Family Bulletin, November 18, 2022

Hello, Churchill families and students;

Next week is a short school week (M-W), but also the last week before we head into finals week for Trimester 1.  Please connect with your students about their classes, assignments and grades.  There is still time to turn things in, do make-up work, talk with teachers, and pass classes.  My hope is that students will take the extra days off next week to do what is need to finish first trimester strong.  As always, please reach out to teacher, and staff at CHS if you have questions.

I would also like to say what a privilege it is to be the principal at Churchill.  The staff, students and community are so wonderful, friendly, and supportive.  I truly am thankful, grateful, and honored to be in this position.  As we head into Thanksgiving week, know that I am thankful for you all!

Go, Lancers!

Missy Cole, Principal
Churchill High School

School and Student Information

Trimester 2 is just around the corner

Please check your Tri 2 schedule. If your schedule has errors, please use the Schedule Change Form to request a change. The form is now open on the Churchill website, and the QR code is posted by the counseling offices and in the halls. The Master Schedule of classes is posted near the counseling offices if you need to find when a course is offered.

Enter the requested change only once, then keep checking your Student/Vue and 4j email to see if the change has been made or if your counselor has a question. Again, a change may be requested only for an error, such as a missing or incorrect course, or classes needed for graduation. Changes will not be made simply for a student to be with friends or to change teachers in the same subject area.

The Schedule Change Form link is at:

Seniors Graduation Credits

Important!  Seniors– be certain to check your Tri 2 and Tri 3 schedules to make certain you have the courses and credits you need for graduation. Be sure you have completed and submitted your LEAP contract, and you have a plan for meeting Career Related Experiences (CRLs). All LEAP contracts are due November 30.

If you are planning to attend college or trade school, make sure you are taking the courses required for admission.

If you need a schedule change, please put the request in the Schedule Change Request Form as soon as possible. The form is now open on the Churchill website, and the QR code is posted by the counseling offices and in the halls. The Master Schedule of classes is posted near the counseling offices if you need to find when a course is offered.


All students who are participating in school sports are required by OSAA to be enrolled and passing 2.0 credits (4 classes) for both the trimester before their sport AND the trimester during their sport. If you are not scheduled for 2.0 credits (4 classes) during both of those trimesters, use the Schedule Change form to add enough classes for you to meet this participation requirement.


Middle School Math Credit Forms

Do you have a current 9th grader who took Algebra or Geometry at a 4J middle school last year? Be on the look out for a Middle School Math Credit Consent form in the mail. If you and your student are happy with the final grade on the form and would like it to appear on your student’s high school transcript, please sign the form and return it to our registrar for processing. If you do not receive a form for your child by the end of November and believe that your student should have gotten one, please reach out to our registrar. All contact options for our registrar can be found on the form itself or under our staff directory page on our website.

Textbook return for the end of Trimester 1

Please Return or Renew Textbooks by Wednesday, 11/30!  Students should return their textbooks directly to the library by the end of the school day on WednesdayNovember 30th. Students should never give their books to their teacher or leave them in the classroom. Instead, students should return their books directly to the library. If students need to use their books again in Trimester 2, they can stop by the library and renew them, even if they don’t have their book with them. Thank you for helping ensure we have enough textbooks for all students.
