The Crab Man

School-age students enrolled in LVCC's South Mountain location spent the morning reading "The Crab Man" by by Patricia E. Van West and Cedric Lucas. Not only did the book teach a lesson about courage but it encouraged the students to learn more about Jamaica and hermit crabs.


Seeing Eye Puppy

Mrs. Heimbach visited LVCC at Truman School today with her furry friend, Irwin, to talk to the children about the important work of seeing eye dogs. Mrs. Heimbach is a Puppy Raiser for the Seeing Eye. Visits like this one are important for Irwin, because he needs to be socialized to learn how to be around people in public places.


PBS Taping

Our friends from PBS visited LVCC's Fowler Center today to tape a segment for TEMPO! The segment is scheduled to air February 5th at 7:30 PM on PBS. We'd like to extend our appreciation to our friends from PBS, Fowler Center staff, students and parents for their participation. We'd also like to send an extra special thank you to Janet and Colleen for their willingness to be interviewed. Excellent job!
