Tison Roo News 2017-18

Week of February 12th

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.

UIL Quad County Academic Meet

Tison students who are participating in the UIL Quad County Meet on Friday, February 16th will be leaving Tison on a bus at 8:30 AM to travel to Wheat Middle School in Cleburne. The first events start at 9:00 AM with the last event ending at 5:00 PM. Students should be boarding the departure bus back to Tison around 5:30 PM and arriving back around 6:00 PM.

Parents are more than welcome to come and support their student before their contest session and even check him/her out to take home as soon as he or she is done competing. If parents would like to take their student home with them instead of waiting for all events to end, then there will be a Tison sign-out sheet for parents/guardians in the cafeteria at the Tison table. Parents MUST sign-out their student at the Tison table before leaving with their student.

Students participating in the UIL Academic Meet are required to have a permission form turned in to their UIL coach by Friday, February 9th. Students should ask their UIL coach for a copy of this permission or you can access the form using the button below:
