Graduation at a G’Lance, December 2, 2020

In This Issue

Churchill Class of 2021 and Families,

Churchill’s 2021 graduation ceremony is Friday, June 11, 2020, at 7:00 p.m. at the Hult Center’s Silva Concert Hall. (*The 2021 graduation ceremony may be canceled, rescheduled, or relocated depending on public health conditions.*)

June will be here in the blink of an eye, but there is still a lot to do before it arrives. To help you stay on track, you will receive 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 a list of contacts to help you along the way.

We were overjoyed that so many of you joined us for the senior meeting on November 5. We can hardly believe that that was a whole month ago. Links to the presentation and a recording of the meeting are posted on the Graduation! page.

The first deadlines are quickly approaching. Keep reading for details.

Best wishes,
Churchill Faculty and Staff

Grad Party

Each 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 your contact information and help you get the word out.

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.
