TISON TENNIS NEWS

Tison Tennis has done it again! Officially winning their match 17-2, the Tison Tennis Team (T3) destroyed Hall last Tuesday (Mar 21). Aaron Hairston clenched the win for the team, although Devon Hairston and Lailah Beyl came in a close second when they won their tie-breaker in mixed doubles. Newcomers, Abbigale McBride and Kailee Swafford also walked away with wins on Tuesday. All of the Tison tennis players fought hard, and the three matches that Tison lost were extremely close. Everyone walked away with a win on Tuesday.


Congratulations T3! Your coach is so proud of you all.

TMS CHOIR FUNDRAISER

The Tison Middle School Choir is sponsoring a very important fundraiser.

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.
