This Week At Tustin High...
Our admin team had the pleasure to visit every classroom this week. In the classroom, teachers and students are setting the stage for a successful academic year. Together, we are building a Tiller Team that is Respectful, Engaged, and Determined - Go Big RED!
This week we also began our athletic competitions with Volleyball and Football. The spirit and enthusiasm of Tiller fans at the volleyball game were amazing to experience. Our ASB students worked hard to welcome back every Tiller at our first assembly where we all enjoyed performances from our Tiller Band, Cheer, and Dance Teams. We are off to a great start, the Tiller spirit is strong - way to go Tiller Team!
This week I would like to extend a personal invitation to our Tiller families to join me for a brief Meet & Greet before our first ELAC and Title 1 Parent Meetings. We will meet in the THS Library at 5:45 PM. I hope to see many Tiller parents and guardians there as we launch a new school year. YOU are a huge part of our Tiller Team and your input is extremely valuable to all of us at Tustin High.
We have lots of activities going on this week. Check out the calendar below and get out there and support our teams! Our first full week culminates this Friday at our annual rivalry game vs. Foothill. This year we are the visiting team and will be on the visitor's side, but I know we will all turn up, support our team, and rock our Tiller Pride! Check out our new t-shirts sold in the student store for $10. Pride...team....support...family...let's get out there and show what it means to be a Tiller!
