Caps and Gowns

If you haven’t already received your cap and gown, please come to the front office to pick it up. A few of you still have not ordered your cap and gown. Please order from Miners Graduate Services as soon as possible to ensure that you will have a cap and gown to wear at graduation. If you need to borrow a gown from the school, please see Jill in the front office.

Rules for Cap Decorations, Regalia, and How to Wear Your Cap and Gown

Churchill allows graduates to express themselves by decorating their caps for graduation. All cap decorations must be school-appropriate and 2-dimensional. Nothing should stick up on top or hang down below the mortarboard. The mortarboard should be parallel to the ground.

Graduation gowns must be worn correctly, with fronts fully zipped over school-appropriate clothing. Administrators may check under gowns if they suspect inappropriate dress or items that do not belong on the graduation stage, such as noisemakers, beach balls, or other props.

Honor cords, stoles, medals, and pins are provided through the school or district and must be approved by the school administration. Culturally-significant regalia is permitted. Culturally-significant regalia includes ceremonial accessories or attire that are significant to the graduate’s culture as a whole and appropriate to that culture’s traditional rites of passage. This does not include items that are of personal significance to the graduate. School-appropriate jewelry and items of personal significance may be worn in a way that does not detract from the uniform appearance of the cap and gown.

Please review the Graduation Information Presentation for more details and examples of appropriate and inappropriate dress and cap decorations.


Ticket lottery requests have been processed and we are now sold out of extra tickets. Extra tickets were evenly distributed among the students who requested them. Students who requested more than four extra tickets will receive 4 or 5 extra tickets. No student will receive more than 5 extra tickets.

Lottery tickets will be available to pick up on Tuesday. We are moving ticket pick up to the auditorium during student lunch on Tuesday and Wednesday only in anticipation of long lines and to reduce crowding in the Career Center. On Thursday and Friday, ticket pick up will return to Jill’s office during lunch.

You can still pick up your six reserved tickets. Please review the checklist to make sure you are cleared to graduate. Here’s what we need to know when you come to pick up your tickets:

  • Your name and student number
  • You are cleared on the checklist
  • The total number of tickets you will need (maximum of 6)
  • The total number (if any) of your guests who will be in a wheelchair or using a walker
  • The total number (if any) of your guests who will need an interpreter and the language they need

The Checklist

2019 Graduation Checklist 0524 (updated 5/24/2019)

Students cannot pick up graduation tickets or participate in the graduation ceremony until all columns on the checklist are checked off.

  • 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, the student number appears under the student’s portrait in the top left corner.
  • A check mark means that your requirements for that column are complete.


Walking Partner and Seating Sign Up May 13–31

Your walking partner is the person you walk next to in the graduation procession. Seating on the graduation stage is assigned randomly. If you want to be seated next to a specific person, you will need to sign up for a walking partner. You may request a walking partner when you pick up your graduation tickets. Both walking partners must be cleared to graduate.
