Graduation Survey Due May 5
This VERY BRIEF survey is required for graduation. During this school year, you have shown us what resilience looks like. We are proud of the work that you have done, of the learning you have accomplished, and the strength that you have shown. This survey helps us honor your accomplishments.
New Due Date for Virtual Graduation Student Uploads: May 10
We are extending the due date for students to complete their graduation profiles to May 10. If you have already completed your profile, you can still log in and make changes until May 10.
Graduating students have received an email invitation from email@example.com with the subject “Welcome to your Virtual Graduation” at their 4J email address. (Early graduates received the invitation at the email address they have provided for communications.) Make sure to check your junk mail if you don’t see the invitation in your inbox. If you did not receive the invitation, email Jill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Read the Student Portal Guide.
- Tips for a great photo.
- Help us honor you. Please enter a phonetic spelling of your name and record yourself saying your name. This will make it easier for us to pronounce it correctly for the ceremony.
- If you’re having trouble with the student portal, you may need to clear your browser cache. Here are instructions for clearing your cache in Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
- We do not recommend using your phone. Use your school-issued student computer or a personal computer.
Seniors. Grad Party. It’s a go!*
Mark your calendar for the evening of June 10 to celebrate your graduation with your classmates. Time and location to be announced as the event plan is finalized. More details will be revealed as the date approaches. It is sure to be a good time and an escape from Zoom to safely socialize and celebrate with your friends. A “real life,” in-person experience to put an exclamation mark at the end of a virtual senior year. Hope to see you there!
Support the graduation celebration with the following fundraisers:
June 2 – Crumble Cookies
Save the date and watch for the flyer to come. Purchases made between 3-6 p.m. with the fundraiser flyer will result in a donation in support of the grad party.
Senior Parents. Let’s do this!
Please get involved to help make the grad part and senior celebration a fantastic sendoff for the Class of 2021. Submit your contact information through the parent survey form and a parent committee member will be in contact. Thank you to those who have already offered to pitch in on the effort. There is no limit to the number of people who can help prepare and organize, finance through fundraising and donations, and staff the event.
The Facebook and Instagram accounts will continue to share information about senior events as we find ways to recognize and celebrate this milestone moment and work together to make something special out of these final months for the class of 2021.

Cap and Gown Pickup and Senior Celebration: May 21, 1:00–4:00 p.m.
All graduating students are invited to join us for the Senior Celebration. Parade through the Churchill parking lot in your vehicle (or come on foot if you need to). Churchill staff will cheer you on as you are knighted and receive your caps and gowns, honor cords, and student union stoles.
Scheduled times and more details will be shared when they are finalized.
Graduates will have the opportunity to have a photo taken in their cap and gown at this event. Each student will receive one photo at no cost (to be mailed later). Photography will be provided by Northwest Exposures.
Graduation Orders Have Arrived
Graduation announcements, sweatshirts, tassels, and other items ordered from Miners Graduate Services are in the front office. Students can pick them up after school at the front entrance, or come to our regular distribution events on the first and third Thursday of the month from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. The next distribution event is on May 6.
Caps and gowns will arrive in May and will be distributed on May 21.
You can still order your cap and gown and graduation announcements. Your late order may be subject to late fees and product restrictions.

Early Graduates (Graduating before June)
After you graduate, you are unenrolled from Churchill and 4J. Your contacts are removed from our communications lists and your 4J email, Google Drive, and other services that use your 4J sign-in are no longer accessible.
Walking in Graduation
Early graduates (graduating before term 3) who want to participate in the graduation ceremony and receive news and updates about graduation, please contact Jill Reents at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-790-5112. She will add your name to the graduation checklist and your preferred contact information to a special distribution list for the Graduation at a G’Lance.
Saving your Data
Before you graduate, copy any files and data from your 4J accounts that you wish to keep to a personal device, external drive, or personal Google Drive. For instructions on using Google Takeout to download your 4J Google data, visit 4j.lane.edu/technology/ns/googletakeout.
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.
