Senior Assembly June 3

On Friday, June 3, we are excited to hold our first all-school assembly since schools closed over two years ago. It seems only fitting that we start with a celebration of our seniors and all they have accomplished during those difficult years. Some awards will be presented, the class will be knighted, there may be dancing, and seniors can pick up their yearbooks at the end of the assembly.

See the full bell schedule here.

Financial Assistance for Graduation Activities

Being a senior can be expensive. Don’t let money prevent you from enjoying graduation activities. You got this far, and you deserve to celebrate. Visit Ken in the Finance Office for help with the Senior Breakfast, scholarships for the Graduation Party are available by contacting the party organizers, and Jill can help you borrow a cap and gown from the school.

 

Graduation Checklist

The Graduation Checklist will be updated weekly and published here and in the front office. Students cannot pick up graduation tickets or participate in the graduation ceremony until the “ADMIN CLEAR TO WALK” column on the checklist is checked off.

Remember, you must continue to pass your current classes to remain eligible to walk. Visit the Counseling page to schedule an appointment with your counselor.

Graduation Ticket Distribution Through June 10

There is no charge for tickets.

The Hult Center requires a ticket for every person who enters the hall, including infants. Beginning March 12, 2022, the Hult Center for the Performing Arts will no longer require mandatory face masks. The Hult Center’s public health requirements and information about their on-site testing service are listed on their website at https://hultcenter.org/health_safety/.

GRADUATING STUDENTS MUST BE CLEARED ON THE GRADUATION CHECKLIST IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THEIR GRADUATION CEREMONY TICKETS.

6 tickets are reserved for each graduating student. Students can request up to 8 additional tickets, which will be distributed by a lottery process.

Ticket distribution is at the CHS office during student lunch only.

Come prepared to answer these questions: 

  1. Do you need to request additional tickets? How many?
  2. Do any of your guests use a wheelchair or walker?
  3. Do any of your guests need interpretation? (CHS provides Spanish and ASL interpretation. Other languages may also be requested.)

May 31: Ticket distribution continues — ticket lottery distribution begins

  • students can pick up their 6 reserved tickets
  • students can pick up tickets requested through the lottery
  • ticket lottery requests will continue until all available tickets are assigned

June 10: Last day to pick up tickets at the CHS office

June 11: Unclaimed tickets will be distributed to graduates at the Hult Center at the end of graduation rehearsal, then to the public starting at 6:30 p.m. in the lobby.

View our complete ticket distribution policy here.

For questions, email Jill at reents_ji@4j.lane.edu.

 

Walking Partner Signup Ends June 3

Walking partner slips are available in Jill’s office. Your walking partner is the person who you walk and sit beside at graduation. Each walking pair only needs to fill out one walking partner slip. Requests will be accepted through June 3.

Before you Graduate: Save your School Data

When you finish your graduation requirements, you will be unenrolled and you will lose access to your 4J Gmail, Google Drive, StudentVUE, and other services that use your 4J sign-in, and your contact information will be removed from our communications lists.

Files (Google Drive): Copy any files and data that you wish to keep from your 4J accounts 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.

Emails and Contacts: Google Takeout (above) can save your Gmail contacts, but it will not export your emails. The easiest way to save emails from your Student Gmail account is to forward them to your personal email address.

Naviance: If you are using your 4J email address for your Naviance account, you must change it to a personal email to avoid losing access to Naviance.

Early Grads: Walking in Graduation

Early graduates who want to walk in the graduation ceremony and receive news and updates about graduation, please contact Jill Reents at reents_ji@4j.lane.edu or 541-790-5112. She will add your name to the graduation checklist and your preferred contact information to the Graduation at a G’Lance distribution list.

 

Graduation Party 2022
