CHS Parent Update
Welcome Back to School 2017-2018 Pre-Season Issue #1
Additionally, we will provide a weekly parent bulletin (you are reading the first issue) which will help keep you apprised of important information you should be aware of (In the Know), and events that are coming up (Looking Forward), and special call outs (Kudos) as appropriate. We will also send a copy of the G'Lancer 5 times during the school year. One issue comes out before school starts (already sent), then the next three come out at the beginning of each trimester, and finally the last issue is sent
Just a side note - We pride our selves on providing a quick turn around on phone calls and offering excellent customer service. If you call and leave a message with us please leave a phone number. Our phone systems does not have caller ID and it is surprising the number of phone messages we receive with no return phone number. Please make sure you add this if you are hoping to get a return call.
While we are focusing on improving our attendance rates. Parents and guardians of our students are essential partners in this goal. Please have your student(s) complete this survey. The survey will be available through August 24th.
New students should try to complete enrollment before registration day. Our registrar is available during our summer office hours, Monday–Thursday, 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m., closed on Fridays. Enrollments will be accepted on registration days, but we encourage you to enroll ahead of time to help your registration day run smoothly.
You may pick up enrollment paperwork at the office or print it HERE (scroll to the bottom of the page) and bring it to the office. You will also need your state-issued photo ID, two proofs of address, immunization record, and previous high school transcript (if you have one). Refer to the enrollment forms for a list of acceptable ID and proof of address.
All students are expected to attend registration. Students will receive class schedules, pay fees, take school photos and get student ID cards, buy parking passes, turn in free/reduced meal forms, sign up for lockers, and more. (Note: all students receive a student ID card free of charge. Students who choose to purchase an ASB card will receive an ID card with an ASB seal.)

Drama Advisor Named - Alex Patton
I wanted to let you know where we stand with our drama/theater program at Churchill High School. We are excited to share with you that our very own CHS Math Teacher Alex Patton is going to lead the theater and musical productions and the after school Thespian Club for the 2017-2018 school year. Alex has a wealth of experiences in the theater realm and has had extensive background in acting and leading students in theatrical productions. You may have seen Alex perform in the recent production of "Sweeney Todd". Alex will be reaching out to interested families and students about upcoming meetings, productions and other events as we get the school year started. As we look at our forecasting and staffing for the 2018-2019 school year we will be working FTE back into the staffing plan which focuses on hiring a new and permanent Drama teacher. Thank you for your patience with us as we navigate this transition.
On Monday, August 21, the sun will begin to drop behind the Moon’s shadow beginning around 8:45 am and will be at maximum totality around 10:15 am for 2 min. and 30 sec. and take another hour and half for the full sun to be visible again. Eugene is just slightly off the path of totality, but this will be still in the 95th percentile of totality. This is an amazing life opportunity to experience this natural spectacle, but to do so safely, the public is advised to wear proper solar eclipse glasses that they can picked up at our Eugene Library beginning Monday, Aug. 14 until before the day of the eclipse, but on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Eugene Library is holding several upcoming events about the Solar Eclipse and you can learn more here: https://www.eugene-or.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=3040
For those unable to secure their own solar eclipse glasses, they should still follow safe viewing techniques by using pin hole projectors and referring to these safety guidelines: https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/safety
Everyone is welcome to use this simulator to put in their location to see a simulation of what it will look like where they are located: https://eclipsemega.movie/simulator?lat=44.0520691&lng=-123.08675360000001
The City of Eugene Recreation is having a viewing party at Skinner’s Butte with shuttles from Campbell Community Center the day of: https://www.eugene-or.gov/calendar.aspx?eid=13010There are tons of resources, activities, events, and video simulations to explain what they are seeing on the official NASA Eclipse 2017 website: https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/
