Get Involved:

The Tison Parent Teacher Association (PTA) provides a great avenue to get involved and support our students & staff. There are numerous opportunities for you to enhance the quality of education & build a strong school culture (recognition efforts, teacher appreciation, athletic event support, literacy building etc.). We hope you’ll join us next year: https://txpta.secure.force.com/JoinPTA/

On behalf of the entire staff at TMS, I want to say “thank you” and have a wonderful summer!
