Principal's Message

Mustang Families,

Please be sure to scroll through the entire site today. We have updated our student of the month recipients and included athletes of the month as well!

This past week, our football team played their final game of the season, where they were outscored 57-51 to a very talented San Jacinto team. Congratulations to all of our fall athletes for representing THHS so well this season. Our Cross-Country athletes continue to compete, and both are having incredible seasons! The school spirit and sportsmanship of our athletes and spectators have made me proud. Winter Sports are underway, and we look forward to cheering our student athletes on throughout the season.

Our Thundering Mustang Marching unit looks to host the annual Tournament in the Hills this weekend. This large-scale event is the WBA regional championships, and our band is slated to perform at 6:15 pm in our stadium. Thank you in advance to all the parents and volunteers for helping host this incredible event.

As a reminder, AP exam sales end on 11/13 for a price of $105 dollars. Any exams purchased after this date will incur a $40 late fee. Please see Mr. Beck or Ms. Lindsay if you have questions on purchasing exams through the Total Registration site.

Have a wonderful week,

Ms. Alicia Foulk
