Yes…we plan to starve our Grade 7 students for 30 hours. But, there’s a very good reason for it!
We are pleased that our Grade 7 students at Cambridge will participate in our first ever “Cambridge Cares” 30-Hour Famine. The purpose of the event is to raise money for selected charities – charities our students will select. Student will collect pledges from family members and friends, then from 8:00 a.m. on December 4 until 2:00 p.m. on December 5, students and teachers will not eat, consuming only water and juice.
As an added bonus, students will stay at school overnight. Waking supervision will be provided by a team of parents.
It will be a challenge for our students, but we know they will persevere! If you know a Grade 7 student, please encourage them and support them financially. Thank you!
CHALLENGE TO STUDENTS!
Students are invited to produce their very own 60-second video on the theme of THOUGHTFULNESS. Students can work on their own, in pairs, or with a small group. Videos will be assessed based on creativity and how well they convey the idea of THOUGHTFULNESS. The most effective videos will be shown at the next assembly on November 28 and published on CambridgeLearns. ALL participants will have their name entered into a draw for some very cool prizes. HAVE FUN!
Deadline for submissions is Monday, November 24!
We are quickly closing in on our season-end playday and our student athletes have made great progress in their volleyball skills. Both our boys and girls teams travelled to M.B. Sanford this past week and played very well. Come support our teams this coming Wednesday and Thursday as we take on teams from Chimney Hill and William Watson at home. Go Comets!!!!

By this time, many of you should now be receiving ongoing updates regarding your child’s learning via a new tool called “FreshGrade” being used by teachers. Updates take the form of notes, images, video, and audio, and are sent to parents via email. Some teachers are using FreshGrade regularly while others are still receiving training, learning, and becoming more comfortable with the tool.
We want YOUR FEEDBACK regarding the difference receiving ongoing information about your child’s learning is making. Please use the link above to leave your comment. Thank you!
Did you also know that there is an APP that allows you to access your child’s learning portfolio and reports online?
Hear and see what Cambridge teachers, parents, and students are saying about FreshGrade:
VIDEO OF THE WEEK: LOVING AND LETTING GO
Our hearts and thoughts go out to one of our Cambridge families who lost a loved one this past week. This difficult time reminds us of the preciousness of life and how important it is to live life fully. When is the last time you told someone dear to you that you love them? Today is a great day to do it.
