"This 8th grade art assignment was a study in value. Students used only three colors, black, white and blue to create their value paintings. They had to come up with their own original idea for their composition. Some chose the bonsai tree in my class room as a focal point while others researched different subjects. Painting can be a little overwhelming for many students but this class did an exceptional job!"

-- Mr. Golightly (Tison Art Teacher)

Together against bullying — united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion. Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Make it ORANGE and make it end! What are your true colors when it comes to bullying? If you care about safe and supportive schools and communities make your color ORANGE on Unity Day. That’s the day everyone can come together – in schools, communities, and online – and send one large ORANGE message of support, hope, and unity to show that we are together against bullying and united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.

Individuals across the nation, and even world-wide, can participate in Unity Day.

Wear Orange: Make a statement!

ORANGE provides a powerful, visually compelling expression of solidarity,” said Paula Goldberg, Executive Director of PACER Center. “When hundreds of individuals in a school or organization wear orange, the vibrant statement becomes a conversation starter, sending the unified message to kids to know that they are not alone.”

Share Orange: Color our online world with orange!​

Gracie has been nominated by TWO different Tison staff members -- Mr. Craft & Mrs. Buckner -- to be recognized in the Tison newsletter! Here are their comments:

"Gracie is sweet and kind young lady. She always has a smile and says hello. I have caught her on numerous occasions helping other students because of her kind heart (Mr. Craft). Gracie is the All Star Captain. She leads the team with such grace and poise. She is always prepared and goes above and beyond for her team (Mrs. Buckner)."
