School Governance Council Survey
Cambridge High School's School Governance Council is seeking your assistance. We truly do value your opinion and welcome your input as we begin work on the school's strategic plan. Our goal is to find out what parents think is working well at Cambridge versus areas in which we need to improve. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey. The survey closes out on April 16, 2014. We cannot do this without your help.
AP and EOCT Review Sessions
Students - Please take advantage of the opportunity to prepare for Advanced Placement exams and EOCTs with these special review sessions. Review sessions begin as early as Thursday, April 17 and are available through Friday, May 9. Sign-up for the review sessions for a variety of courses here.
Graduation Cap and Gown Order
If you have not ordered your cap and gown for graduation, please do so immediately by contacting Balfour at 770.594.8155. A $10 late fee has already been added. There will be an additional $10 late fee added beginning April 1. Please note that the cap and gown fee is paid to Balfour and is not included in senior dues.
Balfour will be at Cambridge on Friday, March 28, during all lunches, to distribute caps and gowns that have been ordered. If your student does not pick up their cap and gown on Friday, they will be available in the Guidance Office.
Senior Graduation Yard Signs
Senior graduation yard signs are available for $20. Download an order form here or pick one up in the front office. All order forms must be complete and include a check made out to CHS no later than Tuesday, April 15. Yards signs will be available for pick up on Friday, May 9.
Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, teachers, neighbors, clergy, and friends may send their seniors a special letter, or card, of congratulations on his or her upcoming graduation. We will keep these cards and letters for each student and present them at graduation practice on May 22. Every senior will receive a Cambridge Commemorative envelope containing messages and well wishes.
You can drop off your cards and letters at the front office in the box labeled Cambridge Commemoratives, or you can mail them to the school using the following address:
(Student's Full Name)
c/o Cambridge High School
Fairyal Halim: Cambridge Commemoratives
2845 Bethany Bend
Milton, GA 30004
All cards and letters sent to the school, or dropped off, must be marked with student's name and "Cambridge Commemoratives" on the outside to ensure delivery. Please keep in mind that letters will be collected for more than 200 students. It is imperative that you follow these guidelines:
- Send only cards or letters 8 ½" x 11", or smaller
- Do not send packages of any kind
- Do not send anything of value (i.e. cash, checks, gift cards); we cannot be responsible for it.
- If sending several envelopes inside a larger one, put student's full name on all pieces.
- Keep letters and cards flat
The college a student plans to attend after graduation will require an official final transcript to verify graduation from high school. Final transcripts cannot be processed until after final grades are posted during post-planning, after the school year has ended. All graduating seniors are required to turn in a Final Transcript Request form to the Guidance Office by May 2nd. If the final transcript is being sent to a college outside the state of Georgia, to an organization, or to a specific person (sorority or fraternity), a stamped, addressed envelope must be provided. If the final transcript is being sent to a college in the state of Georgia, an envelope does not need to be provided.
If the student is not attending a college, he/she should write one of the following on the form: "none" or "military" or "work". Students may also enter their home address to have the transcript sent to them directly. Additional instructions are provided on the Final Transcript Request form. The form will be handed out to seniors at the start of all three lunches on Friday, April 18, in a short, mandatory senior meeting in the Auditorium. Anyone absent that day can pick up their form from the Guidance Office.
