What we do at SOAR

We want SOAR to be the absolute best part of a students day every single time a student comes to SOAR.

The SOAR program offers a wide variety of experiences for students from 3 pm to 6 pm each day. These experiences include: homework assistance, Clubs, field trips, meals, and fun day Friday!


We desire for every child to grow academically while they are involved in the SOAR program. Through daily homework assistance we expect to see gains in reading levels, test scores, and the students overall reading enjoyment. 


One of the students favorite times of the day is when they get to go to different clubs. We have three focuses in which all of our clubs fall under: Fitness, STEM, and Creative Arts. 

Foozle Friday

We use Foozle Friday's to inject a bit of random fun into our program each week. Special guests, field trips, free choice activities, and movie days are just some of the activities you will see on Foozle Friday.

I have been working with Camp War Eagle since 2013 and currently serve as Site Director for SOAR at Parson Hills Elementary. I moved to Arkansas after graduating from the University of Central Oklahoma in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in Family Life Education with an emphasis on marriage and family. The things I enjoy most about my job at SOAR are providing opportunities for the students to try new things, creating an environment for new friendships and building relationships with the families. I love coming to work every day knowing that I will be reminded to laugh and appreciate the little things. My dream is that every student will leave the program knowing that they are cherished.
