A Message from Superintendent Nora Gutierrez

September 2022 Superintendent Message:

Dear Tolleson Union High School District Community,

We have had a great start to the school year. It is nice to see students smiling and happy to be back with their friends and teachers on our campuses. I am looking forward to an outstanding year for student success in academics, athletics, and their chosen extracurricular activities! Students are keeping busy with their coursework and are also getting ready for performances with their theater, dance, band, and musical groups. Clubs are gearing up to provide fun activities throughout the year as well.  

Campuses are buzzing with excitement as fall sports are scheduled to begin in September. Coaches and student athletes are busy preparing for the upcoming season of cross country, football, golf, swim/dive, and volleyball. I know that our students, coaches, and fans will do iT with pride both on and off the field. I often say that a busy student is a good student. Sports and extracurricular activities inspire many of our students to be focused and successful in their classrooms. We are all united with our focus on student academic achievement!

We have some great news to share with all of you. Please take a look at some of the positive vibes going on in our district. First off, I am happy to report that our Beyond the Gridiron: Tolleson docuseries produced last year by The Arizona Republic about our TUHS football team, has been nominated for two Emmy awards!  We will know the outcome after October 1. We really appreciated working with The Arizona Republic last year and promoting Tolleson’s football program and our students. 

Other good news includes the West Point High School varsity cheer team who won the Unity Award over the summer. All the teams at the summer camp, as well as staff, vote for the Unity Award. The award celebrates the team who came prepared each and every day, worked hard, and had a positive attitude. Most importantly, it is indicative of the team that was most helpful and inclusive to all. The team also received a superior rating for their fight song evaluation, which is the highest rating received. Congratulations to the West Point Cheer Squad!

Robert James Castro, a junior at West Point High School, is the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA-AZ) statewide vice president for finance and sponsorship. As an FBLA-AZ state officer, Robert will be involved in chapter visits to other schools, including Westview Finance and West Point Business. Congratulations to Robert and thank you for representing our district and your school in such a positive and professional manner.

The safety of our students is a top priority. Parents, please communicate to your students the importance of obeying all pedestrian laws. As a safety precaution, students should not be looking down at their phones nor should they have headphones or earbuds as they attempt to cross the street. It is important that students be on the lookout for cars and not assume that the driver can see them. As you know, mornings can be quite busy near school sites. If pedestrians and drivers do their part to follow the safety rules, we can have a safer environment for everyone. We appreciate your assistance and cooperation.

Important dates to note for the month of September:

  • Monday, September 5: Labor Day Holiday (No School)
  • Wednesday, September 14: All Staff In-Service (No School)
  • Monday, September 26: Sandra Day O’Connor Civics Day at all sites

As always, thank you for entrusting the education of your students to our district. We are looking forward to a great year!

Just a reminder to check our district website, our Facebook page, and our Twitter feed for the latest TUHSD information.

Sincerely,

Nora Gutierrez
