The mission of Mill Creek Middle School is to prepare students for adolescence and high school years while educating them to become life-long learners.  To that end, many staff members communicate information (i.e. daily homework) to parents and students via various technology platforms.  On this website, you will find the best ways to connect with what’s happening in class—classroom webpages, Remind messages, and other helpful resources.  These resources are for parents but we also encourage students too--in order to become more responsible for their own academic progress.

What is the Parent Advisory Council (PAC)?

The PAC is similar but different from elementary PTO’s. It is a meeting opportunity for me as the principal to talk with parents, in person, to discuss school operations and functions. It is a chance for you as parents to hear proposals, voice ideas, suggestions and concerns. There are no fund raising opportunities associated with the PAC. I view it as an open line of communication that you don’t receive through written forms of communication. In summary, it’s an opportunity for you to be heard. - Gus Harju 

Meetings are held at 7:00 pm in Room 101 at Mill Creek located right inside the School ST entrance. Upcoming meeting are September 20, November 29, January 24, March 28, and May 16.

As a parent of a middle school student you will soon notice that your child no longer brings notes home as was the main means of communication in elementary school. At Mill Creek Middle School we rely heavily on electronic communications.

Here's what we do to keep you informed:

Have you ever wondered "How do I get in that school? There are so many doors!" Hopefully the map below can help.

All students being dropped off before school and/or picked up after school should use the School ST parking lot. This is for all grades.
No students should ever be dropped off or picked up in the Office parking lot.

The Betty ST parking lot is for buses only.

During the school day the only door that is unlocked is the Betty St office. Our office hours are 7:00 - 3:15.
