21st Century Learning
As the world changes, so do the essential skills our students need to be successful. This is the 21st Century, and as educators, we want to ensure our students learn the essential skills, knowledge, and dispositions needed to succeed in their adult life. We are currently preparing students for careers that may not even exist yet, and to solve problems we may not even know are problems yet. Teachers are incorporating 21st-century skills such as; communication, collaboration, problem-solving, critical thinking, and creativity along with course content. Today's classroom may be more personalized than what you might recall from your own high school learning experience; teachers facilitate learning to individual students' needs, skills, and interests.

School Board Approves Changes to 2018-2019 Calendar
At its August meeting, the Fulton County Board of Education voted to approve the Superintendent's recommendation to change the district's 2018-19 School Year Calendar.
This school year, November 6, 2018 has been changed from a regular school day, to a teacher work day. March 8, 2019 has been changed from a teacher work day, to a regular school day. The decision alleviates safety concerns raised by some parents and staff, allows for additional staff training on safety protocols, and maintains instructional time for Fulton students.
"The board's decision is consistent with other commitments they have made to ensure that our campuses remain safe at all times," said Fulton County Schools Superintendent Dr. Jeff Rose. "It's also important that our students and staff feel safe, and we want to assure parents and our employees that as a district, we continue to focus on safety and security."
Additionally, the School Board has expressed interest in addressing a long term solution through the legislative process.
Please find the revised Fulton County Calendar here.
Please note that Cambridge High School has additional Professional Learning days, granted by the School Governance Council. There is no school on these days. These dates are:
Tuesday, March 12, 2019 - Cambridge Professional Learning Day

PTSA - Red Ribbon Week
The Cambridge PTSA sponsored awareness activities with our students last week during the Red Ribbon campaign. The focus was to bring awareness to distracted or impaired driving. Students had the opportunity to try impairment goggles supplied by our business partner Drive Smart. Over 200 students attempted various activities using the goggles to simulate being impaired and to enforce the dangers of driving while impaired.
Students that participated were entered in a raffle. The six winners of the raffle were: Jett Johnston, Dillon Cooley, Thomas Parrott, Cara Beardon, Camille Lamkin, Sydney Fluent, and Ben McCoy. If students were not able to pick up their prize on Friday, they may pick it up in the office.

Cambridge Congratulates National Merit Semi-Finalist
Congratulations to Cambridge's four National Merit Semi-Finalists, Austin Farr, Christopher Fettes, Caroline Redick, and Nikita Savant. These four students are amongst the 16,000 Semifinalists, and may continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 million.
The National Merit Scholarship Program honors individual students who show exceptional academic ability and potential for success in rigorous college studies. Our four Cambridge students entered the program through achieving the highest-scoring entrants on their 2017 Preliminary SAT, and represent less than one percent of the nationwide pool of Semifinalists.
Way to go Austin, Christopher, Caroline, and Nikita!
