A Welcome Back from Mr. Ortman and Miss Braksator

A Terrific Start!!!

On behalf of the entire Mill Creek staff, Miss Braksator and I would like to thank you for helping to make the start of the school so successful! On August 31st, nearly 900 children began the 2015-2016 school year. They looked happy and excited for a fresh start and a brand new grade level. Since that first day, the teachers and students have spent time building a positive classroom community, setting goals for the year, and diving into their academics.


Miss Braksator and I enjoyed seeing all of you during last week's Back-to-School Nights. We hope you enjoyed meeting your children's teachers and learning about what is planned for this school year. The Mill Creek staff is committed to providing a top-notch education to the students, and that happens best when home and school work together and communicate. Do not hesitate to contact the school if you have questions or concerns. We thank you in advance for your support, understanding, and cooperation.


Sincerely,

Shawn M. Ortman, Principal
