Back in the day, “after school” meant walking home, grabbing a snack, and running back out the front door. You played with whoever lived in your neighborhood or you got on your bike and rode to a friend’s house. Today, after school looks different for children. We recognize the stress that families feel in order to curate the many activities and interests your child may have, all while navigating a busy city with traffic.

In an effort to help families take advantage of the exceptional talent and resources that Los Angeles has to offer without even having to leave campus, we have designed an after school program that we believe will meet the many interests and curiosities of our students.

We are excited to introduce The After Schoolhouse which will make its debut on April 13th for our Spring Session. We are offering on-campus classes exclusively for HSH students with some of the most sought-after organizations in Los Angeles. We are excited to welcome our new partners – YADA, School of Rock, Shaolin Temple, Encore French Program, Sophie Dance, Digital Dragon, The Haiku Guys, and more to come – to our community. Of course, many of our beloved programs are still in place as well.

Mr. Memo Macalpin will be overseeing all classes and curriculum. We have a registration website that should make sign-ups and payment much easier as well. Should you need any assistance or have any questions, please reach out to Memo at memo@hshla.org

We look forward to seeing your child in action.

Poetry HAIKU  by the Haiku Guys [2nd-3rd] 3:00-3:45 [$300] REGISTER HERE!

Poetry HAIKU  by the Haiku Guys [4th-6th] 3:45-4:30 [$300] REGISTER HERE!

Historically, haiku is a Japanese form of poetry that uses images from nature to represent a specific feeling. These poems are tiny, usually three lines long, and only let you have a certain number of syllables (17, to be exact: 5-7-5). But with poetry, rules are made to be broken.

Children are naturally the best poets. At every turn in their young life, something new is observed, consumed, learned. Not yet tethered to the arbitrary rules of grammar nor the fear of intellectual judgement, their language comes from the heart and their expression is genuine.

One professional poet needs the help of fourteen children to recover from Writer’s Block. First, you’ll learn about haiku poetry, what it’s rules are, and how you can break them. Then, we’ll search for inspiration—from the wacky and weird to the beautiful and moving—the sky isn’t even the limit. After drafting haiku, we’ll type them out on some very cool old typewriters that are probably older than your parents. At the end of the program, everyone will have created a wide-ranging collection of haiku—imagined, written, hand-typed, and personalized—all on your own.
