About this Article

The SEAL Sabres of Lombard will have a true home court Monday as the School of Expressive Arts and Learning holds its first day of classes in a new $5.5 million facility. "This is our 'wow' factor that a lot of (therapeutic day) schools don't have," said Karen Larson, one of the school's founders, about the gym where the SEAL Sabres will face other teams in the Chicago Area Alternative Education League.
