Tison Roo News 2017-18

Week of October 2nd

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.

We are off to a great start for the school year, and we hope your student comes to love Tison as much as we do!

The Tison Counselors will be kicking off our school-wide Random Acts of Kindness Week starting Tuesday, October 10th through Friday, October 13th! During this week, students will be issued tickets by teachers for their random acts of kindness. These tickets will be placed in a large drawing for a Pinata in honor of last month's [September] National Hispanic Heritage Month. Each day of our Random Acts of Kindness Week will carry a theme. Below are the themes for each day:

  • TUESDAY, OCTOBER 10 -- Side Hug a Friend
  • WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 11 -- Give a Compliment
  • THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12 -- Say "Thank You"
  • FRIDAY,OCTOBER 13 -- Mix It Up...Lunch w/ Different Friends

Please help remind your students of our Random Acts of Kindness week, and thank you for all your support of our programs.

We are in need of volunteers to help the PTA run the concession stand during home athletic events. We don't ask you to work during all three hours, instead we have 1 hour shifts available. If you have some fellow Tison parent buddies that you work well with, ask them to sign up too!

If you are interested in working the concession stands for athletic events, please use the links below to sign up:
