Product delivery for items purchased will be the week of April 24th.

DON'T MISS OUT ON A TISON YEARBOOK!

Pre-ordering a yearbook is the best method to guarantee your student will receive one this year, since the yearbook staff uses pre-order sales to determine how many to have printed. The yearbook staff will have a small number printed for those who choose to purchase in May, but quantities will be limited and the cost of the yearbook will be at its most expensive - $50.


To order your student a yearbook now, you can go to www.balfour.com and choose "Tison Middle School". If you would rather pay by cash or check, you can pick up an application at the Tison front office or just email the yearbook sponsor, Leslie Fenton (lfenton@weatherfordisd.com), for instructions.


Want to know what a Tison Yearbook looks like? Watch the video below -- it contains a sampling of pages from the 2016 Tison yearbook:

COINS 4 COOK'S -- MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, and since Cook's Children's Medical Center handles the most severe cases for our area, we would like to help them raise funds for their efforts. Money raised during this campaign will go toward offering "fun therapy" using clowns for children who are there for abuse and other reasons.


Tison classrooms will compete for the most funds raised, and the class that wins will get a free field trip for a "behind-the-scenes" look at Cook's -- including a visit to their TV studio, sound lab, canine unit, and also participate in "Build a Bear" to give to a Cook's patient.


There have been Tison students who have benefited from Cook's so let's pay it forward! The campaign starts Monday, April 3rd and will run through Thursday, April 13th. Students should bring their loose change to their 6th PERIOD teacher. If you have any questions, please email the Tison counselor, Gwen Ward, at gward@weatherfordisd.com.
