WELCOME BACK!  BIENVENIDOS!

 Dear Parents/Guardians,

It is with excitement that I write to you as the new (and very proud) principal of Miller Elementary for '22-'23.

 I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself to those who I don't know yet and share a little more with those that I do know. I will be returning to Miller after serving as an Assistant Principal at another school this past year. Prior to that, I have served as MTSS Facilitator and as a classroom teacher in 3rd and 1st grade. I was born into a family of educators and found my passion for education early on in my life - despite trying to fight the inevitable and briefly attending school for Physical Sciences. I have a bachelor's in Elementary Education and a master's in Educational Adminstration.

I am an Arizona native, born and raised in Sierra Vista - just south of Tucson. I am married to my husband, Ricky, who serves in the U.S. Air Force. Together we have 1 daughter, Melanie who will be in 1st grade and we also have my "bonus" kids, Mya who is 18 and Ryan who is 17 and a Senior in High School. As a family we enjoy traveling, swimming, eating and family movie nights. Personally, I enjoy reading, being outdoors and a good cup of coffee.

I look forward to meeting and serving the Miller Community!

Mrs. Lindsey Aragon
Principal
Miller Elementary
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.
Principal's Message
August 2022
Welcome Back!

I am so excited to be here at Miller and getting to work alongside our amazing community. This will be an exciting school year filled with many opportunities for continued personal and academic success, and I look forward to meeting all of you throughout the year.

Respectfully,

Mrs. Lindsey Aragon

Student Dismissal Information

*At the end of the day all students will be walked outside to the south side of the school with their class for dismissal. You or whomever is picking up your child will remain in the car and wait in the designated pickup line (the bus bay on the south side of the school on Avenida Isabel). Please do not park in this area as we want to keep traffic flowing and staff members will help place your child in your car through the passenger side.
*If you would like to pick up your child at their classroom backdoor or in the back with their teacher you are welcome to do so but you must park, get down, and enter/exit through the west or north gate.
*Parents/Guardians will not be permitted to enter or exit from the gate on the south side of the school because we need to ensure that the designated crosswalks are used, and we need to make sure kids are getting into the correct vehicle. We also cannot have parents and children walking through the valet line. Again, you may use the entrances on the west and north sides of the school. There will not be a parent pick up line in the main parking lot and we cannot allow students to walk through or wait in the parking lot to be picked up.
*If your child walks home or rides the bus, Miller staff will be guiding them to the bus bay and crosswalk areas. Miller Elementary School - Home of the Mustangs!
