Free Tutoring for Military Connected Students

Did you know that your military students have 24/7 access to free tutoring which is usually $20.00 an hour?


Military students have access to free online tutoring through tutor.com. The students can access the tutoring 24/7 – even during the school day. Tutor.com connects the student with a live tutor who can help with a homework problem or teach the concept from the beginning. Students can also upload essays and get feedback. This is a nice resource to have and many of our military families could benefit. Please encourage teachers and students to use this free resource.

Water Drive for Hurrican Victims

Our hearts go out to all our neighbors, friends, and family members impacted by the hurricane. TMS Beta is sponsoring a WATER DRIVE – bottled water and gallon jugs - next week Monday, October 17 through Friday, October 21st. We have spoken with Beta friends in the Lumberton area and have learned that they may not have running water for up to a month. They need water for basic needs – drinking water, food prep, bathing, and flushing toilets. Your contributions will be passed on to service groups in Robeson and Lenoir counties to be distributed to residents in these areas with the greatest needs.
