  • Parent Drop-off and Pick up
    Please drop off your student in the designated drop off area of campus:

Principal's Message

  • Principal's Message for August 2019



    Dear Miller Families,


    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I am super excited about all the positive changes this year will bring. There are several new staff members to welcome this year and we look forward to making Miller their home.


    The first day of school is Thursday August 1, 2019. You can find out your child’s teacher by calling the front office. We will also have staff available with class lists on the first day of school that will be able to help you as well.


     If you will be dropping off your student, please make sure you drop them off at the designated drop off area on the south side of the school (Calle Isabel) or at the east side of the parking lot between the new and old buildings, not the flagpole.  The first bell will ring promptly at 8:18 am and the second bell will ring at 8:20 am. Students may be on campus starting at 7:50 am. If you want you child on campus before that please see the front office about our before/after school program.


    August brings us Open House, Title 1 parent workshops, Miller Morning family informational meetings and PTO (Parent-Teacher Organization) meetings. Please be on the lookout for any fliers from the office or your child’s teacher. In order for us to better prepare for the rest of the year, we need your help. We have gotten rid of the paper registration forms however, your child’s teacher may be sending home important paperwork that they need you to return as soon as possible. This will help us update your information so we may reach you in case of an emergency, transportation questions, as well as general information such as your child’s likes and dislikes.

    Like last year, we have many great enrichment and intervention teams set up to support the classroom teacher working with your child at their level in both language arts and math. Our goals are to keep our students and families safe and make a positive impact in our students and families education. We look forward to having a great year. Please look for our monthly newsletters from the office of the principal, as well as weekly/monthly newsletters from your child’s teacher and phone calls with important information from the TUSD Parent Link messaging system. We have many educational opportunities monthly and would like your input.


    Thank you so much for choosing Miller Elementary School to set the foundation for the rest of your child’s educational path. We put children first and know that with strong collaboration, we can make a difference in every child.


    Welcome to Miller and thank you!


    Maricella Carranza, Principal

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.
