  • Where do I enter the building and where are my classes?
  • What will my schedule be like?
  • When and where do I eat lunch?
  • What if my locker doesn’t work?
  • What kinds of classes will I have?
  • What sort of supplies do I need?
  • What are the rules like at Mill Creek?
  • What else should I know before starting middle school?

This is a very important meeting for parents and students. We hope you will join us.

This year we will be recognizing many of our great students in the area of citizenship by having a Mill Creek Student of the Month.  We will be asking staff to nominate students monthly.  There are several selections in which a student can be nominated:  Following the rules daily; Encouraging students to do the right thing; Presenting as a Life Long Learner; Exemplary Behavior; Doing what is best for themselves and others; and Showing improvement in a specific area.  Students who are chosen will have their picture taken and will be on display next to the office.  We are excited to honor many of Mill Creek’s best!

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 Meetings

April 22  7:00 PM at Comstock Park High School

May 13  7:00 PM at Mill Creek Middle School

All parents are welcome to join us.


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.
