NFCC Holiday Program Thank You

Autrey Mill Middle School,

On behalf of our clients, our Board of Directors and our staff, I would like to personally thank you for your donation of toys for our Holiday Program.

With your help, we helped to provide 1234 children a very Merry Christmas! We are blessed to have you as a friend, and appreciate your continued support of the programs at North Fulton Community Charities.

Thank you so much for recognizing the need and caring about the families we serve that need our help.

Parents of Rising 9th Graders

All 8th grade students will attend one of three scheduled transition tours to Johns Creek High School during the week of January 21-23, 2020. Students will be assigned a day to visit the school with their first period class. The JCHS counselors will also be meeting with students on these days to discuss course electives.

We are excited about the opportunity for the students to explore the school layout, learn about course offerings, and ask questions.

Please complete the form from SmartWaiver by Wednesday, January 15, 2020, in order for your son/daughter to attend the visit.

If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Santos, 8th grade counselor, at

Thank you.

The Scoop on Attendance!

Absence notes are to be turned in to the front office within 5 days of the absence, per Fulton County policy. All notes should have the student’s first and last name, grade, date(s) and reason for the absence.

If you receive an attendance notification regarding your student, please go to the Parent Portal on Infinite Campus to see which period(s) the student missed. If you have a question, please contact the teacher(s) for more information. If a correction to the attendance record is required, the teacher will notify the appropriate staff member. If the notification is regarding a full day of absence, please send a note to the front office within 5 days as described above.

Approved absences for travel opportunities or important family events must be pre-arranged PRIOR to the date(s) of the absence. Please contact the appropriate grade level Assistant Principal via email, requesting approval for the days your student will miss. These types of absences are limited to 6 days per school year and will not be approved “after the fact”.

7th Grade Rock Eagle Trip

We are proud to offer the Autrey Mill seventh grade students an exciting and educational trip to Rock Eagle 4H Center. The Rock Eagle Trip will take place March 18th – March 20th in Eatonton, GA.

We will be leaving from school on March 18th and returning in the afternoon of March 20th. We will have approximately 25-30 staff chaperones accompanying the students. We will travel to Rock Eagle in luxury motor coaches.

The cost of the trip is $190. All students who would like to participate will be given the opportunity to do so. We feel all students will benefit from this activity; however, attendance is not required and in no way affects a student's instruction or evaluation. We do reserve the right to cancel this field trip if sufficient money is not available to cover all costs.

Please contact Dr. Mimi Gamel ( with any questions or concerns.

What to do now?

Information and Permission Form - Form is due: Friday, February 7th.

All students must have medical insurance coverage to attend the trip. When completing the permission form, have your student's medical insurance information handy. If your student does not have medical insurance, TW LORD is a low-cost option (1-800-633-2360).

Packing List

Online School Payment - Payment is due: Friday, February 7th

Medication Forms - Due to Clinic: Friday, February 28th.



There will be a parent meeting for those interested in learning more about the 7th grade Rock Eagle Field Trip. In an effort to accommodate most parents, we have scheduled two meetings on Wednesday, January 22, 2020. The morning session will be held at 9:30 a.m. and the evening session will be held at 6:00 p.m. in the Media Center at Autrey Mill Middle School.

All pertinent information will be covered at this meeting, including deadlines for permission forms, payment, medicines, and dietary restrictions. These meetings are optional, though encouraged for parents who have questions about the trip. All paperwork can be found on the Autrey Mill Website.
