A Message from Superintendent Nora Gutierrez

December 2022 Superintendent Message:

Dear Tolleson Union High School District Community,

There is a news station in the Valley that has a jingle during the holidays that says, “It’s the season for sharing, a season for caring, a season for one and all!” I couldn’t agree more. This is truly a remarkable time of year. We are just a few weeks away from the end of our first semester and our students are putting on wonderful holiday musicals, drama performances, and holiday events for the community to enjoy. We are also thrilled that we have state-of-the art performing arts centers at every campus in the district for our students to perform in. You, our voters, have supported our bonds and overrides overwhelmingly during my time as superintendent and it is because of you that we have these wonderful amenities for our students and community to enjoy.

And now, on to our monthly celebrations!

The Sierra Linda Marching Band, under the direction of Mr. Ricardo Laborin, has continued their hot streak. On Saturday, November 26, the marching band went to their last competition of the season at the ABODA state championship. The band went up against eight of the best bands in the state in their division. I am happy to announce that Sierra Linda brought home the gold! They took first place and got two individual awards for outstanding music and outstanding percussion. This marks the first time ever in the school’s history that Sierra Linda has won these individual awards. The band received the highest score that has ever been recorded in the school’s history. The seniors can honestly say they are two-time state champs!

Prior to the Thanksgiving break, we had an opportunity to do a ribbon-cutting and celebrate the new buildings and transformation of the Tolleson Union High School campus. There were separate ribbon cuttings for the science building, 500 building classrooms, media center, Wolver Den, and the performing arts center. We are so proud to have these state-of-the-art facilities that our students deserve to learn and perform in. Thank you to our community for supporting our endeavors as we strive to create beautiful public spaces for our Tolleson community.

Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge that the Tolleson Service Committee, for the first time in the last two years, was able to hold their 38th Annual Thanksgiving Day Dinner for the community. We are so proud to host the dinner at our Tolleson Union High School Cafenasium. It is great to see our students, staff, elected officials, and community members come out to support this effort. It is especially good to see the little ones enjoying their turkey dinner and mashed potatoes with their moms and dads. What a great event, we are glad that it is back!

This is truly a time to reflect and enjoy the presence of our loved ones and the anticipated well-deserved time off for both students and staff members. I hope that you will all take time to enjoy the holidays with your family and friends. Whether family is coming here, or you are going elsewhere to visit, please be safe and rest, rest, rest. I want to wish you all a very happy holiday season with those around you. Take care, stay healthy and safe, and we’ll see you all for the start of the second semester on Monday, January 9.

Mark Your Calendar:

  • Winter Break: Monday, December 26 through Friday, January 6 (No School)
  • Second Semester Begins: Monday, January 9
