SUSV IS EXCITED TO INTRODUCE NEW LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR!       

Community Builders: Kentucky Shakers at South Union, available fall & spring, introduces students to the unique culture and history of the Kentucky Shakers. Students explore the natural resources and human capital needed to grow the village from a collection of frontier farms into a substantial village. This program highlights the life of Brother David Barnett, African American Shaker and expert brick mason.  

To Grandmother’s House We Go! Southern Culture & Foodways, an old favorite, this program continues by popular demand. Students participate in churning, grinding, and mixing as they explore southern culture through food selection and meal preparation.

Each program will include an opportunity to visit the new “touch please” room where students can rummage through bureaus and peek under beds in an effort to discover who called the room home!
