Tison Roo News 2018-19

Week of October 29th

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.


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 Family Access.


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!


Sincerely,

Eric Sams

Tison Middle School Principal

RE:Connect WORD FOR OCTOBER -- CONTENTMENT

Be content with what you have;

rejoice in the way things are.

When you realize there is nothing lacking,

the whole world belongs to you.


– Lao Tzu

REMINDER TO STUDENTS:

If you see someone you are concerned about, you should report it to the counselor's office.
