Tison Roo News 2017-18

Week of September 18th

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 lgreer@weatherfordisd.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!

Welcome to Tison for the 2017-2018 school year! We are growing our Tison PTA and would love to have your support this school year...and if you have the chance to volunteer we would greatly appreciate that as well! However, it is not mandatory to volunteer if you join Tison PTA -- just the support of your membership is enough!

The following people are part of the 2017-2018 Tison PTA Executive Board (pending elections for the president and treasurer):

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 available. If you have some fellow Tison parent buddies that you work well with, ask them to sign up too!

If you are interested in working the concession stands for athletic events, please use the links below to sign up:

Thank you for your help!
