MESSAGE FROM THE TISON PRINCIPAL

Dear Tison Families,


Construction continues to be ongoing on our campus. We appreciate your continued patience as we prepare our campus for the sixth graders to join us for the 2017-2018 school year. Our permanent front doors in our secured entryway are being installed this week. We thank you for your cooperation in following the new procedures for entering our building. Once our doors are installed and activated, we will have to buzz in each visitor during the school day. We will give you more information regarding this process when our system is fully functional.


Due to our football field still not being ready, our football schedule has changed again. We are not planning at this point for any football games to be played on the Tison field this season. We apologize for all of the changes, but our coaches have communicated well as soon as they have received the updated information. Both 7th Grade and 8th Grade football games will be played in Acton this week.


We are still looking for volunteers! We are continuing our PTA drive, and we would love it if you would join. The cost is $7.00. While you certainly can join and not volunteer, we are looking for parents and family members who would like to make copies and help teachers, serve on the PTA board, and help in our concession stands.


If you have not yet joined the Remind 101 group to receive updated announcements via text message, please see the information below on how to join.


You can join the Tison Principal Remind 101 group by using the following link:

Go Roos!

This past Wednesday (October 5th), the Tison Tennis Team faced the Brewer Bears and destroyed them. T3 came out ready to play since this was the last home match of the season! Tison officially won the match 18-1 losing only one match in a tie-breaker. We also won several extra matches. Congratulations to all who played and for everyone's great attitude!


Coach Light is VERY proud of you!!
