MISSION

The mission of Mill Creek Middle School staff is to prepare students for adolescence and high school years while educating them to become life-long learners.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES

Before you know it you will be shopping for school supplies. Here are the lists of recommended school supplies for our students. Please keep in mind that these supplies should last them the entire year if they take good care of their supplies. For example, if we suggest 8 gluesticks, only one or two is needed at school at a time.

SCHOOL INFORMATION

Mike Brown is our Board of Education Building Liaison for the 2013-14 school year. You may contact him at mbrown@cppschools.com.

OPEN HOUSE

OPEN HOUSE – TUESDAY, AUGUST 26, 5:00 – 7:00 PM

Our Open House is designed for the students to meet their teachers, try their locker combination and orient themselves to the building. Due to the limited time, teachers will not be able to meet one on one with parents. If you would like to meet with a teacher please let them know and they will do their best to find a time to meet with you. You may always email your child’s teachers if this is more convenient for you. There is a list of staff members with email links and links to their webpages on the left side of this webpage.

In an effort to help with parking needs we are asking you to attend during the following times.
Students with last name starting with A-L attend between 5:00 - 6:00.
Students with last name starting with M-Z attend between 6:00-7:00.

Your student’s schedule will arrive in the mail in the middle of August. PLEASE BRING THIS SCHEDULE WITH YOU TO THE OPEN HOUSE. A convenient map of the school will be printed on the back. You can use this to find the rooms of your child’s teachers in preparation of the Open House. Please plan to stop in the media center for information about many school related things.

Mill Creek Middle School students do not attend an orientation. School pictures are NOT taken at our Open House.

PAC MEETINGS

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, one on one, 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

Dates of Upcoming PAC Meeting
