Student ID Policy
School Safety and Security Plan
Last week we distributed student IDs, card cases, and Cambridge lanyards to students during their Cambridge English classes. Students with college on-campus English classes will receive their IDs this week. As part of our safety and security plan, we are implementing a policy such that all students must wear an ID at all times. IDs should be worn around the neck and visible. By ensuring all staff, students, and visitors have some identification on them at all times; we can better ensure that the people in our building, should be in our building. We ask that all parents and guardians help us in this safety measure by ensuring that your student has his/her ID on them each day.

Students with no English class on campus should pick their IDs up from the front office. Students who did not have their picture taken this year (picture day, senior portrait, or make-up) will not have an ID on distribution day. These students may use last year's ID (if they have one) until they get a current ID. These students should stop by the front office to receive their lanyard. The front office will notify all students missing an ID about having their ID made.

Please note that if a student loses his/her ID, it will cost $5 to replace the ID and if a student loses their ID and lanyard, it will cost $10 to replace all items.

Spring Semester Dual Enrollment
Deadline - November 30
All students who wish to participate in spring dual enrollment classes must have applied to the college (if required - by college deadline) and submitted their signed Student Participation Agreement and Class Schedule to Ms. Wilson no later than Friday, November 30, 2018.   Any forms received after this date will not be accepted.  Please contact Mrs. Wilson, Dual Enrollment Liaison at wilsonrm1@fultonschools.org  or your counselor with any questions.

Homework Help During GROWL
Next GROWL - November 7
We are so excited to add "Homework Help" sessions to our GROWL program on Wednesdays.  Does your 9th grader need help understanding their homework? Perhaps they need someone to read their essay and provide some feedback. Or maybe they are struggling with a concept and need someone to explain it to them again. We have a solution.

Cambridge National Honors Society students are volunteering their time to help 9th graders with their homework during study hall or intramural sports on GROWL days.  After attendance is taken in study hall or intramural sports, students may sign out of their class to report to room 1.116. Our National Honors Society students will be there to help with math, science, history, English, and Spanish.  

This is a great opportunity for 9th graders to get help with their homework. When they are finished getting help, they return to their study hall or sports.

Dear Cambridge Community, 

We would like to extend to you an invitation to play in our 4th Annual "Bears & Birdies Golf Classic". This great event will be held on Tuesday, November 7th at the beautiful Manor Golf & Country Club. This fundraising event is our single largest fundraiser and source of funds for Cambridge Baseball's Capital Improvements. With your contributions, generous donations, and participation, this fundraising event will help us build one of the finest Batting Facilities in the State of Georgia.  

Our golf event has sold out every year and everyone has a great time.  We will also have an abundance of Silent and Live Auction Items that you can bid on.  This event is fun, but more importantly your participation will help fuel the future success of the Cambridge Baseball Program. 

If you cannot play golf, but would like to participate by either donating items for the Silent and Live Auctions, sponsoring a hole, or attending the dinner, please email our Diamond Club:   cambridgebaseballclub@gmail.com. Thank you for your support!
