Thank you to tutors!
Thank you to all of the tutors who supported our students in the Pilot One-on-One Tutoring program at Murray Middle School during the academic year 2019-2020. Throughout the year, over 60 Murray students were tutored five days a week by 144 volunteers. This amounts to about 225 hours per week!
When the pandemic started in March our schedule changed to three hours per week. We continued to support all of our students by phone. The gift of time and patience was so appreciated! Residents and employees of the Bugle community, University of Minnesota and the University of St. Thomas college students were involved.
Thank you to everyone who participated financially to support the Pilot One-on-One Tutoring Program. This program has depended on donations over the last 13 years. The businesses and churches in the area, individuals (including many Murray alumni) and local foundations all made it possible because of their generous contributions.
Our students experienced improvement in their grades and gained a deeper understanding that they can do well in school, with confidence! With deep appreciation,
Cindy Vik Thrasher
