In The Know

Gay Pride Month - Here at Churchill High School we have a Collective Commitment to welcome, respect, and honor people of all races, all religions, all countries of origin, all sexual orientations, all genders, all abilities. Our diversity is our strength and we are united in our Lancer Pride. This month we celebrate Gay Pride. We are showing our support and respect for all sexual orientations and genders. This is a month to celebrate, appreciate, and to learn more. Please join me in celebrating our students and showing them that they matter, are valued, and respected, but also that they have a safe space and home here at Churchill High School.

DIPLOMA PICKUP

Kudos

I missed two very important KUDOS last week and would like to acknowledge them here and now. Last week on the same evening we were able to promote the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Symposium hosted by Mary Beth Hepp-Elam and also the Unified Basketball game hosted by Jen Williams on her birthday. We are blessed to have two very important and valuable staff members who might work on completely different aspects of Churchill High School, but work for the same purpose and that is to provide excellence everyday for every Lancer. Thank-you's go out to Jen for her work with inclusionary practices making kids feel welcomed and valued in school and to Mary Beth for highlighting non-traditional programs that women excel in and need more exposure. You both have opened doors for students and shown them that they matter and that we want to provide options and excellence for each our our kids. A huge and heart felt thank you.




From Katy McAuliffe - Kudos to Keith, Dan, and Nick (and Collin in spirit!) for all their work Friday. In addition to his regular duties...

6:30 a.m. - Alarms off - Keith CLEANS what didn't get done on Thursday night due to being short-handed the previous night-- actually, the whole week.

10:00 a.m. - Senior Assembly - Keith then CLEANS out the bleachers and CLEANS the gym floor of blue balloon shreds (Elizabeth and Leadership kids help.)

12:00 p.m. - Lunch - Keith CLEANS up after lunch -- inside tables, outdoor tables, and all garbage containers in preparation for

12:45 p.m. Spring Fest! (Yay! Woo Hoo! Fun-Fun!)

12:48 p.m. - Dunk Tank - Keith stops what he's doing to let in the dunk tank truck, then finds an industrial hose (faster filling), and connects to water.

1:45 p.m. - 5th period - Keith and Night Crew (er, rather, Night Two) CLEAN UP paint on indoor tables, paint on outdoor tables, cotton candy, cotton candy paper cones, dirt from the plants, colors from tie dyes, and they empty the garbage containers (Elizabeth and Leadership do a great job helping again.)

2:40 p.m. - Fire Drill! (Student Confusion! Parents! Fire Trucks!)

3:30-ish p.m. - Crew continues to CLEAN the school, especially around the auditorium due to

7:00 p.m. - Lancer Pageant! (More fun! Frivolities! Festiveness!)

9:00 p.m. - Families and staff depart. Keith is seen passed out exhausted under a table. The Crew CLEANS around him.



Congratulations to Ian Ogden and his amazing AVID Seniors. Saturday was a very moving event. If you haven't been to an AVID Graduation you should attend sometime. It is truly moving and emotional. It was the largest group of graduates we have ever had (that is saying a lot as this group survived the pandemic and didn't shrink is size). It was also the most well attended. We've never had that many visitors for AVID graduation. Thank you Ian for making such a powerful impression on you students and leaving a remarkable legacy.
