Hello Goodbye Assembly

There are many awesome traditions and celebrations at THS, but one of the most special is our Hello Goodbye Assembly. In addition to student performances from Ashely Bahena, Laila Jones, Choir, Cheer, and Dance, Dr. Tuin performed a spoken word and joined in Dance Team's routine.

Seniors had opportunity to give teachers and school staff a flower as a last goodbye before graduation. This was an assembly filled with hugs, tears, smiles, and laughter.

Congrats to the class of 2023!🖤❤️
