Message from Our Superintendent

November Superintendent Message:

Dear Tolleson Union High School District Community,

November begins with success and a hope for greater success in the future. Our D-Backs are champions of the national league with a young team that will hopefully win the World Series within the next few years. The state has released letter grades for all schools and now every school in the district is a B or higher, but we know we have the potential to have all A schools. As much as I love the D-backs, I think our schools can all get to an A faster than they can get their ring.

The A letter grade would be significant recognition of the hard work of our staff and students. However, my challenge to our principals, teachers, counselors, and to our district leadership is that we get every student focused on what they are doing the day after graduation. It can be college, career, or military, but they all need to have a plan to be enrolled, employed, or enlisted after walking that stage at State Farm Stadium. You can expect us to become more deliberate about not just preparing your student academically for the future but also helping them plan for the future.

November is my favorite month of the year, and it’s not just because I’m a veteran, or having my birthday, or because I can see the Diamondbacks, Suns, and Cardinals all play in the same month. I appreciate that it’s a time for us to be thankful and to that effect I want to congratulate University High for being named the #5 school in Arizona and Sierra Linda for being upgraded to a B school! I am thankful for their accomplishments and the hard work that is taking place across the district including all of the support we receive from our community. I hope you all have a chance to spend time with those you love this month and that you have an opportunity to enjoy any of the exciting activities taking place here in our community like NASCAR championship racing right here in our backyard!

Important Dates:

  • Friday, November 10: Veterans Day (No Classes) 
  • Monday, November 20 through Friday, November 24: Thanksgiving Break (No Classes). Classes resume on Monday, November 27.
