Week of August 7, 2023

From Dr. B...

Welcome Back Tillers!

We are so excited to begin the 2023-24 school year. We hope you had a restful and enjoyable summer break. As the new principal of Tustin High School, I am delighted to extend a warm and enthusiastic welcome to both our returning students and those joining the Tiller family for the first time.

As your principal, I am thrilled to lead this remarkable team of dedicated educators, staff, students, and families. Together, we will continue to foster a culture of collaboration, respect and empathy, and ensure that every member of Tustin High School feels valued and supported.

This year we are focused on the role we all play in creating a school environment where everyone feels a part of the Tiller Team. Each and every one of us is an integral part of building a cohesive and supportive team with high expectations for all. In the classroom, TEAM stands for:

T - Think Critically

E - Effectively Communicate

A - Advance Literacy

M - Manage Time & Resouces

We believe in the power of unity and working together towards common goals. Our shared commitment to academic excellence, personal growth, and a caring and positive school climate is the foundation of our Tiller Team. We are all connected by this shared vision of creating a vibrant and inclusive school community.

Please mark your calendars for our upcoming Back to School Night, on Wednesday, August 30th at 6:00 PM, where you will have the opportunity to meet your Tiller's teachers, explore the campus, and connect with fellow parents and guardians.

We are proud of our Tiller history and look forward to a thriving future. Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of educating your children. Together we will see all and serve all who walk through our gates.

Here's to a successful and memorable year ahead.

Go Tillers!

Dr. Heather Bojorquez

Parents & guardians, we look forward to partnering with you this year in supporting your student's success. Attendance is foundational to student success and we need your support in ensuring that your student attends school daily and arrive to school on time. Please see below for information regarding attendance office procedures.

We are excited to share two amazing district wide programs that reward students who demonstrate exemplary attendance. One lucky THS student with exemplary attendance in grades 9-12 will win a FREE LAPTOP, thanks to a partnership with Data Impressions and Microsoft!

TUSD SENIORS with exemplary attendance will have an opportunity to win a brand new car from Toyota of Tustin through its "Drive for Student Engagement" program. All seniors who maintain daily engagement, outstanding attendance when healthy, and positive behavior at each of TUSD’s high schools will be eligible for entrance in a lottery for a new Toyota Corolla generously donated by Tustin Toyota!
