Message from Our Superintendent

Dear TUHSD Community,

    Our second semester is off to a great start. We hit the ground running with teachers and students working hard every day in classrooms with a united focus on student academic achievement. 

    Open-enrollment forms are available for all our schools, including West Point High School, our newest campus. Open-enrollment forms are available on the website or any school office and we will accept them through March 1, 2019. You can turn completed forms in at the district office or your preferred school. For questions, you can contact Dalia Ontiveros for English or Spanish at (623) 478.4013, or Traci Waling at (623) 478.4023. Please see the Our District page to see the new school attendance boundaries. 

    West Point High School Principal Brandi Haskins and her staff are hard at work planning for West Point’s inaugural year. They will be welcoming freshmen and sophomores to the campus, located at Avondale Blvd. and Encanto, in Avondale. To find more information on West Point High School, please visit our West Point High School page and look for the frequently asked questions.

    At TUHSD, we are always proud of our students. The district art show will be on Wednesday, February 13 at Estrella Mountain Community College from 6:00–7:30 p.m. I hope you will be able to come out and see the amazing artwork from our talented students. Also, if you get the opportunity between now and February 14 to attend the New Horizons Art Show at the Shemer Art Center in Scottsdale, you will get a chance to see artwork by La Joya Community High School students Dayane Martin Olmedo and Fayth Arvizu.  

    And it's not just the students who do great work when it comes to artistic talent. Tolleson Union High School has a new mural depicting its Wolverine mascot, courtesy of former graduate and current Sierra Linda art teacher David Murrieta. David had been working on the mural for the last two months and he recently completed the project. The mural serves as a legacy to David's talent and will be a point of pride at the school for many years to come. Great job, David!

    Finally, the Tolleson Union High School District sent nearly 200 of its students to the Speak Up, Stand Up, Save a Life Annual Youth Conference on January 22 at Grand Canyon University. Many of our students served as facilitators and in addition to students, some of our counselors and school resource officers were present as well. Westview High School received recognition for having the best implementation of the Speak Up, Stand Up, Save a Life program for their work on their campus this year. Students Grace Martinez and Sebastian Muñoz were each recognized individually for their work as student ambassadors. The conference focuses on bullying and suicide prevention and on helping students recognize and deal with mental health issues that may affect them. 

    The best way to keep up with our district and the progress of the new high school is to check our website for important information. To learn more about our district, follow us on Facebook or on Twitter. 

    TUHSD Do It With Pride!

    Sincerely,

    Nora Gutierrez
