Principal's Message

Mustang Families,

Today is Tuesday, December 6, 2022.

Please be sure to scroll through the entire site today. We have updated our student of the month recipients, honoring the social science students this week, our art student of the month, and several athletes of the week as well.

Our World Language department continues to host “World Cup Mania” events throughout the month, which have been a wonderful opportunity for students to come together in camaraderie and excitement.

Our VAPA department begins hosting winter performances this week, with our instrumental music program concert Thursday, our drama department performance of Tartuffe on Thursday and Friday, and our upcoming choir concert on the 19th.

We have our athletic signing day next week on the 14th in the stadium at snack, and winter sports are well underway, with some early season successes below.

Have a wonderful week,

Ms. Alicia Foulk

Malia was selected for the Trabuco Hills Student of the Month Award in Economics because of her outstanding academic achievements. Her consistent demonstration of content knowledge as well as being a successful member of the volleyball team has strengthened her role as a model student-athlete here on campus. 

She is a great example of a student who always does her best. She is kind, polite, works hard and participates in class.

Cal Poly SLO bound Senior, Danica Brinkman, was awarded the Most Outstanding runner on the team award, senior, Claire Stuvland, received the Victory With Honor award, and freshmen: Anna Desormeau and Skylar Watts earned Future Pride Of The Mustangs awards.
