Tison Roo News 2017-18

Week of November 13th

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!


Sincerely,

Eric Sams

Tison Middle School Principal

Native American Heritage Month

What started at the turn of the century as an effort to gain a day of recognition for the significant contributions the first Americans made to the establishment and growth of the U.S., has resulted in a whole month being designated for that purpose.


In addition, our Six Weeks Emphasis continues to be RESPONSIBILITY.


The following videos are provided to help educate and celebrate different aspects of our Native American Culture.
