A New Lower School Opportunity: Theater

Date:  Tuesday, December 14, 2021 Byline:  Cherie Gallian, Lower School Theater Specialist

What a satisfying experience to teach Theater in Lower School! The possibilities for growth are endless with children of this age. They have few to no reservations about trying new challenges, as imaginative play is something they engage in naturally. Adding theater to an elementary school program is genius. Theater can help bridge the gap that opens up when children start to become self-conscious and start putting labels on things, people, and experiences. But that’s not the only thing a theater class can do for our children.

Happy Holidays!

Hi everyone, 

Hope all of you are doing well. If you don’t know me, my name is Lalith, I am a senior and I also serve as Co-President of the Upper School Community Service Club here at Waterford. I am here to talk to you guys about a recent community service project we did on the outskirts of Salt Lake. As a basic general overview of the project, the club spent a morning cleaning up and managing a goat farm.  Before I speak further, I would like to show you a video.

How many of you have visited Zion National Park and had the good fortune to see Weeping Rock before it was closed due to a rockfall? Weeping Rock is a geological and hydrological wonder, although there are many places like it scattered across the Southwest.
