Extra tickets are sold out. No more lottery requests will be accepted.

Any unclaimed tickets will be made available at graduation rehearsal on the morning of June 12. First priority will be given to students who have not received any tickets, and then to students who have already picked up their six reserved tickets. After distributing reserved tickets, the remaining tickets will be distributed one at a time, first-come-first-served, until all tickets are gone. Parents are not invited to attend the rehearsal. Please contact Jill if you need an exception.

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

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.

Donating or Returning your Gown

Gowns borrowed from Churchill are due back to the school before you may pick up your diploma. The cap and tassel are yours to keep.

Please consider donating your gown for future graduations. Gown donations are accepted in the front office at any time.
