Week of October 1st

Welcome Back! We are incredibly excited to begin our 21st school year here at Tison! Our motto for this school year is #TWAHCD -- "Your Thoughts become your Words, your words become your Actions, your actions become your Habits, your habits become your Character, and your character becomes your Destiny.


Please remember to check Skyward often to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, and assessments. This school e-newsletter will help you stay informed on school activities, as well as other events and happenings. It is usually emailed and posted on Skyward Family Access.


Again, we welcome you to Tison Middle School and to our wonderful learning community. Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!


Sincerely,

Eric Sams

Tison Middle School Principal

RE:Connect WORD FOR OCTOBER -- CONTENTMENT

Be content with what you have;

rejoice in the way things are.

When you realize there is nothing lacking,

the whole world belongs to you.


– Lao Tzu

REMINDER TO STUDENTS:

If you see someone you are concerned about, you should report it to the counselor's office.

RED RIBBON WEEK -- October 23rd through 31st

Big picture
The Red Ribbon Campaign® is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation, reaching millions of young people during Red Ribbon Week® each year.


WHAT IS RED RIBBON WEEK?

It is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. Show your personal commitment to a drug-free lifestyle through the symbol of the Red Ribbon, October 23 - 31st.


WHY?

The Red Ribbon Campaign® was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign® is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a DRUG - FREE AMERICA.


WHO?

National Family Partnership is the sponsor of the National Red Ribbon Week® Celebration. We are helping citizens across the country come together to keep children, families and communities safe, healthy and drug-free, through parent training, networking and sponsoring the National Red Ribbon Campaign® .
