Tison Roo News 2017-18

Week of December 11th

Welcome to the Tison Middle School newsletter -- as a Tison parent, we want to ensure your involvement in your student's middle school life, and one way to do that is to keep you informed on what's going on at Tison.


This newsletter typically gets emailed to you on a weekly basis, and usually on a Friday afternoon. If you know a Tison parent who should be getting this newsletter and is not, please have him or her email Leah Greer at lgreer@weatherfordisd.com. Also, if you have any questions or concerns over any information from the newsletter, please email Mrs. Greer.


Sincerely,

Eric Sams

Tison Middle School Principal
