There’s still time for you to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey! These results contribute to our overall school climate rating. We want your feedback. If you haven’t already done so, click on the link below and take just a few minutes to complete it!!

Georgia Parent Survey

The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions. The survey may be completed using your personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of our School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous, self-reported, and are submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Please note that you may select the Spanish version within the survey. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.

2020 - 2021 SWAT TEAM Applications

Does your child like technology and want to make a difference at Autrey Mill?

Encourage them to apply for our SWAT Team! Our Students Working to Advance Technology Team is looking for new members for the 2020-2021 school year. SWAT Team is an integral part of our school, helping with transformative uses of technology and troubleshooting issues that arise within a 1-to-1 learning environment. Through this opportunity, students will gain valuable, real-life skills that will help them in the future as they learn to navigate customer service needs, speak and present in front of others, and gain leadership skills as they help to implement our technology plan using their own ideas and creativity. Students do not need to know all things tech-related to apply, but do need some working knowledge of how to use an iPad. Our team values a kind heart and willingness to learn, as the technology skills can be taught. Only a select number of students will be accepted onto this team following the application process, teacher recommendations, and an interview.

Applications can be found here:

If you are interested in more information, please email Mrs. Bongiorno at

Attention 6th Grade Parents

You can now log your child’s reading minutes to earn a free ticket to Six Flags Over Georgia! Read To Succeed is a free program that allows students in grades K-6 to earn tickets to Six Flags Over Georgia just by reading six hours for fun. Students will develop a greater appreciation for books when they see that you think reading is important too. You are sure to have fun as you investigate the world of reading together!

There are some changes this year so be aware if your child has previously completed this program.

Here is how your child can earn a free ticket to Six Flags:

  1. We are going digital this year! Register this fall using this link: Visit:
  2. Use Autrey Mill Middle School's code: PNR8M and select their ELA/Reading Teacher.
  3. Your child may read any books they choose.
  4. Keep track of your child’s reading using the form given to them by their ELA/Reading Teacher.
  5. Record your child’s reading at our website.
  6. Receive a free Six Flags Over Georgia ticket from Autrey Mill Middle School in May!

Do NOT return the reading log sheet to your teacher. Log your child’s reading using the link and code above.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s ELA/reading teacher or Mrs. Bongiorno Thank you!

Attendance Notes

If your student is out of school for an illness or doctor's appointment, you must send a signed note to the front office within 5 days of the absence. Do not send the notes to their teachers via email. The notes should include first name, last name, date(s) and student's grade. Attendance will be adjusted within 24 to 48 hours.

Approved Absences

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 must be pre-approved.

8th Grade Walking Tour Through Historical Roswell

We are excited to offer the Autrey Mill eighth grade students a walking tour through historical Roswell. Through a partnership between the Fulton County Schools Teaching Museum and the City of Roswell, Georgia history comes alive during the tour which include visits to antebellum homes, a historic chapel, the town square, and multiple “come-to-life” historical figures based on primary source documents.

The teaching museum can only accommodate 250 students at one time, so half the students will attend the trip on Monday, March 23, 2020, and the other half will go on Wednesday, March 25, 2020. We will load the buses at 9:00 a.m. and return by 1:00 p.m. for lunch. The 8th grade will have a different class schedule those two days to accommodate the trip.

The trip is free to all students, but parents must complete the permission form located HERE for their student to attend the trip. Permission forms are due by Wednesday, March 18, 2020. If a student misses the field trip due to an absence, they will not be permitted to attend on another day due to space limitations.

This is a great opportunity for 8th grade students to experience Georgia history.

If you have any questions regarding the trip, please contact me at
