TISON PTA NEWS
Her message to everyone -- KEEP COLLECTING BOX TOPS!
The UIL coaches are truly thankful for and very proud of all the Tison students who made the commitment to work hard all year and then do their best at the UIL academic meet on February 14 and 17. For their effort, they earned an ice cream social!

DON'T MISS OUT ON A TISON YEARBOOK!
Pre-ordering a yearbook is the best method to guarantee your student will receive one this year, since the yearbook staff uses pre-order sales to determine how many to have printed. The yearbook staff will have a small number printed for those who choose to purchase in May, but quantities will be limited and the cost of the yearbook will be at its most expensive - $50.
To order your student a yearbook now, you can go to www.balfour.com and choose "Tison Middle School". If you would rather pay by cash or check, you can pick up an application at the Tison front office or just email the yearbook sponsor, Leslie Fenton (firstname.lastname@example.org), for instructions.
Want to know what a Tison Yearbook looks like? Watch the video below -- it contains a sampling of pages from the 2016 Tison yearbook:
TISON STACI STUDENTS RECEIVE A RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS
While finishing up their breakfast, Ms. Parsons, the STACI teacher, was informed by their waitress that the bill for the very large table (which is usually split up among the families and teachers) had been completely covered by an unknown fellow R & K breakfast eater.
Ms. Parson's still has no idea who paid their breakfast bill that morning, but that random act of kindness touched the hearts of every STACI teacher, parent, and student in attendance, and their hope is to get the chance to pay it forward!
