Graduation at a G’Lance, 11/19

November 19, 2019

Churchill Class of 2020 and Families,

It’s already time to start thinking about Graduation. Churchill’s 2020 graduation ceremony is Friday, June 12, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. at the Hult Center’s Silva Concert Hall.

June 12 will be here in the blink of an eye, but there is still a lot to do before we get there. To help you stay on track, I will be sending the Graduation at a G’Lance newsletter periodically throughout the school year. These newsletters will be posted at along with a calendar of graduation events, and contact information to help you along the way.

Here are a few upcoming events and deadlines (yes, deadlines already!) for you to know about.

Early Grads (Graduating before June)

When your student graduates and is no longer enrolled in school, your contact information is removed from our communications list. If you want to continue to receive updates about the graduation ceremony, please contact Jill Reents at or 541-790-5112. She will add your preferred contact information to a special distribution list for the Graduation at a G’Lance.

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.

For instructions on using Google Takeout to download your 4J Google data, visit

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.

Order your Cap and Gown and Announcements

Miners Graduate Services supplies our caps and gowns and graduation announcements. Miners also offers class rings, letterman jackets, and other graduation items and class of 2020 memorabilia. A representative from Miners will be here to talk to seniors about graduation orders during the advisory lesson on December 13. They will return to collect order sheets and answer your questions on December 18 and 19 in the student lounge from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. You can order now at

Yearbook Portrait Guidelines

Note: Baby pictures will be due at the end of February. More information will come later.

Grad Party

Every year, parents of seniors organize the Graduation Party. The school has not heard from senior parents this year. Now is the time to get started. If you are interested in organizing the Graduation Party, please communicate with your fellow parents. The school would like to know who is organizing the party so we can share contact information with all parents and help you in any way we can.

The Graduation Party is a community-sponsored event organized by parents of Churchill students and funded by donations. Churchill High School and Eugene School District 4J do not provide financial, administrative, or clerical support for this event. Liability is the responsibility of the organizers of the event.
