Message from Our Superintendent

Dear TUHSD Community,

We did it! We completed another year of academic excellence, sending an amazing group of talented and motivated students on to college and the workforce! We are very excited for the potential of our students and look forward to hearing about their accomplishments in the near future. You are no longer hidden gems as you go out into the world and workplace as ambassadors of the Tolleson Union High School District.

We want all community members to know that our summer food program will be operating at Westview High School. Breakfast and lunch are available at no cost to children ages one through 18 years of age from May 28 through June 27. They serve breakfast from 7:30 a.m. to 8:55 a.m. and lunch is from 11:05 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The address for Westview High School is 10850 W. Garden Lakes Parkway, Avondale, AZ 85392. Please take advantage of this free service for tasty and nutritious meals for your children provided by our excellent Food Service Department.

On to some kudos and celebrations!

Last month, we announced that University High School student Jaime Perez had been named an Outstanding Young Man for the City of Phoenix for district seven. This month, we are happy to announce that Jaime was named the overall Outstanding Young Man of the Year amongst all of the City of Phoenix Districts! This is a great recognition. Check out our Facebook page for a video on Jaime and for photos of his recognition at the luncheon. In addition, an article on Jaime’s accomplishment will be forthcoming in the West Valley View, so be on the lookout for that. We wish Jaime the best of luck as he will be attending the College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts. Congratulations, Jaime. We know you will make us proud!

We are also proud of our staff accomplishments. Ashley Fergus, Westview High School Early Childhood Education and fashion design teacher and FCCLA adviser, and Tina Munoz, West Point High School Counselor, have spent the last three years participating in the Association for Career and Technical Education of Arizona’s Fellowship Program. This summer, they will graduate from the program having learned far more than they ever thought possible from their experiences. Ashley and Tina have worked extremely hard to engage in advocacy efforts with legislators, to present to their peers across the state, and to put on auctions to raise money for student scholarships. Thank you, Ashley and Tina, for wanting to learn more about career and technical education. We know our students will benefit from your professional development.

We will be working hard all summer getting ready for the 2019–2020 school year. Mark your calendars:

  • July 31 - First Day of School for Freshmen Only
  • August 1 - First Day of School for All Students
  • August 15 - TUHSD Parent Night at All School Sites

Please have a safe and rejuvenating summer!
