Graduation Package Price Increase November 1
If you have not ordered your Graduation Package, please order it today at the lowest price of $125.00! The senior Graduation Package includes:
- Cambridge custom graduation gown
- Stole with the Cambridge crest insignia
- Cap and 2022 tassel
- Diploma and diploma cover
- Graduation ceremony and rehearsal venue
In today’s economy, we anticipate an increase in venue expenses and possible delays in ordering materials, as well as shipping delays. We encourage you to order your Graduation Package today, at our lowest price, to ensure your senior’s cap and gown arrives on time. Beginning November 1, we will increase the package price to $135.00 to offset the increase in costs.
Our goal is that all senior families order their Graduation Package before the end of the semester, December 17, 2021. This will allow 3rd Ascent time to ensure all caps and gowns arrive on time. Please know that families in need can reach out to their Guidance Counselor, or our Social Worker, for assistance. If you need help, we ask that you reach out to them today.
The Graduation Package will increase to $160.00 on February 2, 2022, to cover expediting and shipping costs for last-minute cap and gown orders.

The Bridge Ensemble at Cambridge High School is pleased to present its first play of the season, and our GHSA Contest Play, Marie Antoinette by David Adjmi, on October 15 and 16, 2021, at 7:00 pm, and October 16, 2021, at 2:00 pm.
In David Adjmi’s contemporary take on the young queen of France, Marie is a confection created by a society that values extravagance and artifice. But France’s love affair with the royals sours as revolution brews, and for Marie, the political suddenly becomes very personal. From the light and breezy banter at the palace to the surging chants of “Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité!” in the streets, Marie Antoinette holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death.
This performance is rated PG13 for some strong language and situations. Tickets may be purchased at www.cambridgetheatre.org by clicking on ‘Get Tickets.’
Message from FCS Transportation
School bus safety is a top priority for our district. While parents may sometimes have complaints, comments, or suggestions for bus drivers, it is essential to understand our buses run on very specific schedules. Please do not board the bus for any reason. It is illegal in the state of Georgia to impede a school bus. If you would like to speak with someone about your bus route or have a concern, please give a note to your school bus driver with your name, bus stop location, and contact information so our Transportation department can get back to you. We look forward to delivering your students safely to and from school.
