Welcome to Mill Street School! On behalf of our entire staff, let me express the excitement with which we begin this new school year. We are looking forward to working with you and your children as we live our mission in supporting students to be self-directed learners, collaborative workers, complex thinkers, quality producers, and community contributors.
Mill Street is a vibrant, student centered, and innovative school. We strive to provide the best possible environment to foster both high academic achievement and social emotional health and wellbeing. Our goal is to work in close partnership with you to ensure that all students succeed in reaching their potential.
Please take advantage of the many ways in which our district and staff will be communicating with you throughout the year. This school website is valuable resource worth visiting throughout the year in order to gather information about events, resources, staff, and specific grade level curriculum. In addition, Talk203 is a vital tool used at both the district and school level to communicate important information regarding events and emergencies via email, phone, and text message. Families are automatically registered for this service at the time of enrollment. Messages related to school business are sent out weekly.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s experience at Mill Street please do not hesitate to contact myself and or our Assistant Principal, Suzanne Moores. Our staff welcomes and invites you to be an active partner in your child’s learning career. We look forward to an exciting and productive year!
FOCUS 2020 is the strategic plan for comprehensive improvement between 2014 and 2020, designed in response to community feedback, best practice, and a vision for the future. Ultimately, this blueprint will advance the fulfillment of the district’s mission.
FOCUS 2020’s foundation is the Future Focus Community Engagement process that occurred over the course of a year where hundreds of members from across the community provided feedback to the district leadership regarding areas such as facilities, finances, measuring student success, and programs of study. Learn more about Future Focus by clicking on the specific “Quick Link” to the left of this text.
The Blueprint includes four “Strategic Focus” areas, namely to:
Design and implement effective practices that promote learning experiences for all.
Foster a high-performance culture focused on student learning.
Steward resources effectively to promote student learning.
Effective communication and community relations.
Each Strategic Focus then establishes “Commitments.” These commitments are what the district leadership pledges to accomplish within a distinct timeframe. Each commitment then includes a detailed “Action Plan” which will be accessible by the public upon final draft.
District administrators provided an update on Blueprint Commitments to the Board of Education at the July 27, 2015 meeting. To watch that presentation, please click here.
