Tison Roo News 2018-19

Week of December 17th

As we wind down the first semester of this school year, I'd like to thank you for allowing us to care for and teach your student here at Tison.


On behalf of our staff, we hope you have a great winter break with your children, family, and friends. We look forward to continuing to work together as a team with you to provide your student with the best educational experience here at Tison Middle School. There is no greater gift than to have a positive impact on a child’s life.


Sincerely,

Eric Sams

Tison Middle School Principal
