We want to share a few friendly reminders before we go on our Dahlonega Field Trip on Friday, March 17. 

  • Students may begin arriving school at 6:30 am and should be dropped off in the school bus port.
  • Teachers will take roll on the bus at 6:50 am.  Buses will leave at 7:00 am, NO EXCEPTIONS!
    • After 7:00 am, there will not be anybody present to supervise children until 8:15 (when the school building is opened)
    • Dress Code: please wear school appropriate clothing, close toed shoes, and bring a jacket for the Amicalola Falls hike
    • Lunch is included and consists of 2-3 slices of either cheese or pepperoni pizza (student choice), a soft drink, and a dessert cake
      • If you child cannot or does not want to eat this lunch, then please provide a sack lunch (no coolers allowed)
      • Per the Bus company ~ Students may bring snacks for the bus:
        • MUST have their drinks in a plastic bottle with a lid
        • CANNOT include peanut or nut products
        • CANNOT have gum or small candies (Skittles, M&M’s, Nerds, etc)
        • Buses will be arriving back between 6:00-6:30 and parents should be at Awtrey NO LATER THAN 6:00 to pick up your child.
        • To pick up students, you will need to park in the front of the building. You will need to walk back to the bus port to meet and pick up your student.  We need to leave the bus port free to have room to unload the buses.

This field trip is an extension of the school day and students represent themselves, their teachers, and Awtrey Middle School.  Any behavior issues suffered on this field trip will be addressed upon return to Awtrey or through our administrator on the trip.





  All About Me:


Me at HalloweenLee, Jocie, and Heidi


I'm originally from North Alabama, in the Shoals area.  I'm a two-time graduate of Auburn University (War Eagle!) with my Bachelor's and Master's degrees, and a graduate of the University of West Georgia with my Specialist of Education.  I'm married to a life-long Cobb County resident who is a teacher as well.  We have two daughters; an nine-year old and a three-year old.  

I'm beginning my 15th year in education, actually returning to the classroom after being in a district position for the last nine years. 

I'm looking forward to a great year with all of our students at Awtrey Middle School!

Extra Math Help:



If your child needs additional math help, we offer three weekly math help sessions. Each session begins at 8:15am. The locations and days are as follows:




Monday in Mrs. Hazelip's room (A-2): On-Level Math 6 Focus


Wednesday in Ms. Gonzalez's room (A-3): On-Level Math 6 Focus


Wednesday in Mrs. Shepherd's room (A-6): Math 6/7 & Adv. Math Focus




Students may attend any help session if they wish; however, my session and Ms. Gonzalez's session will be focused on On-Level Math 6 classes, and Mrs. Shepherd's session will focus on Math6/7 and Advanced Math 6 classes.







Hazelip's Wish List:


  • Tissues 
  • Hand sanitizer 
  • Expo Markers
  • Tape 
  • Glue 
  • Colored Pencils
  • Crayons
  • Markers
  • Pencils
  • Erasers
  • Notebook Paper
  • Anything else you want to donate! I'll take it all :)








Please make sure your student has their own personal calculator. This is a requirement. It needs to be a basic, 4-function calculator. Students will need their own calculator for the Milestone as we are not allowed to supply students with calculators for the test. Students will only be allowed to use basic calculators on the Milestone, so please don't waste your money buying anything too fancy :) You can get a basic calculator at the Dollar Tree, Target, and Wal-mart, all for about $1.00!
