Welcome to my website.  Please refer here for any important information concerning ELA, as well as, other information and events at Awtrey Middle School.  I am available during regular school hours Monday--Friday by e-mail at pamela.peck@cobbk12.org

 

Thank you to all of my wonderful Awtrey families and students who have sent their condolences to me during this time of loss.  I appreciate all of the kind words and prayers that have been sent to me and my famiy.  We are very grateful.
