Principal's Message

Mustang Families,

Please take some time today to review all the information on the newsletter site. Today is Monday, April 22nd, 2024.

Last week was a busy week on campus, during the school day as well as evening events. This week there is a band fundraiser and solo performances in the gym Friday night, as well as our art gallery on Wednesday. The art gallery will be open in our MPR for students to go to with their classes, and then open to the public after school hours. We hope you stop by and see the incredible work Mr. Berry and Ms. Fait’s students have completed this year. Our Spring Musical production of Les Misérables has two shows this week as well, on Thursday at Friday night at 7 pm in our theater. I was able to see the show last Friday and it is amazing. I recommend everyone that can get a ticket to come out and support our students, Mrs. Finnerty, and Mr. Haro. The production is truly remarkable.

Spring Sports are entering playoff season now. Our boys’ volleyball team travels to Corona (Santiago) on Thursday evening for their first match. We are anticipating other sports to enter playoffs as well, with track league finals this week. Best of luck to all our spring athletes!

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.

Mustang Golf

Mustang Golf will have a two week camp at Lake Forest Golf and Practice Center in June and a six week summer league at Oso Creek Golf Course focusing on the development of skills and competitive play.  All returning players (girls & boys) and new players are welcome.  Sign-ups will open on the student webstory on May 1st - sign up early to secure your spot. 

This camp will also serve as an alternative to tryouts and better enable coaches to evaluate players and determine their rosters for the 2024-2025 school year. 

Players are strongly encouraged to participate in summer camp & league play.  If a player is unable to participate in the camp, they will need to contact the coach if they wish to be on the team in order to be evaluated and placed on the roster.   The season of competition for fall sports (girls golf) begins at the start of August which is prior to the school year.

Mark was chosen as student of the month because he is an active participant in class which makes him such a wonderful student to have. When his teacher is  speaking, he is engaged, nodding, responding and asking meaningful questions. An active listener, like Mark, is not as common as one would imagine. When his classmates are speaking, he listens with intent. He is always on task and working hard. Mark is also so kind to both his peers and his teachers. He always has a smile on his face. Mark is such a lovely student to have in class.

Audrey is a ray of sunshine in our class. Audrey's positivity radiates immensely. Not only is Audrey a kind, positive individual, but also hardworking and intelligent. Audrey gives their all into everything they do and Audrey's grade reflects that. They are responsible and take control of their learning. We are lucky to have Audrey in class.

We are looking forward to celebrating your accomplishments with you this coming May!  These events listed are ASB sponsored events.  Ticket sales for the Senior Outing and the Senior Lunch will go on sale at the Student Store closer to their dates.

Graduation Banners

Congratulate your student on their graduation, college acceptance, military enlistment, trade school enrollment or other future plans by offering customized banners that will be displayed on campus the week of graduation activities. Banners will be available for pick up after the graduation ceremony of in the school office the following week. To order, please go to


All seniors must meet all SVUSD graduation requirements in order to participate in the Graduation Ceremony.  I encourage you to monitor your senior’s grades carefully during this important part of the school year.  Any failure of a required course will automatically prevent a student from participating in the Graduation Ceremony.

Seniors must follow all school policies up through and including graduation.  All financial and disciplinary obligations, as well as attendance at all mandatory graduation practices, must be fulfilled or participation in senior activities including the Graduation Ceremony, will be jeopardized.

Demerit Recovery and Graduation

In order to avoid jeopardizing participation in senior activities and the Graduation Ceremony, all senior students must have resolved all discipline consequences.  If there are any questions regarding behavior contracts or any outstanding discipline consequences, students should follow up with an Assistant Principal of Supervision. Each hour of discipline consequences equals 1 demerit.  Any senior student with demerits on their record must serve all assigned hours until their demerits equal ZERO (0) before they will be allowed to attend Prom, participate in any senior activities, or Graduation Ceremony.  A schedule of assigned hours of discipline consequences along with the intended days to serve must be arranged with the Supervision Office immediately. 

Senior Pranks

Please note this word of caution about “senior pranks.”  Some of our students in the past without any disciplinary history have participated in a senior prank that resulted in lost opportunities and privileges.  There is no such thing as a safe senior prank. Consequences could include loss of senior activities and may jeopardize participation in the Graduation Ceremony.  If you become aware of such a plan, please inform the school and do not allow your senior to participate.  Students should never be on school grounds outside of school hours for any reason other than official school business or activities. 

Please help your senior make good choices to ensure their participation in all senior activities and the Graduation Ceremony.

 Suspensions and Expulsions

Be advised that the Saddleback Valley Unified School District has a strict policy against the use or possession of drugs, alcohol, and weapons, and any other expellable offenses outlined by the California Education Code.  Please note that if a student commits ANY expellable offense and is recommended for expulsion, they will be excluded from Prom, ALL senior activities, extra-curricular activities, and the Graduation Ceremony during the expulsion.  Any student that is suspended and/or placed on a behavior contract for violations such as drug/alcohol possession or use, bullying or harassment, committing an obscene act, and possession of a weapon or dangerous object, within the last 45 days of school will not be able to attend prom, senior activities, and may be excluded from the Graduation Ceremony. 

Behavior Expectations for the Graduation Ceremony

Students attempting to disrupt the integrity and grace of the Graduation Ceremony will be removed during the ceremony immediately.

Your support in discussing the importance of maintaining appropriate behavior through the end of the year as well as the severity of consequences for violating our behavior expectations is greatly appreciated and can ensure a positive experience during this exciting time for your family. 

We want to ensure that all of our graduating seniors have the memorable experience of participating in their High School Graduation and your support is greatly appreciated. 

I look forward to seeing you at graduation on May 30th.
