SUU Community Education Partners with North Elementary to Expand Offerings

For those interested in developing hobbies and pursuing special interests, SUU Community Education and North Elementary announce a new joint venture in offering fun learning experiences and classes for adults and families alike. The collaboration allows the two programs to share resources and benefit the community by offering classes at the centrally-located, university partner elementary school.

“We've enjoyed support from SUU for a number of years, but this partnership brings us to a new level,” said Ray Whittier, principal of North Elementary. “Not only will this collaboration allow our school to provide a gathering place for our community, it also gives our students and parents, as well as their friends and neighbors, opportunities to learn something new while enjoying our beautiful building.”

North Elementary’s new building offers a variety of space to fit the needs of the classes offered. The art lab is ideal for the live succulent wreath making class, families will have loads of room to learn and practice theatre games in the large gymnasium with stage, the bright and open entrance hall is perfect for the salsa and swing dance classes, and an adult-sized classroom is comfortable for all attending the summer school of magic class.

“Holding community education classes at North Elementary just made a lot of sense,” said Susie Knudsen, assistant director of SUU’s Community & Academic Enrichment. “We’re thrilled to be able to expand our offerings with shared access to North Elementary’s easily accessible location on 200 North.”

Registration for June and July summer education is now open; classes are designed to fit into any summer schedule. During the summer, many community education classes like geology hiking, Social Security planning, beginner mountain biking, and paddle boarding meet once or twice, while other classes, such as watercolor, community band, and sign language will meet throughout the summer.

To register for classes visit suu.edu/wise or call SUU Community Education at (435) 865-8259. For those who need assistance enrolling in a class, drop by their office at 136 W. University Boulevard, Suite 003, Cedar City, Utah.
