Message from the President:
Wow! With spring break over, there are only a few months left in the school year! Time sure flies! 
Thank you again for your support throughout the year. Some things we have been able to do because of you:
-          Supply all rooms with supplies for students in case of an emergency,
-          Buy portable tables for school events,
-          Support the new speaker system being installed in the newly modernized gym,
-          Buy a new screen in the Little Theater,
-          Send two students to represent THS in Sacramento to talk to our local politicians,
-          Support of the recent districtwide College Fair,
-          Support various sports and clubs with monetary donations from Casino Night ticket sales
-          And more still to come…
Thank you for your support of our 2nd Annual Casino Night and Silent Auction. It was another successful year.
