Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome back for the 2019–2020 school year! The faculty and staff at THCTT are looking forward to working with students, parents/guardians, and community members to prepare every student, every day for future success.

We are eager to continue building upon the wonderful student accomplishments and programs which took place last school year. A few of these include:

  • Students earned 241 certifications and credentials.
  • Students took part in and benefited from noteworthy events such as Ready. Set. Hire., Technical School Night, and our Awards Night and Signing Day event.
  • Carpentry, electricity, and HVAC/R level two students took part in apprenticeship work-based learning opportunities.
  • Business advisory committee meetings were held for each of our program areas. These partnerships led to student jobs, equipment donations, and field trip experiences.
  • Students competed and were successful in SkillsUSA competitions at the district and state level. 

In preparation for the new school year, I wanted to share some important information in regards to the goals for our school, as well as details about our student fees, back-to-school night, and our parent coffee chat.

Goals for Our School and Our Students

At THCTT our goal is to ‘Prepare Every Student, Every Day for Future Success.’ We believe this is accomplished through four key components:

  1. A student-centered, relevant learning experience which prepares students to be successful in the workforce in general, as well as in careers related to their course.
  2. A safe, secure, and caring learning environment.
  3. Effective parent and community engagement in our programs to enable us to obtain valuable feedback in which to shape our curriculum and help us prepare students for future success. 
  4. Opportunities for students to obtain industry credentials, as well as jobs or apprenticeships.

Student Safety

Student safety is of utmost importance here at THCTT. Students are expected to follow the expectations outlined in the Code of Student Conduct at all times, as well as any course specific safety requirements. Unsafe behaviors may lead to a recommendation of removal from any program in order to ensure the continued safety of all students and staff.
