A Message From Heather Patterson, GRHS Principal


Happy Sunday GRHS Longhorns,


We are truly on countown now! Lots of end of year GR-eat stuff is coming, so we have to keep pushing forward and finish strong with behavior, academics, and attendance! Giving your best effort in and out of the classroom will ensure that you will be able to enjoy your summer break! So choose to do the right thing, even when no one is looking...that's called character!


We are celebrating Culture Week at the Ranch this week! Thanks to all the clubs and teacher sponsors for helping make this happen! See the flyer below and get ready to learn each day on the morning announcements about the all amazing cultures we have right here at the Ranch!


Tighten Up!

Not adhering to the campus expectations is not an option. I have been crystal clear and also personally review them every morning on announcements. If you choose to NOT follow them, you are choosing to accept the consequences, including ISS, OSS, possible ALC, and of course the loss of your exemptions. Most of our campus is doing a great job with this, but if you are one that is NOT, now is the time to fix it. Disrespect will get you in trouble, so the sooner you understand rules/policies are meant to be followed, not argued, the more successful you will be not only in school but in life. If you are causing unnecessary work for us, due to non compliance to very fair rules and expectations, you will be suspended, because we are focusing on the Longhorns that are trying their best and making end of year academic success as the priority.


Driving and Parking Reminders:


  • Please make sure you are parking in YOUR designated parking spot (that was paid for). A few students have been parking in visitor parking, you will be towed moving forward, there are no warnings. We're short on spots for subs and various district personel visiting the campus for the day when you take these spots.
  • Leave a little earlier, by you running late, you are causing major parking lot safety concerns. No more u-turns on 762 to bypass the traffic light, because this is very dangerous. Fort Bend County has been notified so they will start patrolling it.
  • Speeding and cutting across the parking lot will result in you losing your driving/parking privileges. The safety of our Longhorns and staff is too important to me.
  • Parents dropping off students in the parking lot, you will need to stay in the driveway, or pull in a spot to drop off, blocking the parking spots for staff is keeping them from being on duty on time. This creates an unsafe environment for us, and that cannot happen. Thanks for your help!



Service Hour HARD Deadline - May 1ST!

Mrs. Ford will only be approving hours from 12/15/21- 5/1/22. Please note that service hours must be recorded and verified by the supervisor by May 1. It's the student's responsibility to make sure that your supervisor has verified your hours in SchooLinks by May 1. All service hours that haven't been recorded & verified in SchooLinks by May 1 will be DECLINED.

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.


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.

  • 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.

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.

DUAL CREDIT OFFERINGS AND DEADLINES!

All Applications are due on Canvas by May 2nd. No exceptions!

The assignment has been posted since the beginning of March, so students had plenty of time to submit. Even if students still need to take the TSI or Next Gen test, they still must submit applications by May 2nd. Please do not wait until the last minute as the application process can take some time.


Link Dual Credit Application Process


✓ GRHS will offer one more TSI or Next Gen test opportunity in May for dual credit students. The May administration is for students that added dual credit courses within the past few weeks, missed the April testing window, or did not meet the passing standard.


Please use this link to register for testing: https://forms.office.com/r/RX1jTRFgyj

Deadline to register May 2nd!


✓ Please remember that dual credit courses are college courses with high academic expectations that require student initiative and responsibility. Students should be the ones completing the application and asking questions. Before we know it, students will be off to college, so we encourage them to start practicing the skills they need now.


GRHS counselors and our College and Career Facilitator are here to help. Students can stop by 2327 if they have any questions, and we will assist them.
