Elevate Kids: Update on Summer School program

Meet Suzie Thomason, PHD, Assistant Professor of Education in Early Childhood at Evangel University. Dr. Thomason came to Elevate Branson several years ago wanting to do her dissertation on reading levels of children who live in weekly and extended stay motels. We were thrilled for her to do this and as a result, Dr. Thomason has been instrumental in creating our Summer School Program and After School Program as well.

We currently have 35 kids attending Summer School, three days a week through June and July. We are incredibly blessed to have Dr. Thomason on board and have seen great improvements in our kiddos with the phonics program she has put in place. Thank you, Dr. Thomason.

If you have any areas of giftedness and passion that you would be interested in helping with, please call Jeremy Weimer, our volunteer coordinator, at 417-593-2254 or visit us at

Elevate Branson's community prayer event set for July 26

Our next community wide prayer event will be on Friday, July 26, from 11 a.m.- 1 p.m.

What is a community prayer event? It is a gathering of individuals in the community who come together and pray for different segments of our community such as our local police department, fire fighters, our local churches, and many more. We know God has the power to transform these segments for the better of our community at large.

All are welcome to join us at the Elevate Branson campus, 310 Gretna Road.
