The Time to BUY a Yearbook is NOW

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 (lfenton@weatherfordisd.com), 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:

KAJEETS -- Mobile hotspot devices now available for checkout

Tison currently has 4 Kajeets for students to check out! Kajeets are mobile hotspots for students who might not have internet access outside of school to work on their school assignments.


They are easy to use, go through the WISD district filter, and each has 0.5 GB of data available on a daily basis. If you have a student that needs internet access to complete a project or any other educational related task, please email Leah Greer (lgreer@weatherfordisd.com) for more details.

FORT WORTH ZOO RUN

The 20th annual Zoo Run is coming up on Saturday, April 1st, and Tison is hoping to put together a school group for the event. What is the Zoo Run? You run, walk, or jog your way through the Zoo and surrounding neighborhoods to help support the Fort Worth zoo's conservation and education efforts. It is a 5K course that begins at 8 AM, but it is recommended to arrive earlier because of parking.


If you are interested in participating, just go to the Fort Worth Zoo Run website (https://www.fortworthzoo.org/zoo-run) and click to register. You will want to register as a team and find "Tison Middle School".


The registration cost if $20 and you must register by March 17th. Tison must have a minimum of 10 participants in order to keep our school registration.


If you have any questions, please email Erin Light at elight@weatherfordisd.com.
