MU program for kids K-12 extends registration deadline

The enrollment deadline for Marshall University’s summer enrichment program in the Charleston area for students in grades K-12 has been extended to Monday, June 9.

The five-week program, which integrates hands-on, activity-based learning experiences with supervised clinical training for Marshall graduate students, will take place each Monday through Thursday from June 16-July 17 at Stonewall Jackson Middle School. Sessions will run from 8 to 11:30 a.m., with breakfast and lunch provided for those under 18 years of age.

Students from the university’s special education, school counseling and school psychology departments will work with participants, offering learning experiences in reading, writing and math. Assessment and counseling services are also available. Graduate students participating in the program are closely supervised and receive daily feedback.

The cost for the program is $100 per student, which supports the operating costs. Tuition assistance is available, so no one should let cost deter them from applying, according to Dr. Sandra Stroebel of Marshall’s College of Education and Professional Development, who is coordinating the program.
