State Math Tournament Winners
Congratulations Cambridge Math Team
 
Congratulations to the Cambridge Math team who won the Class AAAAA championship in the 40th annual state mathematics tournament. Team members  Benjamin Lapid, Parth Kumar, Blake Quigley, and Cameron Chong (photo, L to R) were coached by Cambridge High School mathematics teacher David Pomerance photo, far left).

At the state competition students compete individually in a 50-question multiple-choice test and a speed round followed by teams working together to complete a set of a dozen challenging problems.  The questions came from topics included in the standard high school curriculum up to and including calculus, as well as topics not traditionally found in the curriculum, such as number theory and combinatorics.  

At the conclusion of the state tournament, the students selected for the All-State Math Team were announced.  Cambridge student Parth Kumar was selected for this team. This team will represent the state of Georgia at the nation-wide American Regions Math League (ARML) tournament on June 4, 2016.
2016 Keizai Koho Center Teacher Fellowship
Mr. Wallace
Cambridge AP Economics teacher Brian Wallace was awarded a 2016 Keizai Koho Center Teacher Fellowship to travel and study in Japan from June 27th to July 6th, this summer. Mr. Wallace was one of only ten teachers selected nationally for this fully-funded fellowship and the only teacher selected from Georgia. Through this program, fellows will have the opportunity to learn about the Japanese economy, various businesses, and contemporary Japanese society, as well as participate in roundtable discussions with educators and business leaders during a ten-day stay in Japan.

Highlights of the fellowship include visits to Japanese schools, major companies, and industrial facilities. In addition, home stay and sightseeing excursions are planned to allow the fellows to learn about Japanese culture and society.

The Keizai Koho Center (KKC) is an independent, nonprofit organization affiliated with Keidanren (Japan Business Federation). Established in 1978, Keizai Koho Center has served as a platform for the Japanese business community to interact with key stakeholders inside and outside of Japan. Inquiries regarding the 2016 KKC Fellowship may be directed to Katsuko Shellhammer at kkcfellowship@us-japan.org.

Students are expected to be present and on time on all testing days. If a student must miss a final exam due to illness, the parent/guardian must call the Attendance Office on the day of the absence in order for the student to take his/her exam on the make-up days. If the Attendance Office is not alerted, the absence will be considered unexcused.

All other missed exams must receive prior approval by the student's grade-level administrator. To obtain approval the parent/guardian should email the administrator by Friday, May 13, 2016. Please include the date(s) to be missed, the subject
name(s), the teacher name(s), and reason for the missed exam.

Wednesday, June 1 - 9:00 am until 12:00 pm

Late Arrivals - Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
The first exam periods on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (May 24, 25, 26) are also lunch periods. During lunch periods, students who have lunch will remain in the cafeteria and will use the time to study for final exams. During final exams, Study Hall will not meet.

Your student may arrive late rather than attend during his/her lunch period. If your student is arriving late on one of the half-day final exam days, he/she must arrive by 10:35 am. Students arriving late will remain in the cafeteria until it is time to move to the 10:40 am exam. Students riding in car pool must enter through the cafeteria doors on the north side of the building (facing Kings Ridge). Student drivers must enter through the rear or cafeteria doors and proceed directly to the cafeteria. Do not drop your student off at the front doors as they will be directed to the cafeteria side entrance. Students cannot be in the academic halls during testing.
 
Checking Students Out
Students will not be allowed to check out while exams are in progress or during exam periods. Classrooms cannot be disturbed, and students will not be allowed in the academic halls.
Cambridge Counseling Update

Students Not Returning to Cambridge Next Year
The normal turnaround time for processing withdrawals is 48 hours, however at the end of the year we need as much notice as possible. It is not too soon to let us know you will be withdrawing at the end of this semester. Please contact Nancy Sheridan in the Counseling Office as soon as possible if your student will not be returning next year so she can start the process.  

We will need to k
.
now the name of the school your child will be attending next year and your new address if you are moving.  All books will need to be returned to Ms. Sheridan in the Counseling Office once they are no longer needed to study for finals (the exception being any media center books would need to be returned to the Media Center).  

The authorized parent/guardian will also need to come into the guidance office to sign the withdrawal form prior to the last day of school. Once all books have been returned, and the paperwork is completed, you or your student can pick up the withdrawal packet to take to the new school. The new school will send a records request to Cambridge once they are enrolled.  

Final Transcript Request - Seniors
The Final Transcript Request form for Seniors was due to the Counseling Department by May 2, 2016. We have seniors who have not turned in their form, or who have turned it in but not actually requested their final transcript in Parchment and marked hold for grades. This form is required for all seniors  and needs to be completed as soon as possible regardless if they are going to work, military, technical school, or delaying college. Failure to turn this in will result in your diploma being held until your transcript is requested and your form is turned in. Please have your student come by the counseling office if your student needs help or to verify his/her request was received. Ms. Sheridan is available in the afternoons through Thursday and in the mornings on Friday.
