Principal's Message

Mustang Families,

Please take some time today to review all the information on the newsletter site. Today is Tuesday, February 21, 2023.

We have begun our construction on our pool! Please be advised of the notification that was sent regarding the fencing and adjustment to our bike routes on campus. Remind your student to park bikes only at the racks, and be sure to lock them.

Spring sports are underway, with quite a few events on our campus this week. Be sure to come out to our fields and cheer on our athletes. Athletics schedules are updated frequently. Please consult with the appropriate team for any changes or updates.

Kylee Golz and Henry Sturn were both victorious this weekend at the CIF Masters Meet and named champions for the event. Congratulations to them and to the four wrestlers competing this weekend in Bakersfield—it’s the most in school history!

I was also able to attend last Thursday’s baseball game against Newport Harbor. The game ended in exciting fashion, with Bobby Gray hitting a walk-off home run!

We invite you to scroll through this page for highlights, student recognitions, and more!

Ms. Alicia Foulk

Mustang Learning Center

This is an opportunity for students to work directly with THHS teachers and peer tutors for academic support (various subjects - English, Math, Science, etc.).

Hours: Mondays at Lunch

Tuesday-Friday 7:45-8:30AM & lunch

Location: Library (blue lab)

We are excited to share that construction on our pool has begun.

Due to the increase in trucks and other vehicles in the area, the entire drive between the 300 building and tennis courts will be blocked to all traffic. Attached is a map outlining the expected bike routes for students to follow. Please review this information with your students and let them know they will not be able to ride bikes off Rancho Santa Margarita parkway into our campus. They will need to ride along the perimeter of the school to the front bike rack or the larger racks located next to the boys locker room.  Please also remind students that they must walk their bikes on all campus sidewalks and through the interior of campus.

We apologize in advance for the inconvenience this may cause, and ask students and  families to plan accordingly. We have already briefed our staff and made adjustments to our internal procedures for evacuation and emergency routes during this project.

Mustangs Have Sportsmanship #BetheChange

Sportsmanship is simple, treat others how you would want to be treated. Respect the game and everyone participating including student-athletes, coaches, officials, and spectators. Education-based athletics is more than winning, it’s about academic development, equity, and character.
