Tison Roo News 2017-18

Week of January 15th

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.

2018 Tison Geography Bee

The Tison Middle School Geography Bee will be held on January 18, 2018 in the Tison cafeteria. The Bee will begin at 9:05 am and should conclude at 10:55 am at the very latest. We proudly invite you to come and join us as we watch these gifted contestants engage in what should be a very competitive competition.

The winner of the Tison Middle School Geography Bee will advance to the next level of competition, a written examination to determine state competitors. The winner will also compete in the Weatherford ISD Geography Bee to be held later this year in May. This particular bee will see the winners from each campus compete against one another to see who will be the champion for Weatherford ISD.
