LSI kicked off its annual beach party on Friday, Aug 28th in Huntington Beach. The weather welcomed everyone with a warm and beautiful opportunity to enjoy the cool ocean water. All schools flew their colors and motivated their volleyball team to do their best. This year’s championship went to the Los Angeles Angels. Congratulations to them for their efforts and competitive spirit.
One of the best things about the beach party is the energy students bring to support their classmates and their school. The beach party presents an opportunity for students and teachers to break from the normal routine and just have a day dedicated to fun. It’s always nice to see everyone have a good time and remember that a new language is about creating new relationships that will help them in their goal to succeed using English.
The water games followed the tournament with plenty of excitement. Between tug of war and eating crazy foods, students got a plenty of sun and sun tans. There were powerful teams and teams that surprised everyone. It was an exciting combination of people flinging water and sand, the sun’s heat intense rays, and an overwhelming venue of excitement. To keep that energy going, this year’s lunch was a delicious Chinese food box that got plenty of good reviews. It was an unexpected, but pleasant surprise.
Overall, it was a fun day at the beach and one that many students will surely remember. Thank you to everyone who participated and we hope to see you all again next year in our Language Systems Beach Party. Have fun and enjoy the rest of your summer.
