Grad 2020 - Update

Hello students and parents/guardians,

Some of you have reached out to me regarding Grad 2020 - thank you for connecting! I don't have an update at the moment, except to say that we continue to monitor the global pandemic situation. Any guidelines around social distancing, crowd size restrictions, and the public gatherings will come from various levels of government. Our school, and school division, will share more information as it becomes available. I know that this response can be frustrating. Our primary focus right now will be on the safety, health, and wellness of our Churchill Family, and of course student learning, as we move forward. If more information regarding Grad 2020 becomes available, I will share it just as soon as I can.

*Grad Gown Measurements: Please go to see Sarah or Eric in the Learning Commons to get measured for your grad gown. 

*Grad Checks: Grade 12 advisees, please go see your advisors! They are working hard to complete your grad checks. If you are planning to return in the fall, you must see your advisor for that as well.

Grad Directorate Club: Grad Directorate, the student club that meets to plan for Grad 2020, gets together once per week on Thursdays in Room 3 (Lindsey's classroom). The purpose of this time is to plan for our Churchill Grad-related events this school year. Many decisions have been made already this year, such as: 

  • Theme: Starry Nights / Great Gatsby *hybrid theme*
  • Colour Combinations: Black and Silver, with dark royal blue (almost purple) 
  • Grad Quotes: 3 quotes have been chosen
  • Venue: Lethbridge College 
  • Next decisions to make: Grad songs & Saturday evening program plan

Grad Hoodies: Grad Hoodies are ready to pick up. Please see Laura in the office and she will give you your hoodie.

Grad Fees: All grad fees have been added to School Cash Online for grade twelve students. These are currently payable online. If you would like to make other arrangements, please come to the office to meet with our Business Manager, Laura.
