Yearbook Photos- Are You In?!

Student Selfie Portraits...from home! We STILL need your student portraits in order to get every student into the yearbook.  Please take a few minutes at home to take, then share, a wonderful “school picture style” photo of your student.  Use this link to submit the student portraits or download the Herff Jones eShare app to your phone. Our school code is MILLER CREEK.  That will get you into the software to upload your portrait.  Please see the tips and suggestions flyer to help create high-quality portraits to share in the yearbook. PORTRAITS ARE NOW OVERDUE, PLEASE GET THEM IN BY FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12TH.

Reminders

We have created staggered start and end times for the safety of our students and staff. Please remember to have students report to campus no earlier that 10 minutes before their first class of the day. Please also remember to complete your child's Safety IPass before sending them to school. Lastly, please remind your Panther to lock their scooters and bikes while on campus.


Do you feel like your child could use a mental health check-in? Please reach out to us if you’d like to schedule an appointment for your child. We are always here for you and your family.

Hello Miller Creek Mountain Bike Club and team members, as well as new and/or interested riders,

We are BACK and looking forward to seeing you with your masks, gloves, and helmets on for a socially distanced local ride from Miller Creek Middle School but first....

MCMS's Spring Fundraiser: The Kindness Challenge

Coming up in March... the MCMS Home & School Club will host its one and only annual fundraiser. This year we will be doing The Kindness Challenge, where students will do an act of kindness every day for two weeks. Funds will be raised online through 99Pledges and benefit our student programs, classroom supplies, technology infrastructure, and more. Participating students will earn rewards and be entered into a raffle to win amazing prizes! Although it's a difficult time to ask for donations, this year's event is very necessary because we skipped last year's fundraiser (due to Covid), and we have no Creek Cafe revenue this year. So if you can participate, great! If you can't, we totally understand. More details to come!  


SHOW YOUR CAN DO! LOVE 

The Family Giving Campaign has not yet reached its goal of $450,000 and WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Donate online today. These vital programs and services are ONLY available as a result of the support and generosity of our community. During this unprecedented time, your contribution is needed NOW, more than ever. Thank you to everyone who has contributed!
