Academic Excellence

End of the Semester

Students need to continue to attend tutorials and attend class each day. It is imperative that students pass each class and not owe any make-up hours. When students accomplish this, it makes their spring semester much more successful. Thank you for helping us help your child be successful.

Senior Information

This is the latest information concerning seniors.

Senior Class of 2016:

Attached are some reminders and new information about graduation this year.

Senior Picture- must be taken for our yearbook. You do not have to purchase a senior picture to be in the yearbook. Please see Rhonda Dickens our yearbook sponsor for more information. January 7 will be the last day to take your picture on campus. Please see Mrs. Dickens for reservation information

Cap and Gown-must be ordered (Even if no announcements are ordered). Our Chisholm Trail purple is distinct and must be ordered through Herff Jones. If you wait to order, the cost will go up. These will be delivered prior to practice time, sometime in May.

If you are ordering cap, gown and gold stole only, the cost is now $49. 95 plus tax for a total of $60.00 (Remember, the longer you wait to order, the more the cost). The cost of your cap and gown will increase again after spring break. It will increase again in April and May.

Please make sure you have an order form for your cap and gown order.

Graduation will be held on June 5th 2016, 8:00 PM at the Fort Worth Convention Center.

You can contact Herff Jones at 817-244-4645 or visit the website and make an online order at www.hjtexan.com


Class Picture and Mandatory Practice

1. We will take our senior class picture on May 31. All seniors must have their cap, gown and stole to be in the picture.

2. Graduation practice will be held at Chisholm Trail High School on June 1st at 9:05 AM. [Dress rehearsal. ALL STUDENTS NEED TO HAVE CAP AND GOWNS ON!!!]. This is a mandatory practice.

Please be aware that the dress code for graduation will be strictly enforced.

Young ladies are required to wear a dress (no strapless or backless) or black dress pants and black shoes under CTHS purple robes.

Young men are required to wear black or very dark slacks with black shoes under CTHS robes. Long sleeve dress shirts with ties are traditionally worn.

All shoes worn must be black – no flip flops or sneakers.

There is a check –in process at graduation for dress code to assure that these guidelines are followed. This is a very important day for you and your family.

Mortar Board (top of cap) - It is best to not decorate your cap but if you want to decorate here are the rules-

…The decoration must be flat and in the center of the cap, no lights, nothing on the rim, no feathers, no boas, must use appropriate language, must be flat…You can put your future college on it…We must be able to see purple- all approvals go through Mrs. Dye.


Prom is May 14 at the Texas Motor Speedway. The price is now $85.00. Please go to the House principal office by the cafeteria for more information.


Here are the dates for the SAT and ACT tests. You must go online and register for these tests. Please see your Counselor or visit the College and Career Center during your lunch to get assistance on how to register.

There is also a fee. SAT costs $54.50 and ACT costs $56.50. There are fee waivers. Go to collegeboard.org to learn about the SAT and ACT.

Ø October 24 ACT

There are many scholarships available. Please visit the counselor’s website on the CTHS website


Attendance is more important than ever. Please be very aware of your attendance. In case the 90% attendance rule is broken and exceeded, you will need to turn in a waiver request and meet with the attendance committee to determine eligibility and completion of hours. Seniors who remain out of attendance compliance, will not receive class credit and therefore will not graduate and walk the stage. This is a TEA state ruling. Senior must be in attendance for the full semester/year.

Senior Night After Graduation- SNAG is a parent sponsored event that takes place the night of graduation.

They are looking for many parents to participate in this worthwhile endeavor to keep our seniors safe on graduation night. It is paid for through parent fundraising
