SICKLE DAY INFORMATION FOR PARENTS

SICKLE Day is a Tison tradition that takes place a few times every year where students can eat "foods of minimal value" all day long. The term "SICKLE" started as a mix of the words "suckers" and "pickles". SICKLE Day is a school fundraiser -- all kinds of candy and pickles will be on sale all day and most items cost $1 or less.

We need your help at Tison Middle School!
