Principal's Message

DATE:              April 29, 2019


    TO:               ALL Parents and Students at Tooele High School, 2018-19


FROM:             Jeffrey D. Hamm, Principal, Tooele High School



Dear Parents and Students:


Whew!  It’s hard to believe that the finish line is in sight!  We have been running so fast and working so hard for so long throughout the year that I have rarely had the opportunity to sit down and reflect upon where we’ve been and ALL the GREAT things happening at Tooele High School each and every day.  It is a busy time of year--but it is also a very FUN time of year, helping students to achieve their potential, to realize some of their dreams and goals, and to be the BEST that they can be!


We are currently in the height of Utah Aspire Plus Testing--but we are also hiring new Faculty and Staff and finalizing our new Master Schedule for next year--not to mention working around the "Spring Showers" to wrap up our Spring Sports schedules, making final preparations for graduation, and working in ALL our Spring Plays, Concerts, Banquets, etc.  As our Spring extracurricular activities wind down to the end of their respective seasons, we wish to congratulate ALL our athletes, coaches, musicians, scholars, and teachers on yet another productive and rewarding year.  Best of luck to ALL our students and staff involved with each of our extracurricular programs as they compete in their post-season competitions and tournaments!


Attached you will find your child's mid-term grades for fourth-quarter.  Please review this report with your student--including accessing the fuller, more detailed report on the SIS (Aspire) grading system--and then contact your child's teacher(s) if you have any additional questions or concerns regarding their grades.  We would also ask you to review your student's attendance periodically--and consistently--with them so that there are not any surprises at the end of each quarter (or year) with "U's" and/or other truancy issues.  Also, just a friendly reminder for Seniors--and their parents--that ALL classes needed to graduate must be passed, ALL U’s must be made up, and ALL Student Fees must be paid in full in order to participate in our graduation ceremony at the end of the year.
