Seniors and Parents
Senior Information Sheets and Parent Response Forms are available on the Counseling web site. These forms are used to assist counselors in writing letters of recommendation for colleges and scholarships. They allow students and parents to highlight important attributes and high school experiences they would like included in the counselor's letter of recommendation.
Senior Advisement will be held Thursday, August 24, during all lunches. Seniors should report to the auditorium for the first 30 minutes of their lunch period. Counselors will be on hand to review the college admissions process. The presentation will include an overview of college application components, Cambridge processes and timelines for requesting transcripts and letters of recommendation, and insight into scholarships including the HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarships. Graduation curriculum requirements will also be reviewed.
There will be a Senior Parent Meeting Monday, August 28, at 6:30 pm in the Auditorium. The Counseling department will present: Guide to College Admissions. This is the information shared during Senior Advisement.
Cambridge Open House
Cambridge High School's Open House will be held Thursday, August 24, 2017, beginning at 6:30 pm. Prior to the Open House, we will have a meeting for parents of students in our TAG program starting at 5:45 pm, in the auditorium. Copies of 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.
During your student's lunch period on the agenda, you can visit the cafeteria to join the PTSA and visit with our business partners. 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. Our school Store, "Bear Necessities" will be open at 6:00 am to purchase spirit wear.
We are expecting a large number of parents to attend the Open House, so please plan for a crowded parking lot. 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 office building parking lot next to Stonecreek is not available for parking.
