Diploma Pick Up June 25

Diplomas will be available to pick up starting on June 25. Diplomas will be held until all library books are turned in and gowns provided by Churchill are returned. If you have lost a book or your gown, come talk to us and we’ll work it out.

Donating or Returning your Gown

You may turn in or donate your gown at the front office when you come to pick up your diploma. Gowns borrowed from Churchill or purchased by Churchill are due back to the school before you pick up your diploma. The cap and tassel are yours to keep.

Technology Notice

Once you graduate, your 4J email, 4J Google drive, and 4J Files1 are no longer accessible. Copy any data you wish to keep to an external drive or to your personal Google drive before you go.

If you are using your 4J email for your Naviance account, you must change it to a personal email to avoid losing access to Naviance.

Requesting Final Transcripts

If you have not already requested your final transcript, do so now!!

It is your responsibility to find out if your school requires a final transcript. Typically community colleges do not require a final transcript. Should the community college you will be attending want one, please find out what office needs the transcript. Typically they want a paper copy. You can email Sheree at houck_s@4j.lane.edu before June 20th or the CHS Registrar, Trisha Jackson, jackson_tr@4j.lane.edu after June 20th if you need a paper copy. In your email include the name of the college and the office at the college you want the transcript sent to.

As soon as your graduation date is posted, approximately June 22nd, we will begin sending final transcripts. If the request is not in by June 21st, we cannot guarantee your transcript will arrive at your college/university by their due date.

To request your final transcript:

  1. Log into your Naviance account. Your username is probably the email address you check. If you are getting emails from me and Mary Beth at a certain email address, that’s the one you used as your username. If you don’t know your password, use the “I forgot my password” function
  2. Click on “colleges I’m applying to”
  3. Click on the pencil icon next to the college to which you need your final transcript to be sent
  4. Under the name of the college you will be attending, change the result to “accepted”
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on “Update Applications”
  6. On the same page, scroll up a bit and click on “transcripts”
  7. Under “transcripts” click on “Request transcripts for my college applications”
  8. You will see Request Final Transcripts and the name of the college you will attend. Click on the button next to the college’s name
  9. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on “request transcripts”

Download these directions here.

There are circumstances where you might not be able to complete steps 8 and 9. If that is the case, email Sheree to correct the problem.

The standard schedules now have been decided, after input from families and staff this spring.

Next year the high school schedule will be 8:30–3:30 Monday through Thursday, and 8:30–2:30 on Fridays, to provide time for staff collaboration and professional development. (Our current schedule is 8:40–3:30, and 9:30–3:30 on Wednesdays.)

We know changes in school schedules mean changes for your family schedules. We hope that having this information now, before the end of the school year, will help you plan ahead.

Parent Update, 6/11

Graduation at a G’Lance, 6/10

Churchill Graduating Students and Families,

Graduation is this Tuesday! Check the graduation webpage for continuing updates through the end of June at www.chs.lane.edu/graduation. We are redesigning our website. Starting in July you can find us at www.chs.4j.lane.edu.

Graduation Day Detailed Schedule

Remember, graduation rehearsal is mandatory for all graduates who want to participate in graduation. Students who do not attend the rehearsal and have not made prior arrangements will not be allowed to participate in the ceremony.

You can download the Grad Day Student Agenda HERE. It includes all graduation-day events and details of what to expect at rehearsal.

Diploma Pick Up June 25

Diplomas will be available to pick up starting on June 25. Diplomas will be held until all library books are turned in and gowns provided by Churchill are returned.

Technology Notice

Once you graduate, your 4J email, 4J Google drive, and 4J Files1 are no longer accessible. Copy any data you wish to keep to an external drive or to your personal Google drive before you go.

If you are using your 4J email for your Naviance account, you must change it to a personal email to avoid losing access to Naviance.

Unreserved Tickets are Sold Out

All students will be able to pick up their 6 reserved tickets, but additional unreserved tickets are no longer available. If you have already picked up tickets that you know you will not use, please return your extra tickets to the office, so we can distribute them to students who will use them.

Any unclaimed reserved tickets will be made available at graduation rehearsal on the morning of June 12. First priority will be given to students who have not received any tickets, then to students who received only their six reserved tickets, and finally to students who have already picked up more than their six reserved tickets.

Donating or Returning your Gown

Two blue bins will be available at the Hult Center after graduation for students to return or donate their gowns. You may also turn in or donate your gown at the graduation party, or at the front office when you come to pick up your diploma.

Gowns borrowed from Churchill or purchased by Churchill are due back to the school before you pick up your diploma. The cap and tassel are yours to keep.

Rules for Cap Decorations and How to Wear Your Cap and Gown

Churchill allows graduates to express themselves by decorating their caps for graduation. All cap decorations must be school-appropriate and 2-dimensional. Nothing should stick up on top or hang down below the mortarboard. The mortarboard should be parallel to the ground.

Graduation gowns must be worn correctly, with fronts fully zipped over school-appropriate clothing. Administrators may check under gowns if they suspect inappropriate dress or items that do not belong on the graduation stage, such as noisemakers, beach balls, or other props.

Honor cords, stoles, medals, and pins are provided through the school or district and must be approved by the school administration. Culturally-significant regalia is permitted. Culturally-significant regalia includes ceremonial accessories or attire that are significant to the graduate’s culture as a whole and appropriate to the culture’s traditional rites of passage. This does not include items that are of personal significance to the graduate. School-appropriate jewelry and items of personal significance may be worn in a way that does not detract from the uniform appearance of the cap and gown.

Example pictures of appropriate and inappropriate graduation dress and cap decorations are included in the Graduation Information Night Presentation on the Graduation webpage.

The Graduation Checklist is updated every Friday and posted on the graduation website at www.chs.lane.edu/graduation and in the front office, or click HERE.
