At Milltown Elementary School, students can enrol in a special camp at the school over the summer that focuses on helping them maintain literacy and numeracy over the two-month break.
Gavin wasn’t able to attend the camp to help combat “summer slide” – regressing on academics during the summer break.
But he was offered tutoring through Sylvan Learning Centre. He was able to attend nine in-person tutoring sessions this summer. With Sylvan, the goal is to master 1 skill per class.
Gavin mastered a whopping 38 skills!
Success like this is possible thanks to generous United Way supporters.
