Murray Middle School seeks tutors

Murray Middle School is seeking volunteer tutors for its Pilot One-on-One Program, which serves academically-challenged students. 

Tutors are needed Monday through Friday for one to three hours from 11:08 a.m.-12:08 p.m., 12:12-1:04 p.m. and 1:08-2 p.m. Pick a day and time for the semester that meets your schedule.

All volunteers must attend a 90-minute training and orientation session prior to starting tutoring. 

“At this session, we will describe the program, review Murray policies and complete a background check form,” said Cindy Thrasher, coordinator for the Pilot One-on-One Tutoring Program. “We can schedule a training session most days at 8 a.m. or 2:30 p.m. upon request.”

Now in its 12th year, the tutor program focuses on students who that typically do not have strong home support. Students work with a tutor individually each day. Both the tutor and student study English, math, social studies or science together. Students also work on developing and improving their study skills.

For more information about the program or to sign up for a training session, contact Cindy Thrasher at (651) 293-8740 or
