Tison Roo News 2017-18

Week of September 4th

What a great first week of school! We are super excited about the 6th graders and 6th grade teachers joining Tison this year as well as getting to utilize the awesome addition and renovations that happened to Tison over the last year. We hope that your student is just as excited and ready for great things to happen during the 2017-2018 school year!

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!

Tison counselor's corner

Kim Brown is the newest Tison counselor. She transferred from the Ninth Grade Center to assist Ms. Ward with the extra workload from having an extra grade. We are so happy she's now at Tison!

DIVERSITY EMPHASIS: National Hispanic Heritage Month

September begins our diversity emphasis with the celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month which runs September 15 through October 15. During this time, we recognize the contributions made and the important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate their heritage and culture.

The recent efforts of those in the Hispanic community to help with search-and-rescue in Houston and in surrounding areas affected by Hurricane Harvey have been a tremendous help in those communities. Way to go, amigos!


Each six weeks during the advisory period, we will be focusing on different aspects of character education. Below is a flyer created by Nidia Grimes (Seguin Elementary) that provides details on the profile of a WISD learner as well as the focus topic for each six weeks. Below is the Character Presentation for Weatherford ISD this year. A focus on KINDNESS will be the topic this first six weeks.

Welcome to Tison for the 2017-2018 school year! We are growing our Tison PTA and would love to have your support this school year...and if you have the chance to volunteer we would greatly appreciate that as well! However, it is not mandatory to volunteer if you join Tison PTA -- just the support of your membership is enough!

The following people were elected to the 2017-2018 Executive Board during the May elections:

  • President -- open
  • VP Hospitality -- Frances Withaeger
  • VP Membership --Amanda Metzing
  • VP Budget -- Patricia Thompson
  • VP Programs -- open
  • Secretary -- Susan Tarbay
  • Treasurer -- open
  • Parliamentarian -- open
  • Council Rep -- Tina Loa
  • Boxtops -- Alycia Nelson
  • Concessions -- open


The concession stand for home sporting events has been Tison PTA's only fundraiser, so it is very important. Working the concession stand may sound intimidating, but it doesn't have to be. It can be pretty fun, but effective communication is key. If you are interesting in helping with the concession stand, please click on the link below and complete the form:


We will be needing parent volunteers to work the concession stands for the upcoming home football & volleyball games as well as first school dance coming up on Friday, September 15th!


Please start saving your BOX TOPS for Tison! We will collect them all year long, and you can send them in an envelope or baggie with your student and have him or her take them to the main office. We appreciate your BOX TOP support!
