Cambridge High School will hold Open House on Thursday, August 25, starting at 6:30 pm.
Prior to the Open House there will be a meeting for parents of students in the TAG program
starting at 5:45 pm, in the auditorium.

Student schedules will be available for pick up in the school's main lobby starting at 5:30 pm.
To avoid lines to pick up your student's schedule, ask your student to provide you with his/her
schedule and room numbers if possible. Student schedules are also available on Home Access
Center.

We are expecting a large number of parents to attend the Open House and parking lots will be
crowded. The access road from Hwy. 9 will be open beginning at 5:30 pm. Stonecreek Church's
parking lot can also be used as overflow parking. Please note that the parking lot belonging to
the office building next to Stonecreek is not available for parking.

Please find the agenda for Thursday evening below. During your student's lunch period on the
agenda, you can visit the cafeteria to purchase spirit wear, join the PTSA, purchase Cambridge
All Sports Athletic Passes, or visit our new Student Center, You can also receive your Home
Access Center sign-on information, or complete your 9th Grade Residency Verification Form in
the main lobby. Parents of 9th Grade students are encouraged to visit their student's CLAWS
teacher to learn more about the CLAWS program.

For your convenience, you can dowload or view our school map here. Copies will also be available in the lobby.

Nominations Open for The Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce Emerging Leaders Program
The Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce sponsors a Leadership program called The Emerging Leaders (ELP). This is a unique opportunity for Juniors in High School to develop leadership skills, identify and address community issues, interact with other area students and meet local leaders. This is accomplished through a combination of interactive lectures, discussions, site visits, community service and networking. 

The program consists of four class days and two community service activities.  Each class focuses on topics such as public safety, government, interviewing skills, personal finances, nonprofits, and the environment. All classes are on either teacher work days or Professional Development days so students do not miss school.

For more details, please visit the Chamber of Commerce website.  All forms are available on the website. Applications are due September 8 and the fee has just been reduced to $200. Corporate sponsorships and scholarships are available for qualifying students. In the past our students have visited the State Capitol and visited with policy makers thus gaining invaluable experiences in the workings of our government.
