Lava Heights Academy Troubled Teens Celebrate Holidays With Service and Drama

Toquerville, UT (PRWEB) December 20, 2012

Lava Heights Academy, an arts focused residential treatment center for teens with behavioral problems, located in the sleepy, scenic desert town of Toquerville, will ring in the holiday season with a program of live theater and community service. In acknowledgement of the true spirit of the season, students will have the opportunity to give back to the local community.

The bright students at Lava Heights typically have a background in the creative arts, and their upcoming slate of good works will allow them to express themselves while also learning the valuable lesson that it is truly better to give than to receive. All children should be encouraged to participate in charity and relief programs, but for teens with behavioral problems, the activity can be character building and may bestow a sense of accomplishment where one is sorely needed.

This Friday, December 21, students from Lava Heights Academy will present a shortened performance of Dr. Seuss’ holiday classic, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, to an audience of young children at Valley Academy, a charter elementary school located in Hurricane, UT. The universal themes of the story are sure to lift the spirits of audience and cast alike.

Over the weekend, following Friday’s performance, the students will be visiting area retirement homes to sing Christmas carols for resident retirees. This project was organized at the behest of one of Lava Heights Academy’s own students. As the holiday season began, the student pleaded with his teachers that he wanted to sing for, “the old folks.”

Lest anyone should worry that the Lava Heights teens are working too hard to enjoy the holiday times themselves, this past weekend they attended a local performance of The Nutcracker, Tchaikovsky’s perennial holiday masterpiece.
