We are proud to offer the Autrey Mill eighth grade students an exciting and educational trip to Savannah, GA. The Georgia Trip will take place November 1st – November 2nd and will include visits to First African Baptist Church, River Street, Forsyth Park, and historic tours of Savannah.
The trip is being sponsored by Autrey Mill Middle School's 8th Grade Social Studies Department. We will be leaving before school on November 1st and returning in the evening of November 2nd. We will have forty staff chaperones with an expected ratio of 12 students for every adult.
We will travel to Savannah in luxury motor coaches. While in Savannah, 8th Grade Georgia Studies comes to life as student will visit historic homes, cemeteries and places of historic interest. We also offer students some social time with shopping on River Street Park and an evening riverboat cruise and dance.
The cost of the trip is $225. All students who would like to participate will be given the opportunity to do so, regardless of receipt of payment. 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 Anita Erickson (Ericksona@fultonschools.org) with any questions or concerns.
