This Week At Tustin High...

Who's House? Our House!

Congratulations to Tiller Football for bringing the trophy back home this past Friday night. It was a nail-biting game, but the Tillers came out victorious. Thank you to everyone who came out in support of our cross-town rivalry game and cheered on our team. It was such an explosive and positive energy and really exemplified that we are ALL part of the Tiller Team.

We hope you all will join us for our next home game vs. El Dorado this THURSDAY night at 7:00 PM.

This past week our Flag Football team made history! On Monday, they played their first game ever and brought home a win and the game ball. Flag football plays again this week on Monday and Wednesday.

Be sure to check out our Upcoming Dates and Events below for all athletics games and times. This season our Volleyball, Water Polo, Cross Country, and Tennis teams are working hard and showing their Tiller spirit pride. Come out and support our Tillers!

It was a busy week at Tustin High. This past week we also had the pleasure of welcoming Dr. Johnson, our TUSD Superintendent, to campus for classroom visits. Our students showed a remarkable level of engagement and enthusiasm for their learning journey. Active collaboration and teamwork were evident as they tackled challenges together, with our dedicated teachers guiding them in smaller groups to achieve their educational goals.

We couldn't be prouder of the incredible dedication and focus our students bring to the classroom each day and the dedication of our Tiller teachers. Their passion for learning is truly inspiring! Tillers are champions on the field, court, pool, AND in the classroom.

Here's to another exception week.

Go Tillers!
