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.

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!
Here Comes the Bus Tracking App
Fulton County Schools launched a free app called "Here Comes The Bus" that allows parents to track their student's school bus. The app uses GPS technology to locate and track a school bus. Similar to ride-sharing apps, buses will show up as an icon on a map, and parents can follow its progress at the bus moves toward their child's stop.
To sign up, parents need their child's student ID number and the Fulton County Schools' code – 87428. After completing a brief user profile, the app is ready to use. Multiple students in the same household can be put on the same account, and using their Launchpad login, students can download the app to their cell phones or other personal devices to view their bus status.
The app is available through the Apple App Store and Google Play Store or parents can visit www.herecomesthebus.com to sign up. More information, including FAQs and troubleshooting information, also is posted here: https://tinyurl.com/HCTBapp.
Change Form Now Open
Students have the flexibility to change their PAWS as their interests and academic needs change. The PAWS Change Request Form can be found on the right-side bar. Please note that academic changes will take priority and students are to follow their current schedule until they receive a new schedule indicating that their change was made.
Parents, students are asked to complete the PAWS request form to advocate for their interest or where they need support. Should a student require support in a specific subject area, the student's teacher, grade-level administrator, or counselor will request to have a student's PAWS schedule change to support that need.
From the Clinic
Karen Thimsen, Clinic Assistant
There is always quite a lot of illness at the beginning of the school year every year. If your student has a temp of 100.4 or more, Fulton County Schools requires that they stay home and can return to school only when they are fever free without the aid of medication for 24 hours. If you take your ill student to the doctor and find that they have an illness such as mono, strep or flu, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 470-254-2536. Please let me know what symptoms he/she has had and the date they started. We need to track these illnesses because if there are several cases, we let all Cambridge parents know so they may watch for the same symptoms in their students and hopefully stop the spread of a contagious illness. Thanks so much, and please feel free to contact me with any questions.

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:
Thursday, October 4, 2018 - Cambridge Professional Learning Day
