Principal's Message

Dear Students and Parents:

 Welcome to the 2010-2011 school year!  The Awtrey community is committed to providing a positive, challenging, and academically oriented learning environment for all students.  Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies classes use the Georgia Performance Standards which focus on students’ demonstrating mastery of curriculum.  Our goal is to provide learning activities which require high levels of critical thinking and reasoning, accompanied by application of learning to real-world situations.  Additionally, teachers will be focusing on specific skills in each of the content areas that, based on achievement data, need improvement.  An emphasis on reading and writing skills will be evident in all content areas.  Along with a strong academic program, there are many opportunities for our students to learn about music, technology, art, journalism, and health and wellness.  Our teachers are experienced and dedicated professionals who are committed to helping all students reach their full potential.

 The administrators will visit each classroom during the first two weeks of school to assist the students’ transition to a new school year.  We will talk about high expectations, and challenge all students to do what it takes to be successful.  We will address the need for them to demonstrate the will to succeed and their faith in themselves to believe that anything is possible.  Our Awtrey Attitudes will be reviewed during this time, and will also be showcased on this year’s Awtrey Attitude T-shirts which will be the result of a student design contest.

 Success is not a matter of luck, but planning and organization.  Parents, you can support your student during middle school by checking to make sure that assignments are completed, staying in contact with teachers via email or telephone, and joining PTSA.  Awtrey’s PTSA is a strong organization that needs parent volunteers to support various programs and activities.  The consistent support and encouragement of parents result in greater success for all students.

 I look forward to another successful school year.  Please stay involved, and call on your child’s teacher, counselor, or administrator for any assistance you may need during the 2010-2011 school year.
