Gavin’s story: Be gone, summer slide! 

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.
