Principal's Message

Mustang Families,

Please take some time today to review all the information on the newsletter site. Today is Monday, March 27th, 2023.

Our Aeries portal is currently open for grades 9-11 to enter and adjust their course selections for 2023-2024. We invite families to review the information on the Guidance page, our course handbook and list, and ensure your student is registered for the appropriate classes for next year. The Guidance team will be meeting with students following Spring Break to confirm course selections. This information is critical because it helps THHS determine staffing and needs for next year. ROP course registration has also begun this week.

Information was sent out to Seniors and their families on 3/17 regarding end of year expectations, as well as upcoming Senior events. We are looking forward to celebrating the class of 2023!

Our Spring athletics are in season. The weather has resulted in quite a few cancellations and rescheduled contests, but our athletes are enjoying quite a few successes. We appreciate the flexibility and patience of our students and families while we work around our unusually wet weather.

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

Ms. Alicia Foulk
