Class of 2018 Graduation and Senior Activities
Graduation will be held Thursday, May 24 at 7:30 pm in the Cambridge High School Stadium. All family and friends are invited to the ceremony; there is no limit to the number of guests. Gates to the stadium will open at 5:00 pm. There is handicapped accessible seating in the stadium and for those needing assistance, drop-off will be available in front of the stadium. Please see one of the on-duty police officers for assistance.
Due to the anticipated crowded parking, you are encouraged to be in the stadium by 7:00 pm, and to carpool if possible. Please note that the Highway 9 access point to the school will be closed. You will need to enter the school parking lot through the Bethany Bend or Cogburn Road entrances. We encourage you to drop off your senior to save school parking for family and friends.
Overflow parking will be available at Stone Creek Church and Kings Ridge Christian School (Cogburn Road entrance). We will have golf cart shuttles in the school and stadium parking lots, as well as Stone Creek Church and Kings Ridge should you need assistance.
Handicapped drop-off will be at the front of the stadium, with handicapped parking available in the baseball/softball parking lot. A state-permitted handicap tag is required for parking.
Chairs will be set up on the track (in front of the stands) for guests who may not be able to navigate the stadium stairs. Parents and guardians are welcome to view this option for their guest at 2:00 pm Wednesday, prior to graduation practice. Tents and chairs will also be set up on the north end of the stadium for anyone who needs shade.
Reminders for seniors
The evening of graduation seniors need to arrive at 6:00 pm in their caps and gowns. Girls will enter through the auditorium doors and report to the auditorium, the boys will enter through the gym doors and report to the auxiliary gym. Because the ceremony will be held on our football turf, please be reminded that shoes with heels cannot be worn on the field.
Graduation is a special time for our community. To establish a standard of dignity and excellence in our graduation ceremony at Cambridge High School, we ask for your assistance with the following:
- Graduates should dress appropriately for the occasion which includes
- Young men should wear a white shirt, tie, dress slacks, and dress shoes.
- Young ladies should wear a dress or blouse and skirt, and flat shoes.
- Graduates as well as family and friends are reminded that while we encourage celebrations for individuals during the ceremony, it is important to be sensitive to all guests' desire to hear their son's and/or daughter's diploma being conferred.
Graduation rain plan
Should we encounter bad weather the graduation ceremony will be put on hold until 9:00 pm (or until weather passes). If bad weather continues past 9:00 pm the ceremony will be moved to Friday, May 25, at 9:00 am in the Stadium. If bad weather continues into Friday, a decision will be made at 7:00 am to move the ceremony into the main gymnasium. A School Messenger from Cambridge High School will be sent to parents and guardians alerting them of the change of location at that time. If the ceremony is moved to the gymnasium, tickets will be used for admittance. Seniors will receive four (4) tickets in his/her commemorative packet at the Senior Dinner on Wednesday to use should we move indoors. Overflow seating with streaming live video of the ceremony will be available in the auditorium. Tickets will not be required for overflow seating.
Seniors are reminded to ensure issued Surfaces and accessories are returned in good working order. All textbooks and media center books should also be returned. All outstanding fines must be paid. Students who have not cleared all accounts will have their diplomas held until fees are satisfied. To inquire about outstanding Media Center fines (library books, devices, and accessories), please contact Laura Morgan at MorganL1@fultonschools.org.

If the form is correct, there is no need to return the form. Changes to the form will need to be made by April 27. Your student should return the form to the front office.
If your student has requested to take an online course by the May 24, 2018 deadline, they must register for the online course(s) through Fulton or Georgia Virtual Schools. Online courses cannot be requested after the May 24 deadline. Please refer to the instructions on the form for registration instructions.
Dual Enrollment courses require students to meet both the guidelines and the deadlines set-forth by both Fulton County Schools and by the dual enrollment institution of choice.

Governor's Honors Program
Finalist Representing Cambridge
Congratulations to Cherise Kim (Social Studies), Austin Farr (Engineering Computer & Software Engineering), and Param Bhandare (Engineering Computer & Software Engineering) GHP Finalist.
The Governor's Honors Program is a four-week summer residential program designed to provide intellectually gifted and artistically talented high school students challenging and enriching educational opportunities not usually available during the regular school year. Activities are designed to provide each participant with opportunities to acquire the skills, knowledge, and attitudes to become independent, life-long learners. Less than one percent of Georgia's 10th and 11th graders will be selected to attend the 2018 GHP. Being nominated to represent Cambridge High school in Fulton County Schools' district-level interviews is a testament to the student's abilities.
