A Message From Heather Patterson, GRHS Principal


Happy Sunday GRHS Longhorns,


Happy Easter! There is no school tomorrow, but Tuesday begins the 6th six weeks! The end of the year is coming at lightning speed and will be here before you know it, especially for my seniors! Take it from a senior principal parent from last year, (yep, that's me) use this last little bit of time to soak in every moment, even the small ones, because those are the ones that will leave the biggest footprint on your heart when you are missing them next year!


Every April Autism Speaks celebrates World Autism Month! HELP SHOW SUPPORT EVERY MONDAY IN APRIL BY WEARING BLUE AT THE RANCH! Everyone is encouraged to participate, whether you have autism, love someone who does, or are looking to support a diverse, accepting and kind community!


As the weather begins to warm back up this month, please make sure you are WELL within dress code. That means your shorts are LONG enough, shorts can be SEEN WELL BELOW those oversized t-shirts, no mid drift showing (which means the length of your shirt matters too), and no hoodies UP inside the building. Also, you should NOT be carrying a blanket around, if you feel the building is cold, bring a jacket or sweatshirt.


LESS THAN 40 Yearbooks Left! Better Hurry!


ID's are mandatory!

If you do not have an ID at this point, you will need to purchase a new one for $5 in the library from 8:00-8:15am. If you choose not to, there will be a HOLD placed on your account for the end of year. (exemptions/graduation/final grades, etc) Remember No ID = No Tech visible! Please make sure you are following this rule as well as being in dress code and to ensure that you are not written up for non compliance.


The front office is open daily Monday- Friday 8:00-4:00pm to assist you. You can also directly email us or call 832-223-4200 during the same hours. We are happy to help!

Attention Students Taking AP Exams!

Please read the following information carefully.


Morning exams: Students must be ready to enter testing room at 7:45 a.m. If you are not present for the exam at 7:45, you may be counted absent and not be allowed to test. Students need to make arrangements to get to school on time and allow for traffic, trains, etc.


You should bring the following items to the exam room:

  • Several sharpened No. 2 pencils (with erasers) for completing multiple-choice answer sheets

  • Pens with black or dark blue ink for completing areas on the exam booklet covers and for free-response questions in most exams

  • A watch (in case your exam room does not have a clock that you can see easily) The watch cannot beep or make any noise

  • Up to two calculators with the necessary capabilities if you are taking an AP Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, or Statistics Exam. (Visit www.collegeboard.com/ap/calculators to learn more about the calculator policy for each of these exams, and for a list of authorized calculators.)

  • A ruler or straightedge if you are taking an AP Physics Exam


DO NOT bring the following to the exam room:

  • Cell phones, digital cameras, personal digital assistants (PDAs), BlackBerry smartphones, Bluetooth-enabled devices, MP3 players, e-mail/messaging devices, or any other electronic or communication devices. GRHS is not responsible for any damaged or stolen electronics.

BE ON TIME for your exam: 7:45 a.m. for the morning administration and 12:00 p.m. for the afternoon administration. Students may not be dismissed until an exam has officially ended; do not ask to leave early if you finish before the end of the exam. If you play a sport or have a job, it is your responsibility to inform your coach or employer of your AP Exam obligation, and arrangements should be made accordingly.


Students who normally have C or D lunch will go to B lunch and then report directly to the testing room by 12:00 pm. If you are taking two exams in the same day, you will need to bring a sack lunch that day. You will not have the time or opportunity to go through the lunch line in the cafeteria


If you are scheduled for a STAAR test on the same day as your AP exam, you will take the AP exam on the scheduled day and take the STAAR test on the make-up day.


Get a good night’s rest before your exam and eat a nutritious breakfast. You are allowed to bring a snack and beverage for your 10-minute break. However, food and drink are prohibited in the exam room. It is advisable to bring a sweater in case the room temperature is below your comfort level.


You are required to abide by the policies of both the College Board and George Ranch High School during the exam period. Any misconduct will be reported and could jeopardize your AP Exam score.


*Please make sure you are signed up for the correct exams by reviewing your Total Registration testing schedule.


If you have any additional questions or concerns, feel free to contact me. Good luck!

Behavior Reminders!

  • No ID = NO PHONE (even during lunch/advisory) If you refuse to put them up, it's a write up.
  • No "hood" (from hoodies) or beanie (covering ears) can be worn INSIDE the building.
  • Phones must be put away at AT ALL TIMES during instructional time, unless there is an instruction purpose GIVEN by the teacher and the sign is on GREEN. If you refuse to follow this, it will be a write up. (Phones are allowed before the 8:15 bell, during your lunch and advisory, and after 3:40pm)
  • Ignoring teachers/staff when they are asking you to put on ID or to put your phone up will be a write up. (That's just disrespect)
  • In the hallways without an ID AND a pass during class time, will be a write up.
  • Instigating, participating, or videoing an altercation (regardless of how small) will be a write up. If you are part of a fight, you will be placed at ALC.
