Week of August 27th

Welcome Back! We are incredibly excited to begin our 21st school year here at Tison! Our motto for this school year is #TWAHCD -- "Your Thoughts become your Words, your words become your Actions, your actions become your Habits, your habits become your Character, and your character becomes your Destiny.

Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. We want and value your involvement and support in your child’s education! Your active participation is key to the success of your young Roo during his/her middle school years.

Please remember to check Skyward often to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, and assessments. This school e-newsletter will help you stay informed on school activities, as well as other events and happenings. It is usually emailed and posted on Skyward on a weekly basis except for major holiday breaks and for times when no new information needs to be shared.

Again, we welcome you to Tison Middle School and to our wonderful learning community. Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!

Tison Word for August -- WISDOM

WISDOM...Finding Out What You Should Do and Doing It

Since this is the beginning of the school year, it’s always best to set some goals for the year! Some of us know exactly what we want to do as we get older and some of us are still trying to figure it out. If Wisdom is finding out what to do and doing it, then make a list of 5 people in your life that you admire then ask them questions about the things they did as they grew up that made a difference in their life.

If you have questions or concerns you need to share with Mrs. Brown or Mrs. Kelly, please fill out a pink slip in the front office.
