The Pilot One-on-One Tutoring Program, which has been offered at Murray for nine years, will be cut from Murray’s program for next year unless the school can raise $53,400 to keep the program going.
Sixty-two students were served in the program in the 2016-17 academic year, under the tutelage of 114 volunteers (40 of them were from the community). After receiving Ds or failing grades prior to joining the program, students received As, Bs or Cs in 87 percent of their core classes (math, English, science and social studies).
This program has been working because its comprehensive approach and dedicated volunteers encourage, teach and love these kids. During the nine years the tutors have worked with 550 students.
If you would like to make a gift, please direct your contribution to Murray Middle School, 2200 Buford Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55108. Please note Pilot One-on-One Program in the memo field. Questions? Contact Cindy Thrasher at 651-293-8740, ext. 45232 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
