Principal's Message

Mustang Families,

I hope this message finds you well. I wanted to take a moment to invite you all to an exciting event happening this Tuesday during flex time in the gym - the Club Expo! This is a fantastic opportunity for you to explore the various clubs and organizations available at our school. Whether you're interested in sports, art, science, or anything in between, there's bound to be a club that suits your interests. So, mark your calendars and be sure to swing by the gym on Tuesday!

But that's not all we have in store for you this week. On Tuesday, we also have our girls' volleyball game. Come out and support our talented athletes as they showcase their skills on the court. 

Wednesday brings another exciting event - our girls' flag football game. Watching these athletes compete is always a thrill, so be sure to come out and cheer them on as well. 

On Friday, we have a home football game. Gather your friends and classmates, and come support our team as they give their all on the field. 

 I would also like to take a moment to congratulate two outstanding individuals - Eric Wang and Crystal Liu, our 2024 National Merit Semifinalists. Their hard work and dedication have paid off, and they deserve all the recognition for this incredible achievement. Well done, Eric and Crystal!

Remember to read through the newsletter for important updates and announcements. It's a valuable resource to stay informed about all the exciting things happening at our school. Also, make sure to keep an eye out for what our talented Med Sci and Architecture students are up to. They continue to impress us with their creativity and innovation.

I wish you all a fantastic week ahead. Let's make the most of these incredible opportunities and show our school spirit in everything we do!

Ms. Alicia Foulk

Mustang Families,

THHS PTSA has proposed the City of Mission Viejo rezone Santa Margarita Parkway by the school to a School Zone. There is an entrance/exit to the school from Santa Margarita Parkway where the three lanes of traffic have a current speed limit of 45 mph. Students use this entrance/exit via ebikes, bicycles, and walking to access the school, all while cars are also entering and exiting the area. Cars line up along Santa Margarita to turn into the school property. This decreases the visibility of those cars trying to exit the school lot into three lanes of traffic. This is a huge safety concern to our school community and this area should be a School Zone with reduced speeds in place while children are present. The City of Mission Viejo Traffic Commission will meet on Friday, September 22nd to discuss this proposal. We hope you will support these efforts by emailing Mario Gutierrez at your support to make Santa Margarita Parkway along Trabuco Hills High School a School Zone. Please copy so we know who has sent in messages.

Thank you,

Keri Baert, PTSA President

Med-Sci Cheerio Breakfast
