Students at J.N. Ervin Elementary School met with their tutors at Toyota who have helped them read through TutorMate, an online tutoring program that connects volunteers with students to engage in virtual readings.
“We are here at J.N. Ervin to stay,” said Wendy Walker with Toyota. “We have fallen in love with this school and want to spend a lot of time here and feed into everything positive here and help these students flourish.”
Toyota also donated 2,000 books to the school’s library at the end-of-year celebration on May 25.
“We are thankful to have this joint partnership with Toyota and TutorMate to support the scholars at J.N. Ervin Elementary School,” said Tom Hayden with Dallas ISD’s Volunteer and Partnership Services. “We look forward to the positive impact this partnership will continue to have on achievement.”
