NEW class at TDS - Journalism with Mrs. Frazier
TDS is offering a new Journalism class in 2023. Students will participate in a nationwide program with PBS and their Student Reporting Labs. The class allows students to learn about media, social media, and broadcasting. The class focuses on teaching media literacy skills, increasing civic engagement, all while allowing students to activate and amplify their voices through culturally responsive projects.
Mrs. Frazier is teaching the class during 5th period in rm. 511. Talk to your counselor if you’re interested in our Journalism class.

If this includes you, we see you and our hearts are with you. Here are some holiday tips from “Ele’s Place” for navigating the coming weeks. If you need additional support, please reach out to your TDS support staff. Let’s try to survive this grief wave together.

RANDI FOMBONA - Class of 2021
What is your favorite memory from TDS?
My favorite memory from this school was when we had the mental health awareness event.. how everyday we had something different it was so much fun and very alarming with information about mental health.
What advice do you have for current TDS students?
Just keep pushing, it's all worth the graduation.
What are your current plans (if you are just now graduating) What are you doing now (if you graduated previously)?
I was planning on college but haven't accomplished it.. so I was Job hunting while working on getting my California ID.. month later and finally I'm working at Walmart till further notice. Lol
Hey Aztecs if I can graduate, then trust me so can you.
