Dodgers Game!

On Wednesday night, September 10th, teacher John B. from LSI Downtown took 15 students to the Dodger baseball game at Dodger Stadium. It was the first time for most of the students to attend a Major League baseball game, but we also had a few die-hard Dodger fans as well. 

It was interesting watching students from Japan, Korea, Thailand, Brazil, and Taiwan wolfing down hotdogs and super-sized nachos, while watching the Dodgers beat San Diego 4-0. @LSILA

Hope to see you again next season!! Go Dodgers!!

Bowling Night

On Friday, September 5th, several LSI students joined the LSI teacher Caroline Leva for some late night bowling and billiards fun at the Shatto 39 Lanes. Everyone had a blast! A total of 40 students came to the event. Some invited their friends along to enjoy as well. We were everywhere at the Shatto Lanes :) It was great energy and lots of laughs all throughout.  @LSILA

Beach Party & Volleyball Tournament

        LSI’s Beach Party is one of the biggest events of the year for students excited about experiencing an unforgettable summer in beautiful Southern California! This year, LSI decided to try something new and changed this exciting party to a new location, the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica, one of LA’s best kept secrets! Located near the iconic Santa Monica Pier, this year’s party was full of new things to see and do.  


      Everything kicked off with the volleyball tournament in some intense and exciting matches. LSI OC came out on top, above all others, winning every match. The LSI staff worked relentlessly to make sure everyone had food, great customer service, and tons of fun. The ice bucket challenge raised $165 for ALS and the strange foods competition served to illuminate the facility with student cheers of excitement, drawing in the public with energetic curiosity. The strong tides roughed up students in the beach games, providing entertainment for all onlookers. The tug-of-war title was taken again by LSI Downtown, adding another title to their massive collection.  


       Other beach games included filling a large bucket with sea water or fetching a stick in the wave break and bringing it back to the sand finish line.  Students and staff took advantage of the canopies, pool, restaurant, and courtyard umbrella tables in full force. The new facility made things much more convenient for people in many ways, and the view didn't hurt either. The change of location provided a new possibility for parties to come. We all look forward to next year's beach party and hope everyone had an unforgettable experience!

Ice Skating Activity

To beat the August heat, LSI Torrance went Ice Skating on Saturday night. The Skating Edge in Harbor City hosts an evening of hip-hop music with strobe lights every Saturday evening. It's always a fun time, not to mention great exercise! After a few hours of skating the group shot some billiards and practiced English conversation. @LSISBLA
