PSAT: All Students Need a School-Issued Device
PSAT is quickly approaching! On October 12, Cambridge will be giving the PSAT to 9th, 10th, and 11th graders. Students must have a school-issued device (fully charged) to take the test. If students show up without a school-issued device, they will not be allowed to take the PSAT. Students who do not have a device need to go today to the Media Center and check one out.
More information about the PSAT can be found on Cambridge's website. Use this link to access this information.

Be the B.R.I.D.G.E
We are always looking for ways to build culture at CHS, and this year, we want to more frequently recognize students and staff who epitomize Be the B.R.I.D.G.E. We would like to reward these students and staff for their continuous hard work through donated gift cards. So, we are asking if your family can pitch in a small gift card between 5-20 dollars; we could really make a few students’ and teachers’ day. Have your student bring gift cards of small denominations to the Bridge East Front Office.
Starbucks, Target, Amazon, Publix, Dunkin Donuts, and local restaurants are all surefire ways to make someone’s day but feel free to clean out that kitchen catch-all drawer.
