Summer Program 2022

The school year may have ended, but your School on Wheels tutoring sessions can keep on rolling! Summer is the perfect time to provide positive mentorship and shrink the gaps in your student’s learning while serving as a consistent support system.  

Throughout the past two school years, our students faced a variety of obstacles that contributed to unfinished learning. Students enrolled in low-income schools lost a cumulative average of seven months of learning due to the pandemic, as barriers to technology grew and lockdowns and quarantine caused chronic absences. This means that our students need your support now, possibly more than ever, to help lessen their educational gaps.

We have designed our Summer Fun on Wheels program to provide you with activities using a combination of social and emotional learning (SEL) and traditional academics like English Language Arts. Activities are designed to be completed in one session and adaptable to all grade levels! 

To navigate the program follow these steps:

Step 1: During your next tutoring session, spend time together exploring the three social and emotional traits and accompanying activities to choose the one you will want to work on together.

Step 2: Fill out the enrollment form to choose your trait. 

Step 3: Check your email for a message from with a link to your packet of activities. 

Step 4: Complete the activities over the next 3 sessions.

Step 5: After completing the packet, choose a prize! 

  • Choose from a list of prizes. We’ll mail one to the student and one to you! 
  • You will each also be entered into a raffle. Two tutors will win a bag full of School on Wheels swag, and ten students will win a gift card!
