G-P Students competed at the San Antonio FRC Robotics Event

This past weekend, a group of our G-P students competed at the San Antonio FRC robotics event. Unlike our smaller robots where we have small groups of students on multiple teams, this program has all of our students work together to make one large-scale robot. Our students were able to overcome issues early on in the event to finish the event in the 2nd place alliance! Our students also earned the Rookie Inspiration award. Please help me in congratulating these students on their hard work so far this season! Our next event is in Houston in two weeks and they are already working hard to improve and repair their robot after this event.

GPHS Hosted the Annual VASE Competition

Our wonderful GPHS hosted the annual VASE competition (Visual Arts Scholastic Event). This was our first in-person event since 2020. There were 15 high schools within our region competing with a total of 423 artworks.  

Participants have an 8–10 minute interview with a juror and are scored on the following criteria.

  • Student research and application to work
  • Artwork sources

  • Execution and technique

  • The use of elements and principles of art

  • Aesthetics and critical judgment

  • Personal expression

Jurors employ the following rating system to designate the degree of proficiency in which the student developed the VASE standards leading to the level of artistic quality within their work; Rating IV- Excellent,  Rating III- Strong,  Rating II - Developing,  Rating I- Emerging

The GP Art Department had 38 students who submitted 57 artworks!  We are proud to announce that our kids came home with 3 Area Medals and will advance to State!!  45 Regional Medals- Rating IV's!! and 5 Rating III's!!
