Holiday Movie Night- 2017

Treats for Troops


Awtrey’s “Holiday Treats for Troops” is a week-long drive, December 4-11, and members of our school community are invited to donate requested treats.

Chief Master Sergeant Rob Hutchins (Awtrey teacher) and Specialist Andrew Smart (son of Awtrey teacher Robin McDaniel and sister of Awtrey paraprofessional Laurel Smart) who are currently serving overseas will receive these treats to share with the troops.

We are also requesting CASH DONATIONS to mail donated treats (checks payable to “Awtrey Middle School”).
Students may bring donated treats to homerooms, and the front office will also be accepting donations.



Here is more information and a list of items we are collecting. TROOPS

Giving Tree

Our Community Outreach Committee at Awtrey would like to foster the spirit of giving by offering assistance to families in need and allowing other families in our school community to support our community. We will be sponsoring the Giving Tree this holiday season. The “ornaments” on a Giving Tree are the specific toy and clothing needs of children in our community who may not receive gifts otherwise. It is our hope to help the families of our students who need assistance with clothing and toy requests. The Giving Tree will be accessible to Awtrey staff members and other adults in our school community to choose ornaments and to fulfill a specific request (“Giving Tree” will be accessed on-line).
If you would like your family to be considered for our Giving Tree program, please see below. All submissions must be completed and turned no later than Wednesday, December 13th. All information will be kept confidential. If there are any questions an Awtrey staff member will be contacting families.

For information how to be considered or how to help families in our community, please see the Giving Tree Letter 2017.
