Tison Roo News 2017-18

Week of May 14th

As this will be the last Tison Middle School newsletter for the 2017-18 school year, I just want to say that it has been a privilege to serve you and your student at Tison!

We hope you have a fun and restful summer and if your student is a 6th or 7th grader, we look forward to seeing you back here in August. To the 8th grade students and parents -- we have enjoyed having you be a part of Tison for the last two years and wish you lots of luck as a high school student.
