Spring End Of Course Exams (EOC's)

In April, THS will be administering the state End of Course (EOC) Exams. During that week, students will be on a modified schedule with the EOCs being given in the morning each day. It is very important that testing students arrive by 7:45 as it is a timed test. Non-testing students will report at 10:00. Students who are scheduled to test will receive an email with their schedule and locations for testing.

The testing week schedule found below. Non-testing students do not need to report until 10:00. Any students that do not have transportation at 10:00 can ride the bus. The Cafeteria will be available for study hall from 7:45-10:0

Class of 2026

The Class of 2026 is responsible for the homecoming dance in the fall of 2023. In order to provide a great experience for the whole school, the class must generate funds to plan and implement the dance (raising money for homecoming has always been the responsibility of the freshman class). Our goal is for as many freshmen students (or their families) to donate $5 to the Freshmen Five Fundraiser. This money will be imperative for a successful 2023 homecoming dance.

Each student who donates $5 will be listed on the Class of 2026 banner that will be displayed in the school rotunda all next school year. Look for details in your email from 99Pledges to donate. Thanks in advance for your support!

Best Buddies

Best Buddies will meet on Thursday, April 20 after school in Room 316 until 3:30pm. We will celebrate the end of the year and our seniors!
