Principal's Message

Mustang Families,

Please take some time today to review all the information on the newsletter site. Today is Monday, April 17th, 2023.

As you look through, you will note we have many events occurring each evening this week. Two events I would like to highlight are Off the Wall’s production of Mean Girls, on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. The show is based off the award-winning musical and film (be advised there is some mature content and the show is recommended at PG-13). The case and crew have been putting in countless hours the last few months. The link to purchase tickets can be found here on the website. Our PTSA is also hosting a parent education night this Wednesday in our MPR. The event begins at 6 PM, with a film, dinner, and followed by a discussion lead by two of our own counselors. We hope to see you there!

We are also participating in the districtwide philanthropy project this year. It is a personal care drive, and the items collected will be donated to the SVUSD marketplace. Please consider sending your student with some of the items listed for donation.

Another event occurring this week will be during the school day, and that is the SVUSD Unified Games. We host this event each year as a way for the students at all of district Unified Champion schools to be able to come together in camaraderie and fun. Thank you in advance to the many THHS students and staff that put this event together, especially Kara Johnson.

This webpage also has more highlights, student recognitions, and detailed information on these events and more. Please scroll through to see all the incredible things happening at THHS.
