Principal's Message

  • Principal's Message
    Dear Miller Community,



    On Friday, March 20, Governor Ducey and Superintendent of Public Instruction Hoffman extended the state-wide closure of all Arizona public schools until April 10.This was a preventative measure in order to help stop community spread of COVID-19.  Miller Elementary School fully supports the Governor's call for closure and TUSD's plans for supporting our families through these extraordinary times.


    We have several important links on our homepage that can help families find a wide variety of information.  The "FREE Grab and Go Meals" link will give you information on where all children, 18 years and younger, can get free meals from TUSD.  The "Learn From Home" link will provide learning resources for students of all ages.  This will help students access their Clever accounts and other non TUSD resources.  We recommend the Scholastics at Home website because it has a great section for everyday learning based on specific grade levels.  


    We are working with the district this week to adapt our teaching and will have a plan soon.  As these plans are finalized we will share them with you and provide updates soon.  


    Please know that school closures are not "extended vacations".  Follow social distancing whenever possible as the Center for Disease Control recommends.  Avoid outings to parks, malls and other places where there are large gatherings of people.  Make a daily schedule, like this one on so that your student can continue to have a learning structure in place.  Find new ways to learn as a family and don't forget to continue reading every day.


    Thank you for your continued patience and support.



    Maricella Carranza, M. Ed.


What Makes Us Special

Miller Elementary is committed to maintaining a positive learning community where students develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for contributing to a multi-cultural society.

Teachers use arts and technology as tools to help connect with children. The Opening Minds through the Arts (OMA) program incorporates language arts, math, social studies and science into visual and performing arts programs. Every class has access to an interactive electronic response system that teachers can use to gather student opinions and generate discussion topics.

Miller also values parent and community involvement. The school has community representatives who encourage parents to be involved in the school, and families are invited to monthly meetings on topics that relate to their children’s education.
