WELCOME BACK RATTLERS!
Message from our Principal
On behalf of B.L. Gray Junior High, we welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! As the principal of BL Gray, I bring a commitment to the success of all our scholars, and the promise to do my best to inspire and lead innovations that will challenge our scholars and develop essential skills that will allow them to be successful.
The first two weeks of school have been a great success! Our incoming 7th grade scholars are quickly adapting to junior high, and our 8th grade scholars are doing an amazing job leading by example. Our extracurricular programs are off to a STRONG start, and our scholars have demonstrated that they are ready to LEAD by embracing The Rattler Way! Many great things are happening! All of which could not be possible without your partnership!
Parents, thank you, for your continued support; together, we will make the 2023-2024 school year another great year for our scholars, continuing our tradition of EXCELLENCE at B.L. Gray Junior High.
Mrs. Maria D. Chavez, Principal

Sharyland ISD implements new mental health curriculum
SHARYLAND, Texas (ValleyCentral) - Sharyland ISD is adopting a new approach to Mental Health Support through its curriculum. The Capturing Hearts curriculum was implemented for students in K-12 and focuses on building connections. The idea is to create a culture where teachers and students grow together.
If your scholar is sick, PLEASE do not send them to school. If a scholar has a fever of 100.0 F or 37.7 C, they must stay home for 24 hours and may return when they are fever free without the use of any fever reducing medications.
Do not send scholar to school with medications. A parent/guardian must bring medications to our campus Nurse, Mrs. Rowland.
For questions please call 956-580-5333
