Due to the storm and testing,
roommate selection will be delayed until September 29.
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.
The cost of the trip is $250. 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.
