Graduation at a G’Lance, 2/6

February 6, 2020

Churchill Class of 2020 and Families,

Please review the updated Graduation Timeline. Several dates have changed and are highlighted in yellow. Most urgently, the Yearbook Baby Pictures deadline is moved up by two weeks to February 14. Keep reading below for more details.

A special thank you goes out to the handful of parents who have responded to my prompt to start planning the Grad Party* and to those who attended the first planning meeting. Your generous commitment of time and effort will help keep our kids safe on graduation night. The next planning meeting is scheduled for February 13 at 6:30 p.m. in the Churchill library. I encourage all parents to attend. Many hands make light work and I’m sure that your input and assistance will be welcomed, no matter how small.

Churchill’s 2020 graduation ceremony is Friday, June 12, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. at the Hult Center’s Silva Concert Hall. Check out the graduation webpage at chs.4j.lane.edu/graduation for a calendar of graduation events, information and a list of contacts to help you along the way.

Kind Regards,

Jill Reents
