A Time to Celebrate

This time of year is one of the busiest but also one of my favorite!  Next week we will start our testing season, and it is hard to believe that graduation will be here soon!  I am very proud that each spring we take time to celebrate the accomplishments of our school and our amazing students.  This week we were recognized as an outstanding high school due to our students' performance in AP courses as well as our overall participation.  We are very proud that Cambridge High School has been named an AP Merit School for having 20% of our students participate in at least one AP course, as well as an AP STEM School, and an AP Humanities School.  Cambridge was also named an AP STEM Achievement School for having over 40% of our students taking an AP course score a three or better on the exam.

The celebration only begins there!  Over the next week, we will be celebrating the achievements of over 500 of our fantastic students. On Monday we will hold our annual Honors' Night in which students will be recognized for their academic accomplishments.  Students received invitations to Honors' Night this week.  In addition, we will recognize our VIP students in our annual VIP Breakfast ceremony on Friday, starting at 7:45 am.  Each staff member was asked to recognize one or two students who have served as positive citizens in their class and around our school. These students have had a positive impact on our teachers and are recognized as a Cambridge VIPs.  Students recognized as VIPs will receive their invitations early next week.

Our largest celebration will be when we honor and recognize the "Class of 2018" at graduation on Thursday, May 24, at 7:30 pm. There will be more information forthcoming about our graduation ceremony.

This time of year, there is more pressure and stress on our students to perform on high stakes testing and also some of our athletic programs head into state playoffs.  It is important that we not put all our focus on results of test scores or final grades, but recognize the efforts of all our students, and the progress they have made in making our high school one of the highest performing high schools in our nation.  I could not be more proud of our students, for their hard work in the classroom and their positive behavior around our school.  Go Bears!

Dr. Spurka

End of Course Testing (EOC)

Week one - April 23 - 27

Note some test locations have changed for week one (4.22.18), see Testing Locations below.

Testing Locations

Monday we begin EOC testing for all students taking Economics, US History, 9th Literature, and 11th Literature. Testing dates include all classroom and online students for EOC subjects. To accommodate EOC testing this year, EOC exams will be taken before the academic day begins. The academic day will begin on a delayed start (see schedule below).

Students who are not testing are not required to be at school until the academic day begins. Buses will run on their regular schedule and students arriving before 8:20 am will report to the cafeteria. Students arriving after 8:20 am and before the end of EOC testing for that day must enter the school through the cafeteria doors. Parents/guardians dropping students off can enter through the Bethany Bend entrance and continue down the side of the building facing Kings Ridge and drop students off at the cafeteria doors. Cars should exit at the Cogburn Rd. entrance.

During testing, students cannot enter through the front doors or be in the academic halls. A limited number of passes to the Student Center will be available only through the cafeteria.

We encourage students to know where their testing location is before coming to school. For a list of all room assignments for week one, see  Student Testing. Students with accommodations should report to the room indicated on the room list. Once they report in, the proctor will give these students additional directions.

Additional information regarding EOC exams:

  • All EOC exams will be administered through students' Fulton County issued Microsoft Surface. If your student was not issued a Microsoft Surface, parents/guardians must request a Surface for their student by completing a Device Checkout form. Requests must be submitted as soon as possible. 
  • Students with Fulton County issued Microsoft Surfaces must have the DRC icon on their desktop. If your student does not have this icon, or if his/her Surface is not in working order, the student must take the Surface to the Student Center immediately have these issues corrected.  
  • Fulton County regularly pushes updates to student-issued Surfaces. Students must restart their device to receive these updates. Failure to receive updates may interfere with the optimal operation of a student's Surface. For more information and instructions on restarting the Surface, see Tech Tips for Students.  
  • During peak testing times, Fulton County Schools will be limiting access to several high-volume websites that take significant bandwidth away from our network. Specifically, on April 12, 16, 18, 23 and 24, from 7:30 am to 12:30 pm FCS will be limiting access to streaming video (YouTube) district wide. By taking this preventative measure, we will preserve our network bandwidth for online testing.

Seniors

Senior check out and scholarship award information

Fulton County requires all graduating seniors to submit their post-graduation plans electronically through the Senior Check Out Form by May 4th.  The link may be found on the homepage of the Counseling website under Announcements at www.cambridgehscounseling.org or by visiting https://tinyurl.com/BearCheckOut.  If the student is not planning on attending a college next year, he/she should write one of the following on the form: work, gap year, military or any other specific plan.  Additional instructions are provided on the Senior Check Out Form. 

An official FINAL transcript is required by the college a student plans to attend to verify graduation from high school. Final transcripts will be processed after the final grades are posted (tentative release date June 1st.)  The transcript needs to be requested through Parchment.com or the same online program that was used to send the initial transcript to the college for admissions (for example, Common Application, SEND Edu, or Parchment). If the final transcript is being sent to AN ORGANIZATION (Sorority, Fraternity, Scholarship, etc.) OR A PERSON, Parchment.com must be used. 

As part of senior check out, Fulton County also requires students to report their total scholarship amount awarded for their duration at college, including the HOPE and Zell Miller scholarships, at https://tinyurl.com/BearScholarship.   The collective total of the senior class will be shared at our graduation ceremony.  Scholarship information must be submitted by Friday, May 4th.

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.
