Tison Roo News 2018-19

Week of September 10th

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.

Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. We want and value your involvement and support in your child’s education! Your active participation is key to the success of your young Roo during his/her middle school years.

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 on a weekly basis except for major holiday breaks and for times when no new information needs to be shared.

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!


Eric Sams

Tison Middle School Principal
