Graduation Information

Graduation is one of the most important traditions of our school year. Students, family, staff, and friends gather to celebrate the hard work and accomplishments of the graduating class.

2024 Senior Awards Night

The 2024 Senior Awards Night is TBA. In addition to seniors receiving community-based awards, seniors in the National Honor Society and seniors who are named OSAA Athlete Scholars and/or OSAA Activity Scholars will also be recognized.

Senior Exit Survey

Complete the Senior Exit Survey, which is required for CHS graduation. All seniors must complete this form online. After you complete this online survey, you may come to Emily Dray in Beyond CHS/Room 120 or Emilie Zook at the Counseling Office window to get your blue sheet signed off.

Final Transcripts, AP Credits, Financial Aid

You are responsible for requesting that your final CHS transcript be sent to the school you are planning to attend, through your Parchment account. CHS will not send a final transcript for you! If you are planning to play a NCAA Division 1 or 2 varsity sport, you must also send your final CHS transcript to the NCAA through Parchment.

Seniors who have earned LBCC College Now credits are responsible for sending their final LBCC College Now transcripts to the community college, college, or university they plan to attend.

Seniors who have earned AP credits may send all of their scores to one college or university for free before June 20. To do so, log into your AP Account. Sign in to My AP, go to My AP Profile, select the Score Send tab, and choose the college, university, or scholarship organization that you want to receive your score report. Make sure to take advantage of your 2022 free score and send before the June 20 deadline. More information on this can be found online here.

Be sure to log in to your college or university account and accept any financial aid awards and grants (and any loans) you want to accept! Also, be sure you have fixed all outstanding issues with FAFSA or ORSAA.

Planning for Graduation

All graduates must have a CHS cap and gown and dress appropriately for the graduation ceremony.

  • Each fall, students have the opportunity to order caps, gowns, and graduation announcements from Miner’s, the official vendor for our district. Financial assistance scholarships are available through the school office.
  • When you receive your cap and gown, take it from the package and hang it up to help release the fold marks and wrinkles. Follow ironing instructions on the package.
  • Caps may be decorated. Decorations must be appropriate and no more than six inches high.
  • CHS has a Graduation Gown Bank that allows us to offer gowns to graduating students for whom the cost is prohibitive. Please consider reusing your student’s gown by saving it for younger siblings, passing it along to friends’ or neighbors’ seniors, or donating it. Just bring your gown to the CHS office after graduation and we’ll be glad to take it off your hands. Thank you!
