Family Bulletin, September 23, 2022

Hello, Churchill families and students, 

The school year is in full swing and the halls are a buzz with having 1100 students back in classes and around school. Today’s Welcome back Assembly was a great reminder that high school students need to be together, need to have fun, and need to get back to “normal” school routines. I so enjoyed seeing all the smiling faces on students and staff as the Band played, the Cheerleaders Cheered, the Leadership students leading an amazing assembly, and the student body cheering on their fellow peers during the games and choir performance. It was a great day to be a Lancer!

In addition to the past few weeks of school, I also had an opportunity to reminisce with past Lancers. Lance Falcon, our 9th/10th-grade administrator, and I had the pleasure of spending time with the first class to graduate from CHS, the Class of 1967, and the Class of 1982. Both classes shared many happy memories of their time here at Churchill; their favorite teacher and class, where their lockers were, how the Rock continues to be a focal point for CHS, and also how the school has changed over the years. It was such a pleasure to spend time with them learning the great history of Churchill and how they are still so proud to be Lancers these many years later. 

Go, Lancers!

School Announcements

Canvas 101 for students

Are you new to Canvas, or do you just need a refresher? Students and families can enroll in Canvas 101 for Students to learn how to use Canvas. 

There are two ways to find this course: 

 

Reporting an Absence

  • Please inform the attendance office each day that your student is absent. 
  • Absences need to be excused within 2 business days.
  • Pre-planned absences of three or more days may be excused if arranged in advance by filling out the pre-arranged absence form available in our front office or on our website at chs.4j.lane.edu/forms.

To excuse by 24-hour voice message: 541-790-5102 

To excuse by email: chs_attendance@4j.lane.edu 

 

Perfect Attendance Celebrations

Starting next week, we would like to celebrate our students when everyone is in class and on time for 1st period!  When this occurs, teachers will notify Administration that they have perfect attendance, and then we will come to the class to celebrate, recognize their effort, and share a small prize with the teacher and class.  Our hope is to branch this out to all classes as the year goes on in order to be in class, on time, and ready to learn.

 

Volunteer for Site Council

Site Council is a group of teachers, support staff, students, and parent representatives who determine the mission, vision, and school improvement goals for Churchill High School. Churchill is looking for new community members that would like to be part of this important work. Our meetings are once a month and will always honor the time of our team. Please contact Assistant Principal Lancelot Falcon (falcon_l@4j.lane.edu) for further information.

 

Grad Party Planning, Volunteers Needed

The 2023 Grad Party Committee is holding its first meeting Wednesday, October 5th at 6 pm at Gryff’s Pub across from the high school. Parents of junior students are encouraged to come as well. If you cannot make it to the meeting but would like to be added to our email distribution list, please email us at ChurchillGradParty2023@gmail.com with your contact information. Hope to see you on the 5th!

 

Community Announcements

Get to School Safely!

We encourage students to get to school using active transportation like walking, biking, skating, and scooting, or shared transportation like busing and carpooling. It’s great for their health and the environment and makes the space around our school safer and less trafficked. 

Please take a look at the safety tip sheets for walking and biking on our regional Safe Routes to School website, and go over some of the safety tips with your student: https://www.eugenespringfieldsrts.org/local-resources 

Finally, when choosing a walking or biking route, try a route other than the one you would use to drive to school. Sidewalk riding on busy streets is dangerous because people driving don’t expect people biking on sidewalks. Quieter neighborhood streets may be a better option. Safe Routes to School has walking maps on their website, here: https://www.eugenespringfieldsrts.org/maps-for-biking-and-walking  You can also connect with our Safe Routes to School staff for route planning assistance at mazze_s@4j.lane.edu or 541-790-7539.

¡Llegue a la escuela con seguridad!

Alentamos a los estudiantes a llegar a la escuela utilizando medios de transporte activos, como caminar, andar en bicicleta, patinar y andar en patineta, o medios de transporte compartidos, como autobuses y vehículos compartidos. Es excelente para su salud y el medio ambiente y hace que el espacio alrededor de nuestra escuela sea más seguro y menos transitado.

Eche un vistazo a las hojas de consejos de seguridad para caminar y andar en bicicleta en el sitio web de Rutas seguras a la escuela de nuestra región, y repase algunos de los consejos de seguridad con su estudiante: https://www.eugenespringfieldsrts.org/local-resources

Finalmente, cuando elija una ruta para caminar o andar en bicicleta, pruebe con una ruta diferente a la que usaría para conducir a la escuela. Andar en bicicleta en las aceras es peligroso porque las personas que manejan no esperan que las personas anden en bicicleta en las aceras. Las calles más tranquilas del vecindario pueden ser una mejor opción. Safe Routes to School tiene mapas para caminar en su sitio web, aquí: https://www.eugenespringfieldsrts.org/maps-for-biking-and-walking  También puede conectarse con nuestro personal de Safe Routes to School para obtener asistencia en la planificación de rutas en mazze_s@ 4j.lane.edu o 541-790-7539.
