Your student will have the opportunity to take classes on a college campus, with curriculum specifically designed for your students’ age range. We have designed classes that will teach your Junior Mule both academic skills as well as important life skills. Junior Mule is intended for students enrolled in 1st through 5th grade for the 18-19 school year.  If you have any questions regarding Junior Mule, please contact Meeting and Conference Services at (660)543-4342.

Mini Mixers
Come and join the fun as a Mini-Mixer! A kitchen adventure awaits at the Out the Oven Baking Class.

Along with daily take home creations, Junior Mules will have a hands on experience while learning the basic principles when working with dough and batter.


Robot Wranglers
This course is designed to teach students about basic programming and robotic science in a fun and inventive way.


Broadway Basics
The theatre class will provide students a chance to experience the fun of being in a show!
