Principal's Message

Welcome back Firebird Families,

We are thrilled to begin our 2018/19 school year in our beautiful new school!  Our school-wide theme this year is “This is Me,” inspired by the movie The Greatest Showman.  At Richard E. Miller we believe we R.each E.very M.ind, by developing and embracing everyone’s strengths and being proud of the unique qualities we all bring each day.  We acknowledge that each person has gifts that contribute to making our school and community the great place it is!  So when you see our staff wearing shirts that say “This is Me #Millerstrong” that is our way of demonstrating our pride in the strengths we bring to our school each day to share with our students and community.

As we begin our year, I want to remind all parents and families how important it is to us to have you on our campus.  It brings so much joy not only to us, but also to your children…they love seeing you here!  If you would like to be more involved in our school, you can volunteer, participate in the P.T.O., attend coffee with the principal, sign up for Site Council, or join the planning committee for our 50th Anniversary this year.  Be on the lookout for the dates for those upcoming events in our newsletter, and on our bulletin outside of our school.  We would love to have you here! 

We had a fantastic turnout for our Meet the teacher event last week.  Thank you for making our night the best we’ve had in years!  Wishing all returning families a warm welcome back, and if you are new to our community, we are happy to have you with us. 


Looking forward to a wonderful school year ahead!

Your grateful and proud principal,


Amanda Wilber
