Tison Roo News 2017-18
Week of September 11th
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 email@example.com. Also, if you have any questions or concerns over any information from the newsletter, please email Mrs. Greer.
We are off to a great start for the school year, and we hope your student comes to love Tison as much as we do!

DIVERSITY EMPHASIS: National Hispanic Heritage Month
September begins our diversity emphasis with the celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month which runs September 15 through October 15. During this time, we recognize the contributions made and the important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate their heritage and culture.
Family Activity Idea: have a family scavenger hunt for acts of kindness within the family, and then reward the choice of a night's activity to the winner!
Kindness is a social medicine that is best applied on an individual basis.

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Please start saving your BOX TOPS for Tison! We will collect them all year long, and you can send them in an envelope or baggie with your student and have him or her take them to the main office. We appreciate your BOX TOP support!
NEED CONCESSION STAND VOLUNTEERS
We are in need of volunteers to help the PTA run the concession stand during home athletic events. We don't ask you to work during all three hours, instead we have 1 hour shifts that we need filled. If you have some fellow parent buddies that you work well with, ask them to help!
If you are interested in working the concession stands for athletic events, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org -- please specify whether you are interested in working concessions for the boys athletic games or the girls athletic games.
Thank you for your help!
