SAU Magnolia Mulerider Kids College and Teen College

Mulerider Kids College is a summer enrichment program for children entering into 1st through 6th grades. Our goal is to provide the children in our community with exciting and stimulating learning opportunities to enhance their education without the pressure of grades, homework, or tests. Mulerider Kids College offers several unique classes that are fun, entertaining, and educational! Classes are taught by SAU faculty, staff, and local teachers that are committed to providing students with a great experience! SAU will also host its first annual Mulerider Teen College this summer.

MKC is a four day camp where students will take three 60 minute classes of their choice, per availability. Children will be grouped according to the grade they will be entering into. All age groups will be provided with a snack, t-shirt, and bag. Students choosing to enroll in both morning and afternoon camps will be provided lunch in the cafeteria.

Southern Arkansas University will host its first annual Mulerider Teen College this summer! This will be a three day camp for students entering into 7th – 9th grades. MTC is designed to give Junior High students fun and educational experiences outside of a regular classroom setting. Students will have the opportunity to choose three classes, participate in leadership activities, and experience hands on learning! They will gain insight into different subjects that will ultimately help them decide what college majors to pursue.

Mulerider Teen College (MTC) will be July 5th – 7th, 8am – 12:30pm. Tuition will be $50 and that includes a t-shirt and lunch each day.

Community Service Project to Support Arkansas Children’s Hospital

Three years ago, Smackover High School Junior Reagan Richardson began a drive for Arkansas Children’s Hospital called “Feel the Love.”  Her purpose is to try to provide Christmas gifts for patients spending the holidays at ACH, specifically for teenagers. (Teens are not as much fun to buy for, so that age group tends to get overlooked!)

“Feel the Love” is beginning their big push for this year.  If you, your organization, church group, or family want to become  involved in something special, and then please consider donating on of the top 5 requested items for Christmas.

If you would like to help, you may purchase any of these, and take them to Reagan or her mother, Mrs. Aprile Richardson, at the high school by December 9th.  If you want to help, but you don’t like to shop, you are welcome to donate money, and they will do the shopping for you.
