PAWS Registration - 2nd Semester
PAWS Registration for 2nd Semester OPEN until Wednesday, December 11 at 8:25am
What is PAWS?
At Cambridge, people are always willing to share and support students and one another. During PAWS time, we take the talents of our faculty and staff and share them with students. We offer academic support programs like Math or Biology Support, unique learning opportunities like Science in Film and Creative Writing, and special interest choices like Old Fashioned Games and Student Council. We welcome each of you to request three PAWS choices that match your needs or are of interest to you, and we hope you will enjoy our environment of enhanced learning. There are over 100 PAWS offerings, so please read through the choices entirely before making your selection.
ALL students must complete each field in order for your PAWS requests to be received. All requests must be entered before 8:25 am on Wednesday, December 11 to be scheduled in the first round of scheduling. All late requests will be processed after the on-time requests. Every effort will be made to accommodate one of your requests or a PAWS program similar to it.
ALL seniors much complete a PAWS request. If you request Early Release and were scheduled for Early Release during first semester, then all you need to do is choose Early Release. If you have not been scheduled for Early Release before, then you MUST complete the Early Release permission form available at cambridgehs.org and return it to the main office. You will not be scheduled for Early Release until your permission form has been processed. Seniors who do not complete the PAWS registration process or permission form, will be scheduled into a PAWS offering which they must attend.

Spring Semester Class Schedule
House Bill 1176 affects our protocol for reporting child abuse and neglect. As a result, all volunteers for our school who work with children must complete a Volunteer Safety Information Form and complete training on Child Abuse and Neglect. The training is a ten minute online presentation outlining your responsibility for reporting child abuse or neglect and the protocol for such reporting.
At the completion of the online training, you will be given an opportunity to print a Certificate of Completion. Your completed Volunteer Safety Information Form, training certificate, and a copy of your driver's license should be submitted to the Administration Office as soon as possible.
This policy includes all volunteers: sports, performing arts, and PTSA volunteers. If you have any questions about the training or the submission of this form, please contact Anne McCollum.
