fellerhof’s 2nd place finish on the 4-5th grade division.

Yoga is a remarkable practice for the body, mind and emotions.  Researchers have now found evidence as to how it is good for brain health as well, with study results showing improved speed, accuracy, memory and focus. Each Tuesday and Thursday at 8:00 AM, Danielle Roy (MS in Organizational Psychology and Kundalini Yoga Level 1 KYT-200 certified) teaches a 25 minute class for interested students of all ages.  A fee of $ 2 will be charged for each class.  Please contact Danielle Roy directly (contact information previously provided).

We have added a Performance Arts Class for Lower School students this year. Danielle Fellerhof and Anne Scott Vela are experienced in introducing children to the joys of performance arts and eliciting theatrical, music and dance skills from our younger students.  The class is held the last period each Wednesday (2:00 PM – 2:45 PM).

The Lee Academy Chess Club meets each Wednesday (2:45 PM to 4:00 PM). Under the tutelage of Danielle Fellerhof, the Chess Club will provide students with an enjoyable way to improve their skills in concentration, critical thinking, logic, visualization and sportsmanship.  Open to all ages, please show up if interested.

 

We look forward to welcoming all our 2017-2018 students back to school on Thursday, August 17th, 8:30AM – 2:45PM. Friday August 18th will also be a full school day. See you all soon!
