Churchill News

Graduation at a G’Lance, 5/6

Churchill Graduating Students and Families,

Don’t forget to check our website for the most current graduation information at www.chs.lane.edu/graduation.

The Graduation Checklist

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. The “Number of Credits” column will be updated as counselors confirm graduation eligibility for all seniors and early graduates. Some students may not see a change in this column until after midterm grades are complete.

How to Use the Checklist

To protect student privacy, the checklist is published with student numbers, rather than names. You can find your student number on your most recent report card. In ParentVUE or StudentVUE, go to the Report Card tab and click the link that says “Click here to view report card […].”

A check mark means that your requirements for that column are complete. Incomplete requirements will have a note indicating who can help you finalize that requirement.

Pre-Ordered Graduation Announcements

We still have a few boxes of graduation announcements waiting to be picked up. If you ordered announcements or memorabilia from Miners Graduate Services and have not picked them up, please visit Jill or Robin in the front office.

Seating and Walking Partner Sign Up Begins Next Week!

  • Seating and Walking Partner Slips will be available in my office during student lunch only.
  • All graduating students who are interested in participating in the graduation ceremony must sign up for seating.
  • You are not required to have a walking partner.
  • You must be cleared to graduate; walking partners must both be cleared to graduate.
  • Submitted slips will be drawn and seating will be assigned at random. Exceptions: Performers and their walking partners will be seated in the front row or where they can easily access the front of the stage. Special accommodations will be made where appropriate.

Ticket Distribution Begins Next Week!

  • You must be cleared to graduate. Make sure you are cleared on the checklist before picking up your tickets.
  • Tickets are free.
  • Distribution is in my office during student lunch only. (Call or email me if you cannot come during student lunch.)
  • Six tickets will be reserved for each graduating student. Two in the orchestra section, and the remaining four in the orchestra or mezzanine as available. Students may request additional tickets until they are sold out, but students requesting more than 14 total tickets must bring a note from a parent.
  • The Hult Center requires a ticket for every person who enters the concert hall, including infants.
  • Any tickets remaining in the pool of reserved tickets will be released for distribution at graduation rehearsal, and in the Hult Center lobby half an hour before the ceremony begins.

School Schedules Survey

Share Your Views on School Schedules

Online survey, community forum May 9

Eugene School District 4J is changing to a consistent calendar and standard schedules for all schools to provide enough instruction time for students, fair and equal learning time at all schools, and consistent schedules for families. The schedule details will be decided this spring.

A first draft schedule was published in March for staff, parent, student and community input. The district has now taken the input received and developed a second draft schedule for further review and feedback.

The district wants to hear from families about your views on school schedules and what various schedule changes would mean for you.

Please take 5 minutes between now and May 9 to share your feedback in a community input survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/4Jschedule2. Your input is important.

Parents, students, staff and community members also are invited to learn more about the draft schedules under discussion and talk with school board members and district staff at a community forum on school schedules on Wednesday, May 9, at 5:30 p.m., at the 4J Education Center, 200 N. Monroe St. Spanish interpretation will be provided.

To learn more, review the draft schedule, and provide feedback, see www.4j.lane.edu/standard-school-schedule-second-draft.

Foro comunitario el 9 de mayo

El Distrito Escolar de Eugene 4J está cambiando a un calendario consistente y a horarios estándares para todas las escuelas para proporcionar suficiente tiempo de instrucción a los estudiantes, tiempo de aprendizaje justo e igualitario en todas las escuelas, y horarios constantes para las familias. Los detalles de los horarios se decidirán esta primavera.

Al distrito le gustaría escuchar de las familias su opinión acerca de los horarios escolares y lo que los diferentes cambios de horario significarían para ustedes.

Se les invita a los padres a tomar unos minutos entre el día de hoy y el 9 de mayo para compartir sus comentarios en una encuesta en línea (www.surveymonkey.com/r/4Jschedule2, en inglés). Su opinión es importante.

También se invita a los padres, estudiantes, miembros del personal y de la comunidad a un foro comunitario donde podrán enterarse mas sobre los horarios que se están considerando y hablar con los miembros de la junta directiva escolar. El foro se llevara a cabo el miércoles, 9 de mayo a las 5:30 p.m., en el Centro Educativo de 4J, ubicado en el 200 N. Monroe St. Se proveerá interpretación en español.

Graduation Performer Audition Results Are In

Auditions are closed. All of the students who auditioned for graduation did an amazing job! It was incredibly difficult to make the cuts that we did. Students will receive slips on Monday notifying them whether they were accepted. Students who were accepted can pick up a draft copy of the program in my office on Monday.

Ticket Distribution

Tickets will be available for graduating students at the front office during student lunch starting on May 14. The Hult Center requires a ticket for every person who enters the concert hall, including infants. Tickets will be free to all graduating students. Each student will receive six reserved tickets. There are not enough seats in the orchestra section (main floor) to guarantee that all reserved tickets will be in that section. We do guarantee that at least two reserved tickets will be in the orchestra section (main floor). The remaining four tickets will be in the orchestra or mezzanine (second floor) as available. Most students will be able to get all six reserved tickets in the orchestra section. For the best chance, you should make sure you are cleared to graduate before ticket distribution starts on May 14. Students may request additional tickets until all sections are sold out. Any student who requests more than 14 tickets must bring a note from a parent/guardian. Any reserved tickets remaining will be released for distribution at graduation rehearsal and half an hour before the ceremony begins in the Hult Center lobby.

School Schedules: Your Feedback

School Schedules to Change Next Year: Share Your Views

District seeking feedback on second draft schedule

To provide enough instruction time for students, fair and equal learning time at all schools, and consistent schedules for families, Eugene School District 4J is changing to a consistent calendar and standard schedules for all schools in 2018–19. The schedule details will be decided this spring.

A first draft schedule was published in March for staff, parent, student and community input. The district has now taken the input received and developed a second draft schedule for further review and feedback.

The second schedule draft responds to staff and families’ input with a shorter early release on Wednesdays, earlier start and end times for high school, slightly earlier times for middle school, and as many elementary school start times as possible closer to their current times.

The draft schedules provide for elementary schools to schedule 60 minutes of recess and lunch within the regular school day—a little more time than currently provided at most schools and grades. Middle and high schools also would schedule about 60 minutes of lunch, breaks and passing periods during the school day.

Parents and students are invited to take a few minutes to review the second schedule draft and share your feedback in an online input form. Your input is important.

To learn more, review the draft schedule, and provide feedback, see www.4j.lane.edu/2018/04/standard-school-schedule-second-draft.


Los horarios escolares cambiaran el próximo año: Comparta su punto de vista

El distrito esta pidiendo su opinión sobre el segundo borrador del horario escolar

Para proporcionar suficiente tiempo de instrucción a los estudiantes, tiempo de aprendizaje justo e igualitario en todas las escuelas, y horarios constantes para las familias, el distrito escolar de Eugene 4J está cambiando a un calendario consistente y a horarios estándares para todas las escuelas en el año 2018–19. Los detalles de la programación se decidirán esta primavera.

En marzo se publicó un borrador inicial del horario para buscar aportes de opiniones de los padres, los estudiantes, el personal, y la comunidad. El distrito ha tomado ahora la información recibida y ha desarrollado un segundo borrador del horario para consideración y opiniones adicionales.

El segundo borrador del horario esta basado en las sugerencias emitidas por el personal y las familias y consiste de una salida temprana mas corta los miércoles, horas de entrada y salida mas temprano para las escuelas preparatorias, entrada un poquito mas temprano para las escuelas secundarias, y mantener el horario para la mayoría de las escuelas primarias lo mas cerca posible al horario actual.

El borrador del horario provee para las escuelas primarias 60 minutos de recreo y almuerzo dentro del día escolar regular — un poco más del tiempo que se ofrece actualmente en la mayoría de las escuelas y grados. Las escuelas secundarias y preparatorias también programarían cerca de 60 minutos de almuerzo, recreo y el tiempo en el cual los estudiantes van de una clase a otra durante el día escolar.

Se les invita a los padres y estudiantes a tomar unos minutos para revisar el segundo borrador del horario y compartir sus comentarios en un formulario en línea. Su opinión es importante.
