The theme for this year is "Love Yourself Be Drug Free". Each fall during Red Ribbon Week, communities unite to educate children about the harmful effects of drugs and to show them the benefits of a drug free lifestyle. Attention-getting activities and memorable lessons fill the week. With more than 100,000 schools and organizations taking part, Red Ribbon Week is the largest anti-drug event in the United States.
Autrey Mill Middle School will recognize Red Ribbon Week with the following events:
On Monday, students will sign a pledge in their homerooms to be Drug Free to kick off the week and will receive a red wristband to wear to show their support.
Students will hear daily informational announcements to educate them about the benefits of a drug free lifestyle.
Each day will have a specific Drug Free theme and the students will wear attire that coordinates with the day's theme. SHOW YOUR TEAM SPIRIT AND PLEDGE TO BE DRUG FREE!!!

In connection with the study of Europe this semester, the 6th grade will take a field trip to Medieval Times located in Lawrenceville, GA. Medieval Times is an exciting, two-hour dinner show that reenacts life in the Middle Ages with knights, horses, jousting, audience participation and a four course meal. The Medieval Times company provides special discounted matinee showings for student groups. For more information about the venue and show, please visit the Medieval Times' website at http://www.medievaltimes.com. Students will leave for the show at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, November 14th and will return by approximately 2:00 p.m. that afternoon. We will be traveling by commercial busses and will have 30+ adult chaperones.
SPECIAL NOTE: Persons with respiratory conditions, allergies, or asthma should be aware that Medieval Times is a live horse show with stroboscopic and pyrotechnic effects in an enclosed arena.
The cost of the trip is $50.00 for each student. The cost includes the show, meal and transportation. Please make checks payable to AMMS. All students who wish to participate will be given the opportunity to do so, regardless of receipt of payment. We feel that all sixth grade students will benefit from this unique educational trip; however, participation is not required and will in no way affect any student's instruction or evaluation. We do reserve the right to cancel this field trip if sufficient money is not available to cover costs. Please return the entire form with payment no later than Wednesday, October 22nd.
