Congratulation Cambridge Math Team!

On Saturday, the Cambridge Math Team traveled to Macon, GA, to compete in the GCTM State Tournament. Invitations to this tournament are extended only to teams who displayed outstanding performance in tournaments earlier in the school year. As such, the Cambridge Math Team was competing against the very best math teams in the state. Cambridge was one of only two Fulton schools in attendance. The team finished 11th (out of 22 schools) and 2nd within their division. Individually, 12th grader Dmitry Demin finished 22nd overall, and 9th grader Tanav Prabhu finished 42nd overall. Also in attendance were 12th grader Disha Baglodi and 11th grader Rachel Bell.

Senior Check Out

Senior Exit Survey and Final Transcripts (Counseling Check-Out) - Due May 5

Before seniors can graduate, there are two mandatory steps to be completed. Failure to complete the following steps will result in the senior not being cleared to walk at graduation, diploma being held, and/or colleges not getting the senior’s final transcript and jeopardizing final acceptance. The deadline for completing these two steps is May 5, 2022.

  • Complete the Senior Exit Survey in Naviance. It includes a process for requesting the final transcript to be sent to the college(s) of your choice.
  • Please fill out the Counseling Senior Checkout Form and submit it to the Counseling Office by May 5, 2022.

If you have any questions or need help, please contact your assigned counselor. The form can be found at Graduation and Seniors > Senior Check out.


Senior Check-out (Devices, Media Center items, and textbooks)

Seniors must complete a Senior Check-out Form to ensure that they have closed out any assignment with teachers, that textbooks have been returned to their teachers, and devices, library books, and calculators have been returned to the media center. This verification that a senior is clear with no outstanding fines is due May 13, 2022. Diplomas will be held for any senior who has outstanding fees or fines. Graduation and Seniors > Senior Check Out.

Senior Scholarship Survey

If your senior has been offered scholarships, please let us know by filling out the Scholarship Survey in Naviance. Seniors should look under the tab Tasks Assigned to Me.

For seniors who participated in Dual Enrollment, they must request their final transcript from the Dual Enrollment College they attended and have it sent to the college they are attending after graduation. This is required to transfer the student's competed course to his/her college.
