Message from Ms. Agans
Sent Friday, May 13, 2022, from Ms. Agans
Congratulations to our seniors who are finishing up their year! A reminder that all feeder elementary schools have Senior Walks planned for May 18th at 1:30 pm – this includes Alpharetta Elementary, Birmingham Falls Elementary, Cogburn Woods Elementary, Manning Oaks Elementary, and Summit Hill Elementary. On May 19th, seniors are to report to Ameris for Graduation Practice at 3:15 pm. Then, on Friday, May 20th, all senior PTSA members are invited to the Senior Carnival at the stadium from 12 pm – 3 pm. Of course, the biggest event is Graduation on Tuesday, May 24th at Ameris Amphitheatre at 2:30 pm. Can’t wait to see these AMAZING seniors cross the stage and graduate! For up-to-date information on Graduation, please visit the senior page on our website. Congratulations Class of 2022!
While seniors are done, except for any remediation, our Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshman still have 9 days left in the semester. As mentioned in my previous emails, attendance is important – every day. At Cambridge, our teachers will be teaching and assessing up until the last day of school. All teachers will be giving a “gradeable experience” on the last day of school in their classes. Absences could result in zeroes, thus affecting your student’s overall average in the class. Please encourage your student to be present every day. Please go over grades with your child and encourage your child to use every opportunity for recovery. Freshman, Sophomores, and Juniors – let’s finish strong!
Fine Arts Diploma Seal Recipients
Please join me in congratulating the following graduating seniors for earning their Fine Arts Diploma Seal. This state-recognized program is an opportunity for students to demonstrate mastery of their content areas of focus and is a large celebration of dedication to the arts in their high school careers. Students receive a gold seal on their diplomas and a pink/white/brown honor cord to wear at commencement. Congratulations, actors, musicians, and artists!
