This Week At Tustin High...

Homecoming Week Recap!

Last week was a fantastic celebration of Tustin High School's rich tradition and Tiller Pride. The festivities kicked off with a series of exciting lunchtime activities and themed dress-up days that allowed students to immerse themselves in the vibrant Tiller spirit.

The highlight of the week was undoubtedly our Homecoming Assembly, where we paid tribute to our Fall sports athletes. The event featured stellar performances from our talented Tiller Band, Choir, Cheer, and Dance Teams, energizing the crowd in anticipation of the big game.

Thursday was all about showing off our Tiller Western Wear as we rallied behind our victorious Tiller Football team, who clinched a thrilling Homecoming win against Fountain Valley. We also had the honor of celebrating our 2023 Homecoming Royal Court and crowning our Homecoming Royals.

The Homecoming Week festivities concluded with a memorable Homecoming dance held in the lively Tiller Plaza on Saturday night. It was an evening filled with dancing, the company of friends, entertaining games, and delicious funnel cakes.

As we kickstart the 2023-24 school year, we're brimming with pride and optimism. While events like Homecoming are undoubtedly enjoyable, there's more to high school life. This week, we're hosting Club Rush during lunchtime, and we strongly encourage every Tiller to explore the wide array of activities, whether it's sports, clubs, or other engaging pursuits. Tustin Community is a vibrant and supportive community, and we invite you to be a part of the excitement by proudly displaying your Tiller Pride!

Go Tillers!
