Message from Our Superintendent

Dear TUHSD Community,

July is the month of celebrating the Fourth of July and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. This is the month for fireworks, family reunions, barbecues, picnics, parades, and vacations. Whatever your plans are, it is my sincere hope that you rest, relax, and spend quality time with your family and friends.

I would like to acknowledge our students that participated in summer school last month. They worked hard to earn credit for courses to regain momentum or move ahead towards fulfilling their graduation requirements. This summer, we had a well-attended Future Freshman Academy, and those freshmen will be ready to jump right in to the high school experience with determination and confidence in August. I am so proud of the 40+ seniors that didn’t give up, completed their requirements, and graduated on June 29! It’s all about student academic success!

July is also the month that we are busy preparing for the 2018-2019 school year. Our staff is participating in professional development to ensure they are ready to serve our students when they return. That said, be sure to contact your local TUHSD high school to confirm that your students, especially incoming freshmen, are registered and your information is current with the school office. Speaking of our freshmen class, we are so happy to receive those students who are coming to us from our partner districts. Whether you come to us from Pendergast, Tolleson, Union, Fowler, or Littleton, we welcome you with open arms, knowing that this is the next great step in your academic development. We also realize that we may be accepting students from other parts of the Valley or out-of-state - we extend a warm Tolleson welcome to you as well! 

Remember to check our website often for important upcoming events including:

  • The first day of school for freshmen on August 1, 2018.
  • The first day of school for all other students on August 2, 2018.
  • Join us for the district’s parent night on August 16 at each school site.

    To learn more about our district, follow us on Facebook or on Twitter. 

    TUHSD Do It With Pride!

    Sincerely,

    Nora Gutierrez
