Ranger Drive

Please help our Ranger Family by donating new unwrapped toys, coats, socks, hoodies, food, books, etc to our school wide drive for Community Link. Our goal is to deliver 500 items to this organization that, in turn, helps so many in our community. Thank you for helping us help others!

Academic Excellence

Academic Data 2nd Six Weeks

We are still doing great with 81% of our students passing all their classes and 36% of our students making the A and A/B Honor Roll. Our attendance rate was 95.18%. It is crucial for students to be in school and attending tutorials during Ranger Review Time or before/after school to achieve success. To also show our students how much we believe in academics and attendance, we have started our Ranger Incentive cards this year!! Students can earn many great incentives by passing all their classes, getting to class on time, and attending classes everyday.

We will continue to build relationships with our students so we can assist them with making great decisions concerning their academics. We want each of our students to achieve their personal future goals!!!

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.

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.


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.

Here are most of the SAT and ACT dates:

Ø October 24 ACT

Ø November 7 SAT

Collegeboard.org and actstudent.org has all of the exact dates for these tests.


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

If you have questions regarding graduation please contact Susan Dye 817-232-7112 ext. 7023
