PARENT MEETING FOR ARENA SCHEDULING

There will be a parent meeting for arena scheduling on April 18th at 6:00 PM at the Ninth Grade Center. Arena scheduling opens for 8th grade the following morning at 6:30 AM for those who register off-campus and at 7:30 AM for those who would rather register here at Tison. (Please check in at the main office first.)


The window for registering will close on April 22nd. Many class choices are made on a "first come, first serve basis" so it is important to attend the parent meeting and to register as quickly as possible.


If you would like more information on "arena scheduling" please contact Gwen Ward (Tison Counselor) at gward@weatherfordisd.com. The WISD video below can also help explain "arena scheduling":
