High School Science Curriculum Open House — Tuesday, April 4

High School Science Curriculum Open House — Tuesday, April 4  

New curriculum is being considered for 4J high school science classes. Parents and students are invited to a science adoption open house to learn about and give feedback on the curriculum being considered — Tuesday, April 4, 5–6 p.m., at the 4J Education Center, 200 N. Monroe St. in Eugene. Spanish interpretation will be provided.

Oregon’s academic standards for science have changed. Our school district is looking to adopt new high school science curriculum to replace aging learning materials, using bond funds approved by voters in 2013. New science curriculum already has been adopted for elementary and middle schools. Now, updated curricula are being considered and community input is invited for five high school science courses: physical science, biology, earth science, chemistry and physics.

Curriculum recommendations will be considered by the school board for adoption this spring. New materials could be in use as soon as next fall.


Sesión abierta al publico sobre el currículo de ciencias en las escuelas preparatorias martes, 4 de abril

Se está considerando un nuevo currículo para las clases de ciencia en las escuelas preparatorias de 4J. Los padres y estudiantes están invitados a una reunión para aprender y dar su opinión acerca del currículo que se está considerando. La reunión se llevara a cabo el martes 4 de abril de 5 a 6 p.m., en el centro educacional de 4J, localizado en el 200 N. Monroe Street en Eugene. Se proveerá intérpretes en español.

Los estándares académicos de Oregon para las clases de ciencia han cambiado. Nuestro distrito escolar esta considerando adoptar un nuevo currículo para las clases de ciencia en las escuelas preparatorias para reemplazar materiales de aprendizaje anticuados utilizando fondos de bonos aprobado por los votantes en el 2013. Se ha adoptado ya un nuevo currículo para las clases de ciencia en las escuelas primarias y secundarias. Ahora se están considerando currículos actualizados para las escuelas preparatorias y se invita a la comunidad a dar su opinión sobre cinco cursos de ciencia: ciencias naturales, biología, ciencias de la tierra, química y física.

Las recomendaciones del currículo serán consideradas por la junta directiva para su adopción esta primavera. Los materiales nuevos podrían estar en uso tan pronto como el próximo otoño.


Prom April 29, 2017

Junior and senior prom is coming!

This year’s Old Hollywood prom will be on April 29th from 8 to 11pm at the Ford Alumni Center, next to Matt Knight Arena!

Tickets will go on sale April 17th before school, during the 10 minute passing period, during lunch, and after school- until April 28th. Tickets will be $25 with ASB and $30 without ASB. Look for posters and flyers around the school for more information regarding tickets! Ticket prices will increase at the door.

Prom Court nominations will begin at the same time as ticket sales. Seniors are asked to nominate 5 students who identify as female and 5 students who identify as male to serve on the court. Juniors nominate 4 female students and 4 male students for court. The final court will consist of 10 seniors and 4 juniors. At the dance, students will vote for two court members they believe deserve to be the prom royalty and those students will then be announced and crowned.

We are incredibly excited for this event and we hope students are too!

We still need chaperones! If you are interested in being a parent chaperone, please email Lauren Nusser at

2/28 Water Quality Update

The district’s water quality assurance process is now complete at Churchill. All of our drinking fountains and sinks are safe to use.

Last summer our school district had all schools and buildings tested for lead levels in the water. Samples were collected from all taps used for drinking water and food preparation and sent to professional labs for analysis. The initial results showed that some of our school’s water faucets had elevated lead levels, above 20 parts per billion (ppb).

The fixtures were replaced and the water was retested. In a few cases, additional actions were needed to eliminate the source of elevated lead. This has now been completed and the follow-up test results show normal levels. The fixtures are safe to use.

More information about water quality is available on the district website at Please call or email me if you have any questions.
